Bridge Capital gives $1K to IFC, challenges others to follow suit
March 9, 2010
Bridge Capital LLC recently donated $1,000 to the Independent Football Club of Koblerville and promises to donate more to the association.
Bridge Capital principal and CEO John K. Baldwin dared other companies to do the same, saying his company will make an additional matching donation of up to a total of $1,000 for donations received from the general business community.
“Bridge Capital is a strong supporter of the development of youth sports on the island and believes these type of activities are a key to developing teamwork, promoting physical activity and good health, and fostering community spirit and a sense of pride in CNMI's youth,” said the company in a statement issued yesterday.
IFC has earmarked the donations to pay for registration and equipment costs for the upcoming 2010 NMIFA Youth Football seasons.
“Most of the kids that join our club cannot afford the shoes, shin guards, socks, and registration fees; this is why we approached Bridge Capital about sponsorship. This donation will help pay for two seasons of soccer for at least 40 children from the south side of the island,” said IFC president Glenn Smith.
Bridge Capital, LLC is an international investment banking and asset management company located in the CNMI.
The company is involved in a wide range of community activities and makes significant contributions to non-profits and charitable organizations serving the islands. Bridge Capital is committed to being a good corporate citizen and a partner in making the CNMI the best it can be. (PR)
