Celebrating Companies that Pledge

Every company that signs the Pledge will be recognized and have the opportunity to share their stories of caring.

SignatureFD, LLC

At SignatureFD, our goal is to help our clients make an impact with their wealth, which we believe extends beyond their financial resources to include their time, relationships, skills, and influence. One way that each of us can have an impact on our wealth is through our generosity.  As a trusted advisor we are in a unique position to encourage those we serve to be intentional with their generosity.  We believe that having a plan for their generosity will result in greater impact on those they give to, but also that they will be personally impacted as well.

Pet Plantation

In Middle and South Georgia, a love for animals has traditionally meant caring for animals on a farm or feeding the family pet.

But Paul Boyer and his wife Pamela have set a new standard for giving animals dignity in their Warner Robins community. Since opening Pet Plantation and Crematory in 2003, the Boyers have operated with a belief that “pets deserve the same dignity humans do because they have served us.”

Balentine

Much of Balentine’s community impact has focused on improving the lives of impoverished children or those from low-income homes. Chairman Robert Balentine likes to say that the culture of giving back to the community starts at the top. Employees get monthly briefings on potential volunteer projects so they know where to direct their time and talent.
