Quarter of Caring is our annual philanthropy campaign for every branch and team to contribute to a non-profit or cause through an activity, a team building, or an event. #ApexGivesBack is our Apex Philanthropy Program recognizing the importance of giving back to the communities where we live and work; it encourages volunteering time and talents as well as donations to support charitable organizations.
To help lead our philanthropy efforts, Apex has both a centralized committee and local Apex branch philanthropy leaders throughout the U.S. and Canada to coordinate events during the year for our #ApexGivesBack initiative. Apex offices have two or more philanthropic goals per year, with one team-building event. Apex employees are encouraged to reach out to Apex consultants and clients to share ideas for community support, coordinate and partake in events such as drives, wish lists, fundraising, and volunteering.
Company-wide, QoC has been the leading way for Apex teams to engage in social-good activities while building camaraderie. Creative ideas for community support are endless and recently included virtual environment fundraising, philanthropic team building, or other means for giving back. A sampling of local and national QoC events, partnerships, and nonprofits are listed below.
