The MLG team is fortunate to be able to donate time and resources back into our local communities with our goal of “Making a Difference While Making a Living”.
MLG Capital is committed to providing our employees the opportunity to make a difference in their community. The MLG Cares employee-led committee is dedicated to planning and organizing volunteer opportunities throughout the year. These events are offered to our team without the need to take personal time off. We encourage employees to participate in this mission by focusing on initiatives that:
- Make a difference and/or improve the community.
- Cultivate a strong workplace culture.
- Increase and maintain employee engagement.
Two things define you: Your patience when you have nothing and your attitude when you have everything.
George Bernard Shaw
The overall goal of MLG Cares is to provide engagement opportunities for employees and value to the community, in combination with other philanthropic endeavors that we focus on as a company.
Four Pillars of MLG Cares
The goal of the MLG Cares committee is to identify and organize initiatives that cultivate a strong workplace culture and increase and maintain employee engagement through community service. MLG Cares is comprised of 4 pillars:
Developing employee-specific programs and events to encourage team building and collaboration.
Participating in organized volunteer initiatives with local organizations.
Planning, giving and sharing monetary donations to selected organizations.
Providing MLG Investors the opportunity to make charitable contributions through our Private Funds.
The Making A Difference ‘MAD’ Initiative
The goal of the MAD Initiative is to bridge the gap between our business strategy and our philanthropic goals. Positioned as an impact investment opportunity, the MAD Initiative is anchored in, and named after, our firm’s overall objective: making a difference, while making a living.
