Reprinted from Albuquerque Business First, “See how companies like Delta Dental and FBT Architects continue to give back.”
by Juliana Vadnais
Throughout the year we feature businesses that are doing their part to give back to the local community. These organizations donate time, money and manpower to projects and services across Albuquerque. Whether the company is a New Mexico operation or a national one with a presence in the area, we highlight how businesses are helping out.
Our April issue of Giving Back looks at how some companies are giving back to those less fortunate and how a new group is dedicating time and money to giving back throughout the year and beyond. Delta Dental participated in the New Mexico Dental Association Foundation’s Mission of Mercy dental clinic in Santa Fe and St. Martin’s Hospitality Center celebrated its annual Stone Soup event to raise money to end homelessness.
Albuquerque Community Foundation launched a new Social Giving Club with 30 members. FBT Architects donated memberships to the club to nine of their employees. Membership is $1,000, half of which goes into an endowed fund to support future grantmaking and half is pooled together for one big award at the end of the year to go to an organization decided upon by the members.
