EK is active within our community. We seek to make a positive difference both on a local and global scale. In support of this goal, we’ve chosen to partner with several philanthropies and nonprofit organizations that are doing great work to accomplish goals that we’re particularly passionate about.
We seek to build long-term relationships with these organizations, offering not just financial support, but also our time and expertise. In support of this effort, EK offers an employee benefit providing time for each member of our team to volunteer for our partner organizations in lieu of work. We see this as an important part of our commitment, demonstrating we will “show up” to support our partner organizations.
We selected our current philanthropic partners based on their mission and alignment with EK’s own areas of interest, the fact that they are all highly effective in what they do, and our ability to make a difference with them.
