Bonita Springs, FL – When CSI Enterprises was founded in 1989, it was built with a core belief that true success would not be measured by profits alone, but also by giving back. Nearly 25 years later, the fast growing company remains keenly aware of the human needs and misfortunes around it, and a culture of giving remains central to its operations.
“It is rewarding to see our employees reaching out when they see a need – not only through the course of business, but also in their personal lives,” said Keith Stone, President and CEO of CSI Enterprises. “Helping others can change who we are as individuals as well as the purpose of our company at times. The rewards for all involved can be transformational.”
A spirit of giving flows through the company’s employees who freely volunteer time and resources to Habitat for Humanity, Wounded Warriors and other service organizations throughout the community. Among the benefactors of CSI’s generosity is Barbara’s Friends, an organization committed to providing resources and assistance to pediatric oncology and hematology patients at the Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida.
“Many of our colleagues have lost loved ones to cancer,” shared Juliann Press, one of CSI’s charity committee chairs. “Barbara’s Friends is an opportunity for us to share our experiences, knowledge and compassion to make a positive impact on children in our community who are battling this disease.”
“This culture of giving is not only powerful from an altruistic viewpoint, it’s also good for business,” said Liane Sanson, VP of Partner Programs. “Knowing that we have made a child smile, or somehow lessened the burdens for a family, is a reward that transcends right back into our work day and fuels our desire to succeed.”
