At Gonzalez Contract Services we support many diverse charities, from United Way to Juvenile Diabetes

At Gonzalez, we believe that giving back is one of the most important mission’s of any successful organization. From its very beginning, the Gonzalez portfolio has supported many diverse charities, from United Way to Juvenile Diabetes. Over the years, our reach has extended to philanthropic causes both large and small, culminating in the creation of the Ric Gonzalez Memorial Foundation (www.rgmf.net) to help provide college scholarships to Hispanic students in our region.

Today, we continue to support dozens of charitable causes involving poverty, disease, youth services and education.

The Ric Gonzalez Memorial Foundation was created in 2004 to honor the life and gifts of Fredrick Julian Gonzalez.
Each year, the foundation provides scholarships to deserving Hispanic students living in Southeastern Michigan. So far 153 scholarships have been awarded totaling $551,500. Scholarship funds can be used towards whichever school the students choose to attend and can even be used for books and other necessary school supplies.
