FACS was founded on the principles of giving back and supporting our surrounding communities. In line with those principles, our founder, Dave Kahane, has a well-defined program for supporting employee’s who are passionate about causes that they believe in – Dave’s Direct Giving (or “D3”) – which provides ten $2,500 awards to various non-profits annually. This way of thinking is pervasive throughout the company, as our staff is given two paid days off per year to support causes that are dear to their hearts.
We work to protect public health and to create safe spaces for living, work, and play. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
