Zoot, a leading provider of advanced instant credit decisioning and loan origination solutions, today announced that four local non-profits will be receiving unexpected year-end cash donations from the company. While Zoot provides grants throughout the year, for the past five years they have given additional unsolicited contributions to local non-profits that provide a direct and immediate impact.
The 2011 recipients of the surprise donations are the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, Gallatin Valley Food Bank, Haven and Thrive. “Zoot has weathered the economic downturn well and we feel fortunate to be able to continue our philanthropy efforts in our local community,” said Eric Lindeen, marketing director for Zoot. “Everyone likes to receive something they didn’t expect and what better time than the season of giving.”
“We are thrilled to partner with Zoot Enterprises, a company that gives so much for our community,” said Deborah Neuman, Thrive’s executive director. “This generous donation will be used to advance our mission of creating strong families and successful students. In addition to Zoot’s financial generosity, we have enjoyed a long relationship with many employees who serve as CAP mentors, giving one hour a week to help shape the lives of area students. Without community support such as this, Thrive’s work would not be possible.”
