Mandeville Soccer Club:
Netchex has committed to the Mandeville Soccer Club as the primary sponsor for more than three years. The wonderful relationship has helped thousands of local children build character and learn valuable life lessons through soccer. Netchex’s contributions since becoming the primary sponsor in 2010 keep registration fees low, allow the organization to recruit top talent for its staff and provide scholarships to kids in need.
The Mandeville Soccer Club trains and develops more than 2,500 local children each year in soccer, making the organization a perfect match for Netchex’s ongoing mission to reinvest into the neighborhood in which it thrives. Our founders are particularly passionate about helping children and youths.
“We couldn’t exist without Netchex,” said Mandeville Soccer Organization Director Shane Jeanfreau. “We were named one of the top clubs in the state because of the quality we’ve been able to establish over the past couple of years, and Netchex has been a big part of that.”
Netchex’s commitment to kids continues with our support of the Fostering Angels program, an amazing non-profit that focuses on helping local foster children build character and learn acceptance, commitment and fitness through sports and extracurricular activities. The costs of team sports and clubs can add up quickly, and that’s where Netchex and Fostering Angels steps in to provide valuable funds.
Netchex has supported the organization’s main fundraiser, the Holiday Classic Tennis Tournament, since its inception, and pledged to be the title sponsor for 2012. The tournament pulls in thousands of dollars, making it an essential event to helping the charity continue its vision.
“We pride ourselves in dedicating resources that aid in the youth of our community, and Fostering Angels is at the top of this list,” said Netchex CEO Will Boudreaux. “Jen Thompson and her team aim to support the hundreds of foster children who do not have access to the activities most children have. That’s not only critical to the children, but also to the loving parents that care for these kids. We appreciate the work done in our community Fostering Angels and are proud to provide our assistance.”
American Heart Association Heart Walk:
Netchex contributed nearly $10,000 to the American Heart Association in 2012, helping this great organization to surpass its yearly fundraising goal. This huge feat was accomplished through our high-level sponsorship of the association’s annual Heart Walk, and through the extremely generous donations of Netchex employees and their loved ones.
Funds raised through the Heart Walk go toward putting up-to-the-minute research into the doctors’ hands, so they can better prevent and treat heart disease among patients. It also helps fund groundbreaking pediatric heart and stroke research, and helps getting life-saving information to those who need it most – information that can save a life.
This is a cause near and dear to everyone at Netchex, where the company culture promotes a strong focus on fitness. Through running clubs, weight-loss challenges and the leadership of our own fitness cheerleader, Will Boudreaux, Netchex and its employees are committed to healthy living.
