In the Community
Phoenix's involvement in making the world a better place goes back more than 150 years to one of our founders who, as a noted abolitionist, worked to end slavery in this country. Today, our focus is on helping our home office communities – Hartford, Conn. and Albany, N.Y. – flourish through, employee volunteerism, corporate sponsorships, charitable giving and executive leadership.
Our employees volunteer with great frequency and joy to organizations they care deeply about. Phoenix celebrates its employees’ generosity of time and talent by offering employees up to 40 hours of paid time off each year to match their volunteer time at non-profit organizations of their choice. We also sponsor workplace volunteer activities, including:
Phoenix sponsors the following activities that support economic and cultural development of our city and region:
We focus our efforts to meet basic human needs through our participation in the United Way campaigns in our home office communities. Our annual workplace campaign for the Greater Hartford Arts Council provides funding to local arts and heritage organizations and helps build a vibrant community. And, we support our employees’ generosity by matching their donations to non-profit organizations and providing mini-grants to non-profit organizations for which they volunteer or serve on the board.
Phoenix executives provide leadership on critical community issues, serving as members of Board of Directors and sharing their technical and business expertise on a variety of advisory councils and committees for organizations such as The Connecticut Forum, Connecticut Science Center, Foodshare, Journey Home, MetroHartford Alliance, National Conference for Community and Justice, United Way of Central and Northeastern Connecticut, YMCA of Greater Hartford and more.
Please note that Phoenix does not accept unsolicited applications for charitable contributions or sponsorships.
