Saint Louis, Missouri-Facilisgroup (PPAI 493664), a software-as-a-service company and partnering community within the promotional products industry, left its mark on Nashville, Tennessee—the site of its recent Partner Summit—in the form of a $12,320 donation split between two organizations dedicated to helping youth in the community, Gabe’s Chemo Duck Program and United Way of Greater Nashville’s Stuff the Bus Program.

As part of its Facilis Cares initiative, Facilisgroup is committed to making a positive impact on any community it visits. The recent Partner Summit in Nashville proved to be the first opportunity for Facilisgroup to make such an impact in more than 18 months.

“Our community has always been second to none,” says Ashley McCune, president of Facilisgroup. “But when our distributor and supplier partners come together for a greater purpose, it’s truly inspiring. We’re harnessing the power of our amazing community to make a difference in people’s lives, and it’s so uplifting to see.”

The two organizations benefiting from the initiative are both dedicated to children in the Nashville community. Gabe’s Chemo Duck Program supports children and families living with cancer, while the United Way of Greater Nashville’s Stuff the Bus Program provides essential school supplies to students in need. Facilisgroup offered a donation match to what was contributed by their partner community, leading to a final donation amount of $12,320.

“We said we wanted to leave Nashville just a little bit better than we found it. The generosity of our community absolutely made that a reality,” adds McCune.
