During the holiday season, materials firm Rainmaker Polymers LLC is spotlighting Rainmaker Gives Back, a long-standing program that enables the firm's customers to direct $11,000 of Rainmaker funds, $150 at a time a maximum of three times, to a charity of the customer's choice.
No matching contribution is required and the contribution is made in the customer's name, President John Urschalitz said in an email. Rainmaker Gives Back "is simply a way for us to say 'thank you' to our customers by supporting a cause of their choosing," he added.
Rainmaker — a compounder and concentrates maker based in Warsaw, Ind. — also makes an annual corporate contribution to a chosen charity. This year, the firm has chosen World Compassion Network, a charity that's been involved in Hurricane Harvey relief. Customers can donate their $450 Rainmaker Gives Back allotment to World Compassion Network or to any other charity of ministry of their choice.
Other charities that have been supported by the Rainmaker Gives Back program include Autism Speaks, Southwest Chicago Christian Schools, the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, Wayne County Relay for Life, Homes 4 Haiti and St. Jude Children's Hospital.
