República Invites Nonprofits to Apply for its Third Annual ‘Repúblicares’ Pro Bono Initiative

Last year, Triumph Crisis Recovery Center (TCRC), a South Florida-based organization supporting victims of domestic violence, was selected from the more than 30 submissions received. In 2012, Strong Women, Strong Girls, a Boston-based nonprofit dedicated to raising the aspirations of elementary-school girls, college women, and young professionals, was selected as the inaugural recipient.

“Giving back has been inherent in our culture since day one,” said Luis Casamayor, president & CCO of República. “Repúblicares is a terrific way of bringing together our growing República family as each employee has a voice in selecting the recipient,” added Casamayor.

Since its inception, República has provided pro bono services to numerous local and national nonprofits and community initiatives, including St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, The WOW Center, City Year, the International Hispanic Theatre Festival/Teatro Avante, Miami Dade College Foundation, and Amigos For Kids.
