BPC is dedicated to enhancing and shaping the community, and that means being involved in more than just our work. This vision stems from the leadership of Connie Wimer, the trailblazing founder of our company, who is renowned for her community service, philanthropy and leadership.

Leaders beyond the office

BPC places an emphasis on being a good corporate citizen. Our leadership and employees support and serve on the boards of nonprofit organizations around the Greater Des Moines area. Much of the service is done during company time.

The majority of our employees also donate monthly to United Way of Central Iowa, a local organization that brings together nonprofits and leadership to find solutions to the area’s biggest challenges.

During the Downtown Des Moines Farmer’s Market on Saturday in the spring, summer and fall, our downtown parking lot serves as a fundraiser for local nonprofits. BPC employees work the lot and collect money to support important causes.

Our products reflect our mission

We donate significant advertising space to nonprofits every year through our printed and digital products. These organizations have noble missions, but are often operating on constrained budgets. We help them deliver their passion to community leaders and influencers.

Including and amplifying voices

BPC strives to shine a light on underserved populations and issues within our communities. Publications like Inclusion or Lifting the Veil and events like LGBTQ Legacy Awards and Women of Influence serve as inspiration for many. Our publications also inform and inspire leaders to take action on a number of topics, like workforce housing, immigration, inclusion and more.
