In 2010, Bia Diagnostics donated time, energy, money and resources to several local and international not-for-profits, including Women Helping Battered Women, The Town of Fairfax, Vermont’s Recreation Fund, The Celiac Sprue Foundation, and Amnesty International, totaling over 400 hours and more than 20% of our profits.
Three years ago, we introduced the idea of a local running race as a fundraising event for Women Helping Battered Women. Along with several other committee members, we have worked tirelessly since that time, organizing this event, providing running clinics to the community, planning and implementing every aspect of the race from course planning to registration to timing, results, great prizes and food. Over the course of the past three years, nearly 600 people have participated in this event, running, walking, raising money and volunteering, bringing in over $28,000 to Women Helping Battered Women. In addition to the time commitment, Bia Diagnostics is also a major financial sponsor of this event.
Additionally, Bia Diagnostics employees donate their time and resources to Women Helping Battered Women at their Phone-A-Thon, purchasing Christmas gifts for children whose lives have been touched by domestic violence, arranging benefit concerts, and serving on the board. Employees are encouraged to use paid time to serve and flex their job responsibilities.
Bia Diagnostics also organizes a road race annually for Amnesty International and donates time, expertise and funds to the Egg Run in Fairfax, Vermont.
In addition to social responsibility, we are committed to providing a work environment that contributes to employee satisfaction, well-being and growth.
