Today Evolve IP, The Cloud Services Company™, announced that the Philadelphia Business Journal and presenting sponsor Wells Fargo have recognized it as one of the region’s top organizations for corporate giving. Since its founding in 2007 Evolve IP and its associates have donated over 3,000 hours of time and contributed more than $4,000, 000 to charities through its innovative Evolve Cares program.
The program, which supports more than 35 charities, is driven by Evolve IP associates and backed by the company with both financial and personnel resources. When an associate feels passionately about a charity the company works with them to provide opportunities for others to get involved with hands-on work. Additionally, Evolve IP provides a financial match for their donations. Recent Evolve Cares initiatives driven by Evolve IP associates include:
• Developing and leading the annual Evolve IP Spring Fling 5 Mile Race on the Chester Valley Trail. Proceeds from the race benefit Manna. Registrations for the 2015 race are still open.
• The company is hosting, and volunteers are mentoring, high school students enrolled in the Junior Achievement Company Program. In this initiative students form and run their own business; from startup to liquidation.
• Associates are supporting the families of the Ronald McDonald House by becoming a guest chef for the evening. Volunteers will be preparing, cooking, and serving meals for over 90 families.
• Through People for People, Evolve IP and its associates sponsored 200 children for the 2014 holiday season providing them with gifts and needed clothing.
“When we founded Evolve IP one of the pillars of the organization was corporate philanthropy and I am very proud of what we have accomplished,” said Thomas J. Gravina, Chairman, CEO and Co-Founder of Evolve IP. “Giving back is woven into the fabric of our culture and you can see that every month as our associates are out in their communities working on projects that range from building playgrounds to baking pies to leading campaigns to honor our fallen soldiers.”
