We Don’t Get Bored, We Join Boards!

When you work in advertising and marketing, often your work life becomes your social life. Client events, networking, co-worker happy hours – there’s something going on every night of the week and on weekends, particularly during season. Yet, as much time as we spend on that, we always seem to find time for our passions.

One passion we all share here at FGC, is donating our collective and individual time, treasure and talent to local charities.

In addition to the many non-profit clients that FGC works with, including Desert Cancer Foundation, Dr. Carreón Foundation, Family YMCA of the Desert, Friends of the Desert Mountains and numerous others currently and throughout the years, we also assist the efforts of various charities with our personal time and resources. Our founder, Stephanie Greene, has always supported the staff in their desire to serve and help charities since the company opened its doors in 2002.

At this time, Tricia serves as a board member and Communications Chair for Women Leaders Forum. She has been part of their organization since she moved to the desert two years ago and participated as a mentor in their Young Women Leaders program. Says Tricia, “It was fun and rewarding to mentor a young girl who was college-bound and needed guidance. Both years, the girls I mentored were the first people in their families to attend college and were very excited about that accomplishment, they just had no one to speak from experience and tell them what to expect and give them practical advice.” Tricia follows in Stephanie’s footprints, as Stephanie served on the WLF board for more than 8 years, and also chaired the event that hosted one of their first large-scale events, WLF’s Girlz Nite Out, which raised over $60,000.

Jean is no stranger to leadership roles with local organizations either. For the past year, she has served as the president of the Junior League of Palm Springs Desert Communities and has been a member for six years and served on various committees.

Over the years, FGC staff members have volunteered or served on boards and committees of many local charities, and FGC has been the agency of record for over 20 local non-profits, including those listed above and The Living Desert, McCallum Theater, Palm Springs Art Museum, La Quinta Arts Foundation, ABC Recovery Center, American Heart Association, Cabot’s Pueblo Museum, The Girlfriend Factor, AMP, and Fashion Group International of the Desert to name a few.

Maybe FG stand for Fanatical Givers. Or Forever Grateful? We change our minds daily on how to define FG Creative, but we never change our minds on helping our community.
