Social Venture Partners (SVP) named Kim Morse, an account manager at ReadyTalk, as Denver’s Volunteer of the Year. SVP strengthens local non-profit organizations through targeted investments of time, expertise and money and helps partners to become better, more informed philanthropists.
Kim’s work with SVP is a great example of the importance ReadyTalk places in supporting Colorado’s communities.
ReadyTalk asks all employees to volunteer 20 hours a year and gives them the flexibility to do it during work hours. There’s also a Charitable Contributions Committee, which is a group of employees who identify and evaluate donation and volunteer opportunities with non-profit organizations. Some organizations receive an in-kind donation web and audio conferencing services, financial donations, volunteer support or other services based on need.
In 2009, ReadyTalk supported:
• Denver Rescue Mission
• Food Bank of the Rockies
• Meals on Wheels
• Community Shares
• Common Tables
• The International Alliance for Women
• Volunteers of America
• Project Homeless Connect
• Boulder Cycling Club/ Tour de Cure

Congratulations to Kim and the entire ReadyTalk team for their contributions of time and money during 2009.
