Giving Back: A Look Inside the Weaver Private Foundation - The STB Foundation

The Weaver Private Foundation is dedicated to creating a relationship between our employees and the communities in which we work and live. We encourage a workplace culture of outreach, and one of the Foundation’s goals is to support Weaver employees in their personal volunteer efforts. So, twice a year, we give our employees the opportunity to apply for contributions to an organization they’re involved with. In Spring 2017, the Foundation donated $20,500 to 12 different organizations in support of our employees and their community involvement efforts. Below we highlight one of these organizations, The STB Foundation.   

The STB Foundation – Fort Worth, TX

Nominated by Meagan Seay

The STB Foundation is an organization committed to assisting people in the community undergoing cancer treatments with daily expenses including copays, medical bills and prescriptions. In addition to financial assistance, The STB Foundation also offers help with daily needs: lawn services, house cleaning, cooking, hospital visits, grocery shopping, transportation services and more. As a fairly new organization, STB has been fortunate to receive outstanding support from the community through volunteer services and donations and hopes to reach even more living in the local community in 2017.

Megan Seay, Accounts Payable Clerk in Finance and Director of Communications for The STB Foundation, explains how she started The STB Foundation in 2016 with two of her closest friends. “With both my mother and a close friend going through treatments for cancer, we saw a need for a foundation that focused on people’s immediate necessities rather than finding a cure. There are so many people in our community dealing with this disease that have no insurance, no savings and no assistance while they fight. We want to be there for them. While we are so grateful to the foundations that provide funding for research, we wanted to offer something different. Our hope is that we can alleviate some of the day-to-day pressures so that people can focus on their health.”
