A Year Later: Acclaro's Giving Back Program

A Year Later: Acclaro’s Giving Back Program

Category: Acclaro News, Culture

The Acclaro team ended 2019 with a call to action: come together to support our communities, other businesses and the planet as part of our Giving Back Program. The initiative serves as a framework as we live out our social mission to contribute to a better quality of life for our fellow community members around the world.

One very eventful year later, we’re taking a look back to see the difference we’re making together.

Time to Volunteer

Acclaro also introduced Volunteer Time Off (VTO) at the end of 2019 to give our employees the opportunity to support worthy causes and organizations. Many jumped at the chance, including our director of client development David Hutson. He and his daughter Annabelle worked weekly with a crew of volunteers to maintain trails and habitats in the Rockefeller State Park Preserve — a venture that perfectly aligns with Acclaro’s commitment to environmental sustainability.

Corporate Giving

After a challenging year, Acclaro also strove to make a positive impact through our corporate giving. This holiday season, we expressed our gratitude for the continued support of our clients, partners and communities by making charitable donations on their behalf. 

Our team members selected the following local and international humanitarian causes as recipients:

  • World Central Kitchen
  • Local Food Banks
  • World Medical Relief
  • The Trevor Project
  • Equal Justice Initiative

An Ongoing Mission

Moving into 2021, Acclaro will continue our social mission to make a difference at home and abroad by giving back to life-changing organizations. We encourage everyone to join us — together we can make a difference!
