Klinedinst is proud to be supporting the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation during the 2014 holiday season. Since 2010, the firm has been a National Corporate Donor, making donations to the program on behalf of its clients and employees. Funds raised by Toys for Tots provide toys, books, and holiday presents for millions of children whose parents may be ill or struggling financially.
“2014 marks our fifth straight year of supporting Toys for Tots, on behalf of our clients and employees” noted John D. Klinedinst, CEO and Founder of Klinedinst. “This program fills such an important role, delivering presents and books to children who may not have much to celebrate this holiday season. When it comes to holiday cheer, no one delivers it better than the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation”
Since 1947, Toys for Tots has distributed over 470 million toys to over 220 million children across the country. A top-rated charity, 97% of every donation made to Toys for Tots goes directly to the purchase of toys, books, and other gifts. Only 3% is spent on fundraising expenses, and no funds donated go to pay for salaries or other manpower costs. This ratio earned the Foundation a ranking of #77 in the 2013 Philanthropy 400, published by the Chronicle of Philanthropy. Marine Toys for Tots is also an accredited charity by meeting all 20 Standards of the Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance.
“We are pleased that Klinedinst has re-enlisted as a national corporate donor of the Marine Toys for Tots Campaign,” said retired Marine Major Bill Grein, Vice President of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. “Through the support of Klinedinst and other national donors, we are gearing up to bring joy this holiday season to nearly 7 million kids whose parents may be ill or struggling financially. We are truly thankful for all of the support.”
