Springfield-based Digital Monitoring Products Inc. hit a fundraising target four years ahead of schedule.
The manufacturer of security and monitoring products ended 2021 with more than $112 million worth of donations and volunteer hours, according to a news release. Dubbed Project100, the fundraiser launched in 2019 had a goal of wrapping up by the end of 2025.
“I want to thank all the employees of DMP for their dedication and hard work throughout this project. Every bit of the money that we are able to donate comes in some form from your labor," DMP President and CEO Rick Britton said in the release. "We can’t do it without everyone contributing; we appreciate every single minute of hard work and effort.”
Mark Hillenburg, vice president of marketing for DMP, said the bulk of the roughly $112 million came in the form of donations. While the 10,000 volunteer hours counted toward the total, they represent about $285,400 worth of work.
Benefiting nonprofits include Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks, Care to Learn, Convoy of Hope and Council of Churches of the Ozarks.
In celebration of hitting the campaign goal for Project100, Britton announced the company would award $5,000 bonuses to each of its 365 employees, according to the release.
DMP last year announced a roughly $1 million investment toward staff raises, according to past reporting.
