Each year our company selects charities for both monetary support and volunteer hours. Our employees select a local, national and international charity. The common theme for 2016 is Children!

We selected the local Kids to Love Charity primarily for the dynamic support they are providing to foster children. Their ability to help them transition out of the system and into secondary education and job training impressed us the most. The training they are providing for new foster parents and their efforts to get more qualified parents into the system was also a compelling reason for supporting K2L.

Our national charity this year is FCA or the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Many of our employee’s children participate in FCA within the public school systems. FCA provides critical support for coaches, athletes, communities and youth camps. It is Christian based and impacts countless lives of children throughout the US.

Our international charity is the ODA Foundation. ODA is making a tremendous difference in the lives of children in Nepal. One of our former consultants took a leap of faith and committed his talents to this organization. ODA is providing children with education, support and ministry opportunities in a part of the world that is in dire need of support.

As a company we will also endeavor to support charities and give back!
