united way philanthropy


The Spirit of Greater Portland Award was recently presented to WEX by the United Way in recognition of our partnership with the organization, as well as our volunteer efforts and the role leadership plays in promoting a culture of philanthropy and community support. Check out this video to learn more from Melissa Smith, WEX President and CEO, and Hilary Rapkin, WEX’s Chief Legal Officer who oversees our corporate philanthropy functions.

“I’m incredibly excited that this WEX team has won the Spirit Award,” said Smith. “I think it’s really representative of the passionate level of commitment that they have to this cause and to the community of Greater Portland – I couldn’t be more proud.”

Rapkin noted that WEX’s strong partnership with the United Way is due, in part, to a shared vision for philanthropy and building a stronger community. Our Corporate Social Responsibility Report provides more information about how being a responsible corporate citizen is core to our mission and values.

We are thrilled by this recognition, but the benefit to the communities in which we live and work is the true reward. We cannot wait to see what comes next!
