breiby@growyourgiving.orgCorporate Charitable Giving

With just over 50 employees, Pro Athlete, Inc., an online retailer selling baseball and softball bats and gloves, was recently named a Best Place to Work and one of Kansas City’s healthiest employers by the Kansas City Business Journal.

Boasting top-notch facilities and amenities, Pro Athlete offers an employee experience unlike any other. While the benefits and perks make for a fun workplace, it’s the company’s core values and beliefs that attract top talent. One core value, embracing stewardship, is apparent in Pro Athlete’s corporate giving programs.

Austin Hall, Director of Employee Experience at Pro Athlete, recently joined us on the Grow Your Giving podcast to discuss how Pro Athlete’s corporate giving programs play into the company’s culture of giving back. Listen in as Austin sits down with Community Foundation’s Manager of Corporate Services LaVon Colhour.

Listen to their conversation online, in the iTunes Store and on Google Play Music.
