We believing in giving back, not only to the communities we each call home, but to the larger global community we belong to. We support many charitable causes and pledge to match contributions to causes our employees are personally involved with. These are just a few of the important organizations we support.
Through Elk River, MN-based Mission Rwanda, Tartan Marketing sponsors 10 children in Karaba, Rwanda, an area of Africa ravaged by AIDS. Each sponsorship brings the child’s entire family sustainable access to fundamental necessities like food, clean water, healthcare and education. This community-to-community approach linking Elk River to Karaba has resulted in the sponsorship of nearly 600 children and construction of numerous schools.
Food Drive Challenge
The Minneapolis-based Food Drive Challenge started as a single act of giving, and has morphed into a nationwide charitable event. Tartan owners and staff contributed time and creative resources to “making the drive thrive” and helped promote it to other businesses in the community. By empowering individual companies with tools and support to host their own successful food drives, the food drive challenge drew 1,100 participants and raised more than 39,000 pounds of food in 2010.
Hennepin Theater Trust
The Hennepin Theater Trust is a non-profit organization devoted to enriching the cultural atmosphere of the Twin Cities. Our ongoing support helps sustain our community’s vibrant culture and bring theater and performances to more than 500,000 people each year. The creative arts are a vital part of our corporate culture at Tartan, and we are proud to support an organization dedicated to preserving this creative spirit.
