October 11, 2017– The Partners Group, a leading Northwest based financial and insurance consulting firm, is proud to announce that for the ninth consecutive year they have been awarded one of the Top Ten Corporate Philanthropists in the medium size company category (10-50M revenue) by the Portland Business Journal.
The “Corporate Philanthropy Award” recognizes companies who contribute to innovative and generous philanthropic programs throughout the year. Once a company’s volunteering hours and donations are recorded they are categorized based on company size and revenue. Ten companies are awarded in each size category, including a long list of honorees. Jake Shafer, CFO at The Partners Group stated, “It’s an honor to be recognized for this award. Giving is a part of our cultural values that we want to instill in our people and community.”
“It’s inspiring to be a part of a city, and a region, where philanthropy is such an integral core value. At The Partners Group, one of our seven key measurements of success is our sustained ability to give back to the community. This has meant so much to us, both in terms of encouraging employee volunteer activity, and by giving financial support to organizations that truly make a difference, each and every day. Congratulations to all of the winners who are being recognized this year for their philanthropic efforts, it’s a privilege to be acknowledged alongside such a community-focused and caring group of companies,” said Mike Gano, Managing Partner of the Commercial Insurance division at The Partners Group. “TPG believes in giving back to the communities that we serve as well as to organizations that provide much needed services around the globe. We encourage a culture of giving and being thankful for what has been given to us daily. To once again be honored by the Portland Business Journal with a Top Ten Corporate Philanthropy Award is a goal we set to achieve every year as a measure of our commitment to giving and enabling healthy lives and communities,” said Doreen Barnhouse, Executive Vice President of Operations at The Partners Group.
