Jacksonville Marine has presented Safe Animal Shelter of Clay County with a $25,000 donation

The Bill & Kristin Fenech Foundation, established by Barletta Pontoon Boat owner Bill Fenech, offered to donate one percent of Jacksonville Marine’s model year 2021 wholesale shipments with Jacksonville Marine matching at least 10 percent of the pledged amount. The Foundation provided $22,350 and Jacksonville Marine donated $2,650 to bring the total donation to $25,000.

“We are grateful to partner with the Fenech Foundation and Barletta Pontoons to give back to our community,” said Gardner. “I have always been blown away by Bill Fenech’s generosity to his employees and business partners and this charitable giving offer is just another example of that generosity. We are thankful to them for helping us support our local shelter.”

Gardner and Smith chose the no-kill animal shelter because of their and Barletta’s mutual love of animals. They all believe animals are a part of the family and every customer who buys a Barletta Pontoon Boat also receives a dog dish with their purchase.

The Bill & Kristin Fenech Foundation was established to provide charitable funding on behalf of Barletta Pontoon Boats, a provider of boats sold by Jacksonville Marine.

The Foundation offered to partner on charitable donations as a way to help its dealerships around the country give back to their communities. Its total impact in communities across the country in 2021 is expected to exceed $2 million.

Buckle Closes $60M in Funding to Expand Full-Stack Insurance Platform across US

The successful raise underscores Buckle’s stated goal to reimagine financial services for the gig economy. The capital will help the Company scale its pioneering, full-stack insurance-as-a-service platform as Buckle continues to spearhead innovative financial products for the rising middle class across the U.S.

The Company’s core hybrid auto insurance policy for rideshare and delivery drivers uses data from Transportation Network Company (TNC) platforms to underwrite policies. By using rideshare and delivery data instead of credit scores, Buckle’s core, hybrid auto insurance policy helps close the gap created by conventional insurance policies that leave gig workers underinsured or with higher premiums.

“This new raise helps validate Buckle’s positive momentum across its insurance programs and reinforces our belief in the opportunity for growth the Company faces today,” said Marty Young, co-founder and CEO of Buckle. “Through our capital efficient, multi-carrier strategy, we’re expanding our digital insurance platform nationwide so that we can offer a range of attractive insurance options to U.S. gig economy workers, many of whom have been considered essential workers throughout the pandemic.”

Buckle also acquired and recapitalized three admitted insurance carriers, Gateway Insurance Company, American Service Insurance Company, and American Country Insurance Company. Through its multi-carrier insurance platform and strategic MGA partnerships, Buckle expanded insurance products for gig workers to include traditional taxi, limousine, rideshare fleets, and non-standard personal auto.

“The pandemic has shown the essential value that gig workers contribute to the broader economy,” said Manny Citron, managing partner at Volery. “The gig ecosystem is growing rapidly but requires innovative and inclusive financial services to address the needs of this dynamic workforce. We support Buckle’s efforts to reimagine insurance, credit and other financial products for this growing, yet underserved market. We are excited to be part of the journey.”

In addition to launching additional insurance products and partnerships, Buckle has recently introduced an auto financing product to its Members in Georgia with plans to expand credit to other states soon.

The Dr. Reddy Family Foundation: An Over View of a Charitable Cause

The Dr. Prem Reddy Family Foundation has been involved with numerous community-based activities since its inception in 1986. It began life as the Desert Valley Charitable foundation soon after the establishment of the Desert Valley Hospital. Since then, it has been funding free clinics and quality care delivery for people unable to afford it.

What distinguishes the Dr. Prem Reddy family foundation is its unified vision of impacting healthcare with quality treatment at one end of the spectrum and support for medical education at the other. Dr. Prem Reddy has always been a passionate advocate of learning and education, and through the foundation, he has managed to breathe life into his vision for greater learning in medicine.

Unlocking the Potential of Quality Education

The Dr. Prem Reddy Family Foundation offers a prestigious scholarship program to aid students of the High Desert area of Southern California to pursue careers in medical science. The scholarship program is also open to the Inland Empire students enrolled in educational programs that lead to a career in healthcare. The Dr. Prem Reddy Family Foundation has funded over $1 million to aspirants since its inception in 1994. The foundation awards to close to 60 students enrolled in educational programs that lead to a career in healthcare.

Propagating Knowledge

The Dr. Reddy Family foundation runs state-of-the-art public health libraries comprising medical journals, textbooks, video libraries, and more. These libraries are avant-garde facilities designed to nurture the mind of thinkers. Students from various community colleges are free to visit the library and pursue their interests and academic requirements. The libraries under the Dr. Prem Reddy Family foundation also arrange student tours to help students garner valuable insights that enhance their understanding of the US healthcare industry.

Community Service

The foundation has been involved in a wide variety of simple but vital tasks that make a world of difference in people’s lives. Clean water initiatives, vaccination programs, the establishment of clinics, and health check-up workshops are some of them. Besides local and state-wide initiatives, the foundation has also made its presence felt globally with medical missions to treat cataracts, pediatric diseases, and the delivery of medicines. The foundation has been active in over 30+ countries in Africa, Asia, and North America.

The foundation supports diverse charitable causes such as ‘Access to Healthcare in Nevada’. Such non-profit medical programs provide protective medical coverage for the working class segments in specific areas of the United States.

The Prime Healthcare Foundation

Like the Dr. Prem Reddy Family Foundation, the Prime Healthcare Foundation is another charitable organization involved with community activities. Despite being a separate entity, it deserves a mention to express just how prosperous Dr. Reddy’s vision for society is.

The Prime Healthcare Foundation is fuelled by over $1billion in assets, mostly donated by Dr. Reddy and his family. It was conceptualized in 2001 and has grown exponentially since then, just like Prime Healthcare to become a core component of the California community.

The Prime Healthcare Foundation has been recognized by healthcare data research entities such as IBM Watson Health and The Leapfrog Group for its enterprising community activities

Charitable Partnerships

The Dr. Prem Reddy Family Foundation has many strategic partners with specialized charitable organizations. These partnerships were conceived to uplift the community of the High Desert and Inland Empire regions. Among the notable names recognized worldwide, the foundation has joined hands with Make a wish, Samaritan’s Purse, and Northern Nevada Hopes, to name a few.

Dr. Reddy’s vision for business and charity is commensurate, making him an inspiration for budding entrepreneurs and medical professionals. The Dr. Reddy Family Foundation is an embodiment of the heart doctor’s commitment to his community.
