The NEXT STEP Philanthropy Program was created because we believe that NEXT Marketing must provide more than successful and effective marketing in business. We want to contribute to others locally and globally to build an impactful foundation for our business and team culture and create significant footprints in local and international communities in need.
We want every effort at NEXT to mean something. More than helping grow businesses, we want to help others in LIFE. The NEXT STEP Philanthropy Program is the reason we work so hard and passionately every day.
“You don’t come back from building a home in mud with your bare hands as the same person, doing the same things. I love what we do and I want our efforts to not only benefit businesses, I want to have an impact on people’s lives.” ~ Sandy Gerber
A portion of each project’s revenue is directly placed into our NEXT STEP Philanthropy Program to support others in need both locally and globally. Directly aligning to NEXT values, the NEXT STEP funds are donated to local and international organizations that are helping families and children in need. Over the years, NEXT STEP has been honored to support the following organizations:
- Bridges to Community
- Free the Children
- North Vancouver Youth Hostel Family Services Program
- North Shore Food Bank
- United Way
- Women United in Philanthropy
The NEXT team’s NEXT STEP goal is to be able to build a house together in Nepal in 2013.
