Important milestones make some take stock of what is important in life. That’s why in January, Rosendin Holdings, the umbrella for Rosendin Electric Inc. and Modular Power Solutions, created The Rosendin Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable corporation to act as the company’s charitable arm.

“We celebrated 100 years last year and people within the Rosendin umbrella have always been committed to supporting the community,” says Jolsna Thomas, President of The Rosendin Foundation and Rosendin Electric’s Business Development Manager. “Each of our groups throughout the country gives on an individual basis and we wanted to have a more collective, thoughtful purpose behind our giving. This way, we can be more strategic and make sure we’re making the most impact we can, not just on people’s pet projects but on how better we can affect the community.”

With two annual financial grant cycles up to $50,000, the foundation gives grants to community-focused non-profit organizations in states where Rosendin conducts business. Funding comes from contributions made from employees and retirees, foundation fundraisers and donations by Rosendin Holdings Inc. and its subsidiaries.

“The board wanted to do focus areas every three years to concentrate on a targeted need. Our first focus area is health – emotional, nutritional, occupational and physical. We’re looking at the whole body; with the pandemic, it’s a healthcare issue affecting us worldwide,” she says.

To date, the Foundation has given $42,500 to 17 food banks around the nation, five of which are in Texas. Then, through a donation to Construction Industry Alliance for Suicide Prevention, it focused on its industry’s emotional needs.

“It’s about how we can make the most impact and empower, not just our people, but everyone we’re connected to through the industry, and how can we inspire everyone to think about that community impact and best support our neighbors where we live and work.” Rosendin Electric is in Pflugerville. –mjm
