The Alms Group launches new


The Alms Group (TAG) has introduced a new way to give back to the community.

With Nov. 15 as National Philanthropy Day, Alms unveiled a third pillar to the Alms philanthropic mission called Alms Projects.

Alms Projects are opportunities for TAG to partner with other local businesses in ways that can benefit a local school or classroom.

The desire to launch Alms Projects as an official part of the Alms program stemmed from several small projects completed in the past.

“I have always hoped that a piece of what we do would encourage others to give as well,” said Cameron Ward, managing broker of The Alms Group. “The entire concept of philanthropy works when whole communities engage together. That’s why we are so excited to partner with other businesses on projects.”

The Alms Group was able to provide yard clean-up for a local school through a partnership with Garibay Lawn Care & Landscaping, who provided labor and equipment. The Alms Group partnered with Pepsi-Cola of Manhattan to provide Pepsi recycling bins for Susan B. Anthony Middle School to support their Go Green Program, after Mr. Kent Smith had applied for a grant. Most recently, The Alms Group worked with ten different restaurants in Manhattan to provide back-to-school lunches for every teacher in the Manhattan-Ogden school district. One restaurant, The Chef, chose to donate 100% of the cost of 30 meals to Bluemont Elementary.

To kick off National Philanthropy Day, The Alms Group has started a new project with Blueville Nursery Inc. During the filming of an Alms Grant recipient video at Riley County High School, a student inquired about getting help from The Alms Group with the start-up costs for a vegetable and herb garden in the school greenhouse. The garden will be used to grow vegetables for meals for students as well as other members of the community. Blueville Nursery is providing soil, pots and seeds.
