Chrysler, an American automobile manufacturer based in Auburn Hills, gives donations and contributions to charities.
It is the automaker’s way of giving back to the communities what it has now.
It is registered that Chrysler gained a large profit in 2012 and exceeded what it gained in 2011.
It shared its profits to its workers by either giving them performance bonuses or profit share checks.
Chrysler Partners with Local Charities
Before the automaker earned a good profit in 2012, it partnered with several charities such as Detroit Urban League, Boys and Girls Clubs Southeastern Michigan, and Latin Americans for Social and Economic Development Inc. The automaker gave tickets for the super bowl to all people living in Detroit. It is Chrysler’s way of showing its commitment and gratitude to its consumers. Recipients of the tickets used these to enjoy and relax with their family and friends.
Recently, Chrysler made a donation to victims of the flood that affected residents from Colorado. It donated a total amount of $50,000 to affected residents through the efforts of its philanthropic outlet, the Chrysler Group LLC. Its primary beneficiary is the charitable organization, First Response Team of America. The organization, on the other hand, was the one in charge of distributing the goods.
Also, owners of Chrysler vehicles are given the chance to donate to charitable institutions and organizations. The first thing that owners should do is pick the non-profit charity to benefit from the donation. The automaker has a list of charities that owners can choose so they can pick any from the list and when done with that, experts assigned will complete the process. One thing is for sure here, you will be provided with the highest deduction for tax so the charities will get the most out of it.
Chrysler Gives Donations Despite Challenges
The automaker is a generous company just like Ford. Both automakers continued giving donations and philanthropic grants despite their struggles. Chrysler declared bankruptcy and sought help from their parent company–Fiat. They worked together to produce a product that would display their strong features. The vehicle produced would be a great help to Chrysler most especially when it comes to its sales output. The merger of the two automakers brought lots of growth opportunities aside from their sales improvement. This is being affirmed by Sergio Marchionne, the chief executive officer (CEO) of Chrysler.
All of the goodness of Chrysler was paid back with the large profit it earned last 2012. The profit amounted to $1.7 billion and it was bigger than what they’ve originally expected. Marchionne cited that everything became possible because of the efforts of the leaders and workers that shared integrity and humble spirit. It was considered a remarkable turnaround to the automaker’s history for it filed bankruptcy in 2009 and managed to get up. The leaders wanted more for the automaker so it encourages their workers to cooperate and work together.
The automaker has a long history of giving donations to the needed people. It plans to continue what it had started despite the challenges that it may encounter.
