There’s a simple reason why Prologis is one of Junior Achievement-Rocky Mountain’s (JA’s) top corporate partners – their multi-faceted approach to corporate social responsibility. Prologis has not only contributed more than $1.2 million to support JA programming during the past decade, but its employees have volunteered countless hours to bring learning to life in local schools and at JA Finance Park.
“For more than 15 years, Prologis volunteers have maintained an amazing partnership with Sable Elementary School in Aurora,” said Meg Chapman, JA manager of volunteer engagement. “This year alone, more than 75 employees have given their time and shared their experience and skills with hundreds of students. Employee support also has gone beyond JA to providing backpacks, school supplies, holiday food and coats for students in need.”
In addition to their time spent in the classroom, Prologis employees also team up to raise money and awareness for JA. In fact, Prologis professionals raised more than $105K through their 2017 JA Bowl-A-Thon. And, if that weren’t enough, Ed Nekritz, chief legal officer and general counsel for Prologis, lends his expertise and enthusiasm to JA’s board of directors and executive committee, and leads the company’s overall engagement with JA.
“The Prologis team brings tremendous value to JA, and we are extremely grateful for their long-term partnership and commitment to educating and inspiring our next generation of leaders,” said JA Executive Vice President Kristi Shaffer. ‘We absolutely could not do what we do without them!”
