At the start of 2018, Baseline’s 20th anniversary, our team was surveyed to gauge our level of community outreach interest — and we were blown away. The interest levels spanned a wide gamut with varying levels of engagement and projects for participation. In fact, there was so much interest that a new committee was formed, Baseline for Community, or B4C, with members throughout all company office locations.
B4C Outreach Efforts
Through B4C, Baseline has made a concerted effort to make a difference to the communities where we live, work, and play. From our annual food drive to our angel tree program to our various sponsorships and service efforts, Baseline is committed to help our neighbors. A few of our programs are listed here as well as our community partners.
One of Baseline’s programs is an annual scholarship for engineering students at Colorado State University. Our CEO, is a CSU graduate as well as many of our staff, and we are committed to helping other students achieve their educational goals.
Part of our vision at Baseline is to support our communities. During the pandemic, our communities suffered in many ways and Baseline donated $5,000 to give to COVID-19-related causes in our local communities. Here’s how we shared the funds.
- Golden – The Golden team selected local restaurants and their workers. With the pandemic, the restaurant industry has been hit very hard and Baseline purchased gift cards for each employee at four local favorite restaurants to purchase gas or groceries – Abrusci’s, Cast Iron Tavern, Big Daddy Bagels, and Los Marcelos.
- Loveland – The Loveland team selected Poudre Valley Hospital in Ft. Collins and Medical Center of the Rockies in Loveland to receive their donation. They scheduled a Divine Ice Cream Truck at both hospitals to feed medical staff, doctors, and nurses as much ice cream as they could eat to thank them for their hard work, dedication, and service to their communities.
- Colorado Springs – The Colorado Springs team selected three clients that we have done business with who had also been impacted by the pandemic: The Viewhouse Restaurant, Wildwood Hotel, and Fillmore West Retail Development.
- Steamboat Springs – The Steamboat team selected Snow Bowl. This restaurant/bowling alley, teamed up to other local community members to provide to-go meals to feed families in need in the Steamboat Springs Community.
