At Kester Search Group, we are big believers in giving back so a portion of our profits each quarter go to non-profit organizations that help improve lives in our hometown of Greenville, South Carolina, as well as across the nation. Please check out some of our favorite charities, non-profits, and volunteer organizations with whom we partner and support.
KSG's mission is to improve lives, to build great companies, and drive innovation. We also believe in giving back to the community in which we live, work and play.
We are honored to continue our long standing support of the United Way of Greenville, having 100% of our employees donate in 2022, totaling over $20,000, with 80% of employees being names to the Palmetto Society. We also participated in two Habitat for Humanity builds in the past year, which is just one of many organizations that the United Way helps fund.
With the United Way, one hundred percent of dollars donated will go toward meeting the immediate and long-term challenges ahead in Greenville County.
If you can help, please join us at the link below where you can make a secure gift online and also stay up-to-date on how the fund is already hard at work in our Greenville County. If you are not located in the South Carolina Upstate area and want to help those most impacted in your community, we encourage you to seek out your local United Way’s efforts.
Kester Search Group is honored to support The Nature Conservancy's "Plant a Billion Trees" initiative, by pledging to plant 5,000 trees by the end of 2023. KSG is doing this as a way to celebrate our impressive candidates and the wonderful hiring managers that we work with.
Founded in 1951, The Nature Conservancy has become one of the most wide-reaching environment organizations in the world. Their campaign to "Plant a Billion Trees," is a major forest restoration program with the goal to plant a billion trees by 2025, to slow the connected crisis of climate change and biodiversity loss. Trees provide so many benefits including filtering clean air, providing fresh drinking water, and curbing climate change. Our forests are slowly deteriorating and we need to do something now to slow their destruction.
