Investors Trust gives The Papillon Foundation a Holiday Gift


In honor of #GivingTuesday, Investors Trust and The Papillon Foundation collaborated on a giving campaign to help provide the communities of Gauteng, South Africa with gifts for the holiday season.

Investors Trust #GivingTuesday Campaign
This year, Investors Trust and The Papillon Foundation joined together to provide special gifts to many impoverished communities in South Africa. Investors Trust organized an internal campaign encouraging all employees to give to The Papillon Foundation in recognition of #GivingTuesday. Working along with the Web masters from The Papillon Foundation, the Investors Trust employee donations were tracked and compiled for a 100 percent match by the Company. Overall, Investors Trust employees raised more than $1,200 USD for The Papillon Foundation, which will help the Foundation provide special gifts to many in this poverty-stricken region, just in time for the holidays.

Recently, Investors Trust introduced the Investors Trust Responsibility Program, a corporate social responsibility program established to enhance the Company’s responsible efforts while holding the Company accountable for its impact on the world. Over the past year, Investors Trust and The Papillon Foundation have formed a unique relationship to strengthen the organization’s efforts in the underprivileged communities of South Africa.
