One of the fundamental values at Parsec Financial is giving back to our community. We founded the Parsec Prize in 2005. Since that time, we have given over $1,000,000 in prizes to 66 local non-profit organizations serving Western North Carolina and Charlotte. The Parsec Prize represents approximately one-half of our annual charitable giving.
For the first time, we are expanding the Parsec Prize to a multi-year donation to one of the recipients. OnTrack Financial Education & Counseling will be the inaugural organization to receive this multiyear donation of $100,000 in total over the next four years. This is the largest commitment that Parsec Financial has ever made to one organization. We are giving an additional four Parsec Prizes of $25,000 each to four other worthy organizations.
The 2017 Parsec Prize recipients are:
- Guardian ad Litem of Buncombe County – $25,000
- OnTrack Financial Education & Counseling – $100,000 (4-year commitment)
- Our VOICE – $25,000
- United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County, Middle School Success Program – $25,000
- Western Carolina Rescue Ministries – $25,000
We thank these organizations for the value they provide to our community.
We encourage non-profit organizations to visit our website for information on applying for a Parsec Prize in 2018. The Prize will be considered for non-profits in any region where Parsec has a physical office.
