Congratulations 2020 Parsec Prize Winners!

This year’s unrestricted grants totaling $200,000 help support those working diligently and effectively to prioritize educational and literacy needs amidst the pandemic. Parsec chose 15 awardees to commemorate the 15th year of the Parsec Prize. 

“We wouldn’t be where we are today without a big investment in education, so we are honored to celebrate our 40th anniversary by focusing this year’s Parsec Prize grants on supporting educational and literacy programs in the communities in which we serve,” Parsec CEO Rick Manske said. “Below is a sampling of their inspirational work that we are so honored to support.”

One of the fundamental values at Parsec Financial is giving back to the communities in which we serve. We have long maintained a significant commitment to charitable giving and this core value is why we established the Parsec Prize in 2005.

The Parsec Prize is designed to help local non-profits further their missions and help improve the lives of those served in our communities. Since 2005, Parsec has awarded more than $1.5 million in Parsec Prize grants to 84 local non-profits. The Parsec Prize represents approximately one-half of Parsec’s annual charitable giving.  

Each year, as we review Parsec Prize candidates, we are reminded in powerful ways of the invaluable work by our area nonprofit organizations. Their work is honorable and they service critical missions. Many of these entities are quiet champions, advocating for people in difficult circumstances. We are honored to know them and contribute to their success.

NOTE: Information about our 2021 grant cycle will be announced Oct. 1, 2020. Please come back to this page after that date for more information.
