Our core mission recognizes the value to being a good corporate citizen and giving back to our communities and those in need. We accomplish this in many ways, including our Charity program and our Volunteer Communities program.
EMPSi Charity Fund: EMPSi donates a percentage of our net profit to charities focusing on children, adult literacy, health, environment, the arts and animal welfare. We use both the American Institute of Philanthropy (www.charitywatch.org) and Charity Navigator (www.charitynavigator.com) as guides in selecting charitable organizations. Clients may nominate additional charities for consideration.
