Balise is committed to supporting organizations that improve the quality of life in the communities we are located in. Being a good corporate citizen is important to us. We have a long record of community philanthropy and support and a philosophy of giving back to the communities in which we do business. We try to focus our support in the areas of education, health and human services, the environment and conservation, arts and culture and community and civic development. We have selected areas of focus as a method of thoughtfully channeling our resources toward our goals. Sales of quality vehicles, parts and services will help ensure our long-term success and we take seriously our role in making our communities successful as well.
The goal of our philanthropy, along with our associates' volunteer efforts, is to make a difference. Because we are unable to fund all worthy endeavors, areas of focus help us make the greatest impact where critical needs exist. All contribution requests must meet our general guidelines.
