Our philanthropic efforts are reflected in many ways throughout the communities where we live and work. From building homes in underserved areas to mentoring in classrooms, Matrix employees understand this importance of strengthening our local economies.
Below are just a few of the ways in which we support our communities.
Habitat for Humanity
Matrix has built numerous homes for Habitat for Humanity, encouraging employees and their families to participate in this worthy cause. By teaming with another local company each year, employees are able to build a home for a deserving recipient in three months.
Each year, employees adopt angels from the Salvation Army Angel Tree so that underprivileged families can enjoy presents and groceries over the holidays. In 2015, Tulsa area employees adopted over 100 families during the holiday season. Matrix also participates in the Salvation Army’s annual food drive and women’s auxiliary fundraisers. Chief Executive Officer John Hewitt with his wife Dede served as the 2015 Chairs of the Tulsa Salvation Army benefit dinner, raising over one million dollars for this worthy cause.
Matrix supports the United Way® and their mission of living united to drive change and results around the world. The Company does this in three ways: employee paycheck pledges matched by the Company at $0.50 on the dollar, a golf tournament fundraiser and the annual Day of Caring community service project.
In 2015, Matrix donated over $287,000 to the Tulsa Area United Way, our largest contribution in history with a 30% increase from 2014. The Company matched over $60,000 to employees' donations and more than 100 employee donors committed over $500 each.
