PBE Gives Back Logo

Through charitable corporate giving, the Principle Business Fund and Associate giving, PBE is honored to give back to community causes that align with our mission of being a principle-centered business that uplifts, enlightens and enriches the lives of those we serve.

KEY GIVING INITIATIVES

The United Way, Sunshine Communities and Alzheimer’s Association are all valued giving initatives of PBE and our Associates. Every year, our teams raise funds, donate volunteer hours and participate in activies to benefit these causes.

PRINCIPLE BUSINESS FUND

Every year PBE contributes a portion of its profits to charitable endeavors through the Principle Business Fund, a Donor-Advised Fund administered by the Toledo Community Foundation.

The Principle Business Fund seeks to assist 501(c)(3) organizations with charitable, educational, scientific, literary or religious purposes with emphasis on projects or programs relating to youth education, poverty eradication, intergenerational learning programs, excellence in journalism, environmental care, agricultural development, equality for women and encouragement of entrepreneurism. Grant-funding recommendations are managed by a committee consisting of nine PBE Associates.


The Principle Business Fund is not currently accepting new applications. Sign up to be alerted when we are accepting new applications.

ELIZABETH DOLE FOUNDATION

PBE understands caring for someone in the home can lead to isolation, frustration and exhaustion. That’s why we teamed up with the Elizabeth Dole Foundation to provide relief for caregivers of at-home Veterans. The Respite Relief program provides 35 hours of free, professional care, so family caregivers can take a break to focus on themselves.

Each PBE facility has permanent wall displays honoring employees who are Veterans, and Associates are encouraged to display photos of their Veteran family members during the month of November.
