VOLUNTEER EFFORTSThe Marcus Corporation and Marcus Hotels invests in our communities with contributions of time and leadership. Last year alone, we contributed more than 28,000 hours of volunteer time. Company executives have also helped raise millions of dollars and set strategic paths for success for several local nonprofit and civic organizations including but not limited to United Way, Variety the Children’s Charity, and the United Performing Arts Fund. In addition, Marcus Hotels & Resorts recognizes associates each year for their dedication to serve their community and make a difference in the lives of others through the Ben Marcus Humanitarian Award.
THE PINK ROOMIn 2010, three employees at the InterContinental Milwaukee wanted to do something to support the fight against breast cancer. The women came up with the idea of The Pink Room - special pink rooms, complete with pink accents throughout, themed artwork, special amenities and laptops for each guest to share their personal story. When booking one of these two special rooms, guests can "fight cancer in their sleep," as a portion of the proceeds are donated to ABCD: After Breast Cancer Diagnosis.
SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITYMarcus has a long-standing tradition of giving to its communities, a tradition we are happy to uphold to this day. We focus our support on six major areas of giving: 1) job creation and economic impact; 2) local arts and culture; 3) education; 4) health; 5) conservation and history; and 6) community development and social needs. We believe in contributing to the local economy and supporting the communities in which we work and live. In terms of economic impact, we have more than 7,200 associates nationwide and make tax contributions of more than $25 million to area economies. Our care and concern goes beyond traditional contributions. We assist organizations that are strategically aligned with our philanthropic efforts through more than $1 million worth of gift certificates each year and matching funds through programs at our local hotels and restaurants. We support associates in special ways during times of extraordinary care and need. We have facilitated creative partnerships. For example, we partner with industry Helms Briscoe to give more than $50,000 last year to HB Cares, in support of United Way, Clean the World, Childhood Leukemia Foundation and Special Olympics. The Marcus Foundation provides funding of $100,000 every two years for the Marcus Architectural Prize, in conjunction with the University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee School of Architecture and Urban Planning.
