Holmes Murphy Foundation

Chairman & CEO Message

Holmes Murphy has always encouraged each one of our employees to Give.Fully. with their time, talents, and treasures dating back to our founders, Max Holmes and Raymond Murphy, Jr.

As we embark upon 2022 and our 90th anniversary, we will continue to play a role in living out our unique potential and purpose and caring for those around us. We believe creating an exceptional employee experience geared toward care, dedication, and support translates into a phenomenal “pay it forward” experience where our employees are empowered to Care.Fully. and Give.Fully. not just to our communities but also to our clients and the industry.

In the year ahead, you will see this activated in a number of ways. Holmes Murphy will be focused on celebrating our rich tradition of helping to create lasting impacts in our local communities through not just monetary donations to organizations within our communities, but also volunteer support from our 1,000-strong Holmes Murphy employee base.

With social responsibility at the core of our Holmes Murphy culture, we recognize that with continued growth and success throughout our 90-year history, we need to remain vigilant in caring for and supporting our local communities. We hope you see this in action.

I can’t end this without a special thank you to Tom Stewart, our Holmes Murphy Foundation Executive Sponsor and the President of Innovative Captive Strategies, a Holmes Murphy subsidiary. His leadership, paired with the vision of our Chief Marketing Officer and Foundation Leader Susan Hatten, has been instrumental in keeping the Foundation alive and well in what certainly has been an unprecedented past two years.

Holmes Murphy has, and always will be, honored to help light the way for change and offer a brighter future for all. Cheers to a healthy, purposeful, and philanthropic 2022!

What Are the Foundation’s Areas of Giving?

 

Safety, Health and Wellbeing

We believe everyone deserves to feel safe, be healthy, and thrive, and yet, so many don’t have access to the resources or interventions needed. We support at-risk, health, and wellbeing human services initiatives that address these growing needs.

Youth Opportunities

We believe proper youth development opportunities are at the forefront of our next generation living their best and most productive life. We support initiatives tied to youth development and enrichment in our communities. Our youth will drive our future.

Arts & Culture

We believe arts and culture are paramount in creating healthy and vibrant communities in which we live, work, and play. We support arts and culture initiatives that allow access to learning opportunities for our employees and their families.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

 We focus on embracing differences with intentionality and with a goal to make a difference at work, home, and in our communities. We support services designed with authenticity and that will help us sustain a culture where every person is supported to reach their fullest potential.

Direct Giving
We believe in supporting causes most closely aligned with our own mission-driven aspirations and those tied to our customers, business partners and local non-profit or charitable organizations.
Submit a Direct Giving Request.
Volunteer Time Off (VTO)
An impression is left with every encounter, and Holmes Murphy is committed to Leaving Good Footprints in our local communities. Therefore, our employees are encouraged to take up to 2 days of Volunteer Time Off (VTO) annually for qualified non-profit agencies.
Employees can request VTO through their respective leaders.
Employee Matching Gift Program
We believe a part of our obligation as an Employer of Choice is to not only encourage community engagement, volunteerism, and advocacy, but to help strengthen our employees’ efforts in the tune of a matching gift.
Request a Foundation match.
