On January 30, 2020 Klaus Lubbe and Kate Bessette were recognized for a generous contribution from Bio X Cell’s employee-driven Charitable Fund to Hartford Parks & Recreation.

 

Upping the ante

The Bio X Cell Charitable Fund was originated as an employee-driven philanthropy fund with a mission to give back to our community. In December, the Bio X Cell fund committed to a 2:1 match of all employees’ donations for the remainder of 2019. As a result of this increased match, the Bio X Cell team had extra incentive to support 501(c)(3) organizations they believe in. Thank you letters are still pouring in due to the uptick in donations made during the 2:1 match!

 

 

“Hartford Parks & Recreation is extremely grateful to Kate for contributing to the scholarship program and her work with Bio X Cell and the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation to secure this remarkable donation. Through their efforts, we look forward to providing additional need-based scholarships for recreation programs, camps, and special activities here in the community.”

Hartford Parks & Recreation’s mission is to serve the recreational needs of the community by offering lifelong learning through recreational and educational programming utilizing existing parks and facilities.

 

Making a difference

We are a team driven by the idea of giving back to our community and bettering the lives of those in need around us. Making a difference in our community gives us greater meaning in the work that we do at Bio X Cell and fulfills us as individuals. 2019 marks the initiation of The Bio X Cell Fund, which is an employee-driven philanthropy fund coordinated through the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. The focus of the fund is to make the world a better place by supporting organizations that address mental and physical health, the environment, arts, and culture and provide humanitarian support including disaster relief. For 2019 we have dedicated $250,000 to this fund.”
