A Commitment to Our Global Communities
A Focus on Health, Education and Basic Needs
Vistex Endeavor is a program that leverages our capabilities, our relationships and most importantly, the efforts of our associates around the globe to eliminate the barriers to success for those most in need. Through volunteering, gift matching, grants and social impact programs, we focus on the core areas where community service is most impactful.
Access to adequate healthcare is paramount to the success of any community. We support bringing facilities to remote impoverished regions and supporting frontline workers in our own cities.
Providing aid and opportunity to those facing barriers to completing high school and gaining a higher education of their choice. Supporting those who lack the access so many take for granted.
Recognizing the good fortune so many of us enjoy, we remind ourselves to care for those who have so little, who struggle with housing, hunger, illness and violence.
Gift Matching and Dollars for Doers
Vistex associates around the world are very engaged in their communities. Whether through donations, volunteerism, board service or other means, our team is active and engaged. Through the Endeavor program, Vistex supports and amplifies those efforts through a 1:1 gift matching program and a “Dollars for Doers” program that matches volunteer work with grants to organizations.
In London it’s charitable bake sales, in Kent, toy collections, in Hyderabad a collection of basic necessities for the needy. Our headquarters in Chicago has hosted the Gigi’s Playhouse team for ice cream, and has planted trees in local parks. Recognizing the power of teamwork, our Ambassadors in offices around the world coordinate in-office fundraisers, learn from “lunch and learn” speakers, and welcome organizations into Vistex to help us help them.
Volunteer Appreciation Month & Giving Week
April is Volunteer Appreciation Month at Vistex, and we celebrate by doubling our volunteer grants on behalf of the work of employees and their families. Giving Week, which is between Giving Tuesday in November and International Volunteer day in December, is huge at Vistex. It is a time where all gifts are matched on a 2:1 basis and offices are busy with planned events, team volunteer outings, and seasonal collections for food banks, shelters, and other charities serving those in need.
Formed in 2012, the Vistex Foundation is a global effort to help those in need by removing barriers to success. Through the foundation, Vistex supports local schools and education programs, organizations serving the needs of the homeless, and those lacking in effective healthcare. The Foundation also has invested in higher education through community college technology scholarships, community service program support, and leadership research and development. Recently, the Foundation completed the building of a primary and secondary health facility in Bihar, India. The Vistex Hospital is now a critical link in the fight against Covid.
Vistex recognizes there is an opportunity to leverage the high-level knowledge of our associates, the capabilities of our products, and the experience and networks of our partners around the world. We have committed ourselves to building programs that do just that. Initiatives like VistexGO bring together community relationships, software development acumen and the power of Vistex solutions to make a difference for those in need. For us, Social Innovation means recognizing we have the power to do more, and pursuing that goal as we do with our clients everywhere.
