CJRW gives back through annual employee-directed philanthropic program


LITTLE ROCK (November 15, 2022) – For the second year, CJRW is making charitable donations to non-profit organizations throughout Arkansas as part of its CJRW Cares giving program.

The employee-directed program allocates $600 for each employee to select an organization to receive the funds. This year, 48 Arkansas non-profits received funds. The total investment for 2022 is $34,200.

“We love the state of Arkansas and hope that these contributions will help these organizations better serve Arkansans,” said Jill Joslin, president of CJRW. “Every gift made through the CJRW Cares program is important because the funds go to a non-profit that a member of our employee-owned company personally supports and cares about.”

Organizations from Maynard to Pine Bluff, and Clarksville to Helena will be helped by the donations.

Coupled with the agency’s Explore Arkansas program, which reimburses employees up to $500 annually to vacation in Arkansas and supports the state’s tourism industry, CJRW will invest a total of $63,000 in 2022.
