Prime employees gave more than $1 million to Children’s Minnesota

September 8, 2021

Prime Therapeutics (Prime) celebrates a milestone in its employee giving program — $1 million in donations to Children’s Minnesota.

Prime added Children’s Minnesota as one of its strategic corporate partners in 2012. Since that time, Children’s Minnesota has been the most popular charity with employees during Prime’s annual week of giving program.

Renee Treberg, chief compliance officer and board member for Children’s Minnesota said, “We want to be able to give beyond our work life and our home life and contribute to the communities where we work and live. Children’s Minnesota is just an easy ‘yes’.”

In addition to funds raised, Prime has also sponsored private patient rooms, iPads, computers and events. And Prime employees are regular volunteers at the Ronald McDonald House, located within the Minneapolis and St. Paul Children’s Hospitals.

Courtney Giese, associate functional business associate at Prime, has a personal connection with Minnesota Children’s Hospital. Her daughter, Claire was given a second chance of life after receiving care there.

“I’m not only a Children’s Minnesota parent, I’m also a Prime Therapeutics employee,” says Courtney. “It’s nice to know the company you work for is willing to go above and beyond.”

This month, Prime is a sponsor of the Shine Bright for Cancer Kids campaign as part of its ongoing support of Children’s Minnesota.
