The Just Right Project
“When we donate our time and energy, we benefit from the experience as much as the community does. It’s a personal investment, as well as a financial one, and we’ve found it strengthens the bonds we share as coworkers.”
– Dan Nilsen, Founder
Bishop-McCann is dedicated to giving back to the community and its people, in any way we can. The Just Right Project is the charitable division of Bishop-McCann committed to providing just the right resources at just the right time.
Guided by Dan’s early and ongoing desire to create positive change in our community, Bishop-McCann and our associates give special attention to organizations empowering youth, fostering healthy living, and encouraging a passion for the arts. And, as proud members of Pledge 1%, we’re committed to giving at least one percent of our time, product, and profit to causes our associates care deeply about.
How we give back:
Hands-on Volunteering. At Bishop-McCann, we don’t just encourage our associates to volunteer their time – we give them time off work to do it. Every year, associates receive two full days to use whenever, however they want to give back to their community.
Whether it’s sorting canned goods at a local food bank or spreading holiday cheer at an animal shelter, Bishop-McCann wants our people to give their time to the causes they care most deeply about. In the last year, we’ve volunteered at organizations including Big Brothers Big Sisters Kansas City, the Ronald McDonald House, Harvesters International, the Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA, and more!
Giving. Beyond our time, Bishop-McCann is also committed to donating at least 1% of our profit. From local organizations like the KC Care Clinic to national causes including the MS Society, we’re giving 1% back to the community.
Additionally, we’ve partnered with Awardco, an employee recognition platform, to let our associates give directly to the causes they care about most. Employees receive cash rewards as recognition for their contributions to our company and can “spend” that cash on a variety of items, including giving directly to the charity of their choice!
Our Work. Bishop-McCann is also passionate about sharing its “product” with the community. As a meetings and event company with a global scope, we know how to throw a great party. That’s why we partner with local organizations and offer event planning services. From BBBSKC’s RISE Rooftop Crawl to the ArtsKC annual awards luncheon, our event planners’ fingers touch many of the biggest charitable events in our region.
