Charity, which is known as our “4th C.” Our Founder believed strongly in the principle, “Love your neighbor.” That belief was demonstrated in his pattern of giving generously to various charitable and community organizations, causes, and events. Further, it was demonstrated by his selflessly arranging that the ownership of FTI would transfer fully into the hands of FTI employees after he was gone. FTI strives to encourage and support our employees to develop and maintain a spirit of charity by volunteering their time, attention, efforts, and resources to any of a wide range of charitable or community outreach activities. We encourage this by supporting our employees’ efforts with financial and other resources. Employees are encouraged to make recommendations for FTI to provide charitable contributions. Each recommendation is reviewed and processed by an all-volunteer committee of employees, the “4th C Committee,” that operates under a Charter, authorized by corporate policy. The highest priority for receiving FTI funding is events or activities that involve multiple employees who demonstrate their own passion by donating their time and other resources.
