Giving Back: Eze Castle Philanthropy Goes 'Back to School'
Every once in a while, it’s important for us to talk about issues bigger than technology. At Eze Castle Integration, we make a conscious effort to stay philanthropic and keep the larger community in our minds and hearts.
As you know, we are global sponsors of Help for Children (formerly Hedge Funds Care) and regularly participate in their fundraising efforts both in the United States and abroad. Our Managing Director of Service, Vinod Paul, even sits on HFC’s Global Board of Directors and is involved in planning and organizing efforts to raise money for children affected by child abuse.
Each February, we hold a ‘Like for Life’ campaign through our Facebook page, and for every new like we receive, we donate $1 to a charitable organization. In 2012, we supported The Alliance for a Healthier Generation, a foundation recognized by the 100 Women in Hedge Funds annual philanthropy conference in Boston.
This summer, we are proud to say we’ve organized our 4th Annual Back to School Backpack Drive in our Boston office and are collecting school supplies to support School on Wheels of Massachusetts, a nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of children living in homeless shelters.
This year, we’ve even extended our Backpack Drive efforts to other US offices and will be supporting the following organizations:
Stamford, CT: Southern New England Salvation Army
Chicago, IL: SOS Children’s Village IL
New York, NY: Volunteers of America
San Francisco, CA: United Way of the Bay Area
Beyond efforts organized directly by Eze Castle, we also encourage our employees to support their communities individually, and we are committed to matching gifts our employees make to charitable organizations. Whether it’s a backpack full of school supplies or a fundraising event sponsorship, here at Eze Castle we recognize the importance of community involvement and hope to spread that awareness and significance to other organizations and individuals.
A BIG thank you to our employees who participated in this year's Back to School Drive!
