Endeavor

Vistex Endeavor

As a global corporate citizen, Vistex, Inc. recognizes the importance of contributing to the communities where we live and work in a meaningful and productive way. By empowering our employees throughout the world, we hope to leverage our capabilities to address the barriers to success that poverty and human need create.

Our vision is of a world where everyone has the opportunity to reach their full potential. Vistex Endeavor works with Vistex team members throughout the world to identify opportunities to address issues of poverty and need at their root, specifically in the areas of health, education and basic needs. We believe in community-based, grassroots programming, led by those with an intimate knowledge of people they serve.

Because the barrier to healthcare is different for a child in Dharavi than it is for a child in Sierra Leone, because the challenge of providing access to education is different in Heliópolis and Englewood, we do not seek universal, large scale solutions. Rather, we seek to help one community at a time—one person at a time—in finding their path to success.

Vistex Endeavor provides support to Vistex employees through matched gift making and volunteerism. Endeavor also engages in community grant making. More information on these opportunities can be found in the links below.

We envision a world where our children’s most formative years are not hampered by issues beyond their control. We believe that brilliant, innovative, and humane minds must be nurtured, and we support programming that assists those in need in overcoming barriers to success, opportunity, health and happiness.

Our grant making is primarily focused on communities we live and work in, specifically the Chicago, Los Angeles and the Seattle-Tacoma areas.
