At Avionté, our leadership team takes corporate social responsibility initiatives seriously. After all, staffing is a people business, and what we value highly as a staffing software provider and vendor for the industry is being able to help our clients help their employees find valuable work, and improve their lives. And that's where the idea for the Avionté Hope Foundation first stemmed from.
In early 2012, Avionté's leadership team launched the Avionté Hope Foundation (AHF), a non-profit arm of Avionté, with two main goals in mind. First, they wanted to provide Avionté employees the opportunity to become more involved in supporting local charities and organizations. All Avionté employees are given three "Hope" days per year to go out and volunteer within the community, and in addition, Avionté organizes a number of in-office fundraisers throughout the year. Second, Avionté Hope was created to give back to the community with an overhead mission to impact specific individuals by helping them achieve long-term life improvement through financial and personal support.
The Avionté Hope Foundation is all about touching lives and driving change, and we feel we've been able to make a significant positive impact throughout the community since the founding of Avionté Hope. We're passionate about partnering with organizations that are focused on help people help themselves and lucky for us, there are so many great Minnesota organizations that are doing just that!
So far, the Foundation has donated over $100,000 to local charities and organizations. We've worked with over 30 non-profit organizations in the area, and Avionté employees have spent over 1,300 hours volunteering through the Hope Day program.
