The Ohio Employee Ownership Center
2012/2013 Friends of the Center
Dear Friend of the OEOC,
I can’t help but believe that in the future we will see in the United States and throughout the western world an increasing trend toward the next logical step, employee ownership. It is a path that befits a free people.
– President Ronald Reagan
Employee-owned businesses reinvest in their employees and their local community. Employees are considered as assets, not just an expense. Each employee shares in the rewards (and the risks) of being an owner. We are asking you now to join us in creating a new economy by making a tax-deductible donation to the OEOC through its Friends of the Center program.
Studies consistently show that employee-owned companies outperform companies that are not employee-owned and that, during the Great Recession, employee-owned companies remained more profitable and productive than their conventionally owned counterparts. Employee ownership is simply a better way of doing business.
As a supporter of the OEOC, you can be proud of helping make these accomplishments possible. But there’s more to do in Ohio and throughout the country. Be a part of it. With the continuing strain on federal and state budgets for supporting the OEOC, your willingness to become a Friend of the OEOC is more important than ever.
Please consider making a contribution to the OEOC. Your contribution is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Join us in creating a new economy!
All of us at the OEOC wish you and your family a happy holiday season and all the best in 2013.
