CSI Gives Back becomes an official nonprofit organization

After more than 13 years of supporting local charities, The CSI Companies charitable giving division, CSI Gives Back, was granted official nonprofit status.

“We have a role beyond providing jobs and supporting our clients, and it’s to help out in the communities we live,” said Chris Flakus, Chief Operating Officer of The CSI Companies. “And now with our newly established official nonprofit status we can accomplish so much more.”

The organization also raised more than 13,000 dollar at its seventh annual charity auction benefitting Dreams Come True, a wish-granting organization dedicated to using the power of a dream to bring hope and joy to children battling a life threatening illness.
