In Our Hands: Corporate Social Responsibility | Avista

Soon after I was hired, Jeff Taverna, one of Avista's founding partners, asked me to be accountable for our company's participation in an annual fundraiser for the MS Society hosted by one of our partners.
The golf event was an opportunity to raise money for an important nonprofit, and also a day of networking. Avista had participated in previous years, but Jeff wanted us to up our game. As we prepared for that event, he shared with me his vision of our team volunteering together. Our office was in a building that hosted blood drives twice a year with the Red Cross, and he wanted us to be involved. When he heard about my story as a bone marrow transplant recipient, he spoke of a friend who had also had leukemia and of how highly he thought of Be the Match - the organization that matched me with my donor five years ago. Later that spring, when I told him I would be walking in the Be the Match Walk+Run, he asked if Avista could join me and said he would like our company to make a contribution to the organization. When Jeff left to start a new company, Optimize Communications Services, Rob stepped in as the primary champion for our developing CSR program.
