At Trilix, we’ve long prided ourselves on our ability to tell clients’ stories. Every organization we work with has a passion that drives them each day to innovate and better serve their customers.
On Giving Tuesday, we want to focus on sharing the stories of some of our clients in the nonprofit and social service industries who go above and beyond to serve their own clients. Giving Tuesday, which takes place on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, is described as a global movement to inspire generosity and encourage people to do good.
“We believe our ability to share dynamic client stories sets our work apart,” said Brett Adams, chief marketing officer for Trilix. “The nonprofit and social services sector can bring unique challenges and triumphs, and we want to help highlight these dedicated organizations and their missions.”
Trilix understands that our communities improve when we all participate in making them stronger.Ron Maahs, CEO at Trilix
Ron Maahs, Trilix CEO, added his thoughts about the importance of supporting the nonprofit sector. “Trilix understands that our communities improve when we all participate in making them stronger. In fact, Trilix even has a philanthropy committee for employees to consider supporting local nonprofits and social services in addition to our work. Join us in supporting organizations whose missions speak to you.”
Here are just some of the nonprofit and social services clients we support through our work throughout the year, and we believe they’re more than worthy of recognition during the giving season.
