SPIRE Gives Big

SPIRE is leaning into our core action of giving back.

In April, SPIRE provided $250,000 to 187 local organizations and businesses affected by COVID-19. As organizations and businesses' needs are great while their funding base is low, SPIRE has stepped in to help.

local organizations and businesses benefited from SPIRE donations

Each of SPIRE’s 20 branches, administrative departments, senior management team, Board of Directors, and supervisory committee were asked to decide which businesses and organizations should receive donations as part of the SPIRE Gives Big initiative.  Every one of SPIRE's 300 employees helped select organizations that were important to them and their local community to receive the $250,000.
