At Polen Capital, we are committed as a team of individuals to pursuing the betterment of communities and the environment in which we work and live. We believe through corporate sponsorship and volunteerism, that we have a powerful opportunity to improve the lives of others. This belief is firmly entrenched in the core values of the firm. Through our efforts, we strive to strengthen our professional and personal partnerships with both local and nationwide social awareness initiatives. Through our involvement, it is our goal to help support, empower, and provide more opportunities for those in need.
Polen Capital has partnered with the Make-A-Wish® Southern Florida foundation since 2007. We are humbled to support children at an age far too young to have to face the challenges of illness. Fulfilling a “wish” for a child battling illness can make a meaningful difference in their lives. It is our great pleasure to have fulfilled 385+ wishes and raised impactful assets through our annual Make-A-Wish® Polen Capital Golf Tournament.
Damon Ficklin, Head of the Large Company Growth Team and Senior Executive Assistant, Jill Forgea are two of the many passionate team members who support the charity and help out with the Make-A-Wish® Polen Capital Annual Golf Tournament. It is especially meaningful for them both when Wish recipients themselves have an opportunity to become a part of the organization as ambassadors or participate in the annual tournament. We look forward to our continued partnership.
Being a part of this organization is more than just granting a wish these kids dream of. It’s seeing the transformation that a wish can bring—actually lifting their spirits and in turn, their well-being. Having the opportunity to see it all unfold brings a tremendous amount of joy.
