Since Backstop was founded in 2003, we’ve been very fortunate to grow from a small start-up in Chicago to a company with more than 250 team members and 5 offices worldwide. As we continue to prosper as a company, it’s important that we take a step back and look at how we can not only make an impact in our industry, but also give back to the communities in which we work.
It is the mission of the Backstop Foundation to support the health, education and welfare of children in the communities in which we operate. The Backstop Foundation will give annual donations to benefit organizations that support this mission. We will aim to give 40 percent of the funds to industry-related charities, 40 percent to education-related charities and the remaining 20 percent is to be donated at the advisory board’s discretion based on employee feedback.
