One of the most significant characteristics of a legacy company is charity, and Plexus® is no exception. As we strive to build our legacy, we know that service is one of the most important areas we can focus on. As One Plexus®, our employees and Ambassadors alike have the desire to give back to the global community. With that in mind, we are proud to officially announce the creation of Plexus Charities, our new 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
“We have an incredible opportunity to come together as a One Plexus family and do our part to contribute to communities around the world. We have always had a tremendous focus on giving back, and as such, I am proud to make Plexus Charities a fundamental part of our legacy in the years to come,” says CEO and Founder Tarl Robinson.
Plexus Charities’ mission is to empower people to take charge of their lives. That means supporting charities that lift people up and give them what they need to live lives full of health and happiness.
A History of Giving
In 2017 and prior years, Plexus philanthropic contributions combined into an informal charitable giving program. Charitable giving was “in-the-moment,” such as supporting Phoenix Children’s Hospital, Our Military Kids, and donating to the Salvation Army relief efforts and volunteering in Houston after Hurricane Harvey.
Nourish One Initiative™
Plexus and Plexus Charities have joined together to launch Nourish One, an initiative where a meal for you means a meal* for a hungry child or family in need.
With Nourish One, when you shake up a serving of Plexus Lean you’re also helping a child or family in need. For every serving of Plexus Lean you purchase, Plexus, through our philanthropic organization Plexus Charities, gives a contribution to Feeding America® – the nation’s largest organization dedicated to fighting domestic hunger through a network of food banks. Even better, there is no cap on the amount donated from Lean purchases. One serving = one meal. It’s that simple.
In support of this new endeavor, we were also honored to present Feeding America with a $100,000 donation on behalf of our One Plexus family. We look forward to a continued partnership with this incredible organization and thank each of our Ambassadors for their commitment to give back.
*Every bag of Plexus Lean sold contributes a donation equivalent to 14 meals to Feeding America®, providing at least 1.5 million meals annually. $1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America® on behalf of local member food banks.
