The Hignell Companies launch Foundation

Morrison client The Hignell Companies has announced creation of The Hignell Companies Foundation, starting with two funds: The Employee Care Fund and the Community Impact Fund. These funds closely align with Hignell’s corporate mission: “Creating Caring Communities that Transform Lives.” They start with their employees and seek to build opportunities within their managed communities and the community at large.

According to Alexa Benson-Valavanis, CEO, North Valley Community Foundation, “The Hignell Companies are leading the way in corporate giving. They are known for their generosity in the community and this step forward gives a clear message to potential recipients what matters most to them and the process by which decisions can be made. The initiation of an Employee Care Fund sends a strong message to their team that the company wants to be there for their needs too.”

For more information on the Hignell Companies Foundation, contact Laura Cootsona at NVCF at or 530.518.7751 or Tina Rosenquist with The Hignell Companies at 530.894.0404 ext.112.
