MILLERSVILLE, Md., Sept. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Vacation accommodations provider Travel Advantage Network has preserved their culture of charitable giving by continuing their widely successful monthly charity program in 2016. The program, which has been running continuously since 2002, empowers employees to select a charity on a monthly basis and lead efforts to raise funds for their chosen organization. The program raised a record $15,142 in donations in 2015 alone and has raised over $12,000 as of August of this year.
"Corporate giving should be a staple in the business world," said Brad Callahan, Owner and Chief Executive Officer. "With so many outstanding causes and charities out there, it didn't seem right to focus our corporate efforts to a select few. Instead, we have made an impact on well over 100 charities since our program was initiated."
Fundraising efforts for 2016 have benefited the 100 Club of Anne Arundel County, Mended Little Hearts of Greater Baltimore, Almost Heaven Rescue and Sanctuary, Success in Style and the Lupus Foundation.
Travel Advantage Network's unique program is designed to not only give back to the community but also foster a corporate culture of giving. At the beginning of each month, a Travel Advantage Network employee selects a charity of their choice and then spearheads company-wide fundraising efforts for the charity throughout the month.
By providing the funding and structure necessary but encouraging employees to take the lead on all events, owner Brad Callahan has developed an opportunity to develop lifelong passions for charitable giving among the employees at Travel Advantage Network.
Since 1992, Travel Advantage Network, a vacation accommodations program, has helped families and individuals create lifelong vacation memories. Travel Advantage Network is the proud recipient of the Better Business Bureau of Maryland's prestigious Torch Award for exemplifying high business standards and professional integrity, as well as the Maryland Chamber of Commerce's Philanthropy in Business Award for outstanding and innovative commitment to local and national charities. Travel Advantage Network is a recipient of SmartCEO Magazine's 2008 and 2009 Future 50 Award, recognizing the fastest growing companies in the greater Baltimore area.
