North Star Named a Finalist of the 2016 Community Impact Awards

CIA_LOGO_webresolutionupdated.pngMINNEAPOLIS, MN—North Star Resource Group has been announced as a Finalist of Minnesota Business Magazine’s 2016 Community Impact Awards in the ‘Best in Class: Midsize Company’ category.

The Community Impact Awards recognize Minnesota-based companies in the private sector who aim to benefit their surrounding communities. The ‘Best in Class: Midsize Company’ category, in which North Star is one of three Finalists, recognizes companies of 51 to 250 employees for “overall excellence in positively impacting Minnesota communities.”

North Star is honored to be recognized as a Finalist for an Award honoring so many outstanding Minnesota companies and initiatives. Much of North Star’s community involvement stems from the Scott Richards North Star Charitable Foundation, North Star’s 501(c)(3) foundation established in 2004. The SRNSCF primarily benefits six causes both financially and through volunteerism: Alzheimer’s disease, Ataxia, Bikes for Kids, Breast Cancer, Cystic Fibrosis and Myelofibrosis. North Star annually gives 10% of profits to the foundation and to date, has contributed over $2 million total to the SRNSCF since 2004. To support volunteerism among all advisors and team members, North Star also offers 8 hours of paid Volunteer Time Off (VTO) annually and additionally offers a matching gift program.

Winners of the Community Impact Awards will be announced at a ceremony in Minneapolis on February 26, 2016, honoring all Finalists as well. For more on the details of the Awards as well as the judging process, read Minnesota Business Magazine's press release here.
