capSpire Encourages a Corporate Culture of Giving Back to Local Communities

Fayetteville, AR; Tulsa, OK (PRWEB) May 09, 2013

capSpire, a global consulting and solutions company, recently awarded several donations totaling over $10,000 to Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Fayetteville, Arkansas, charity organizations. capSpire’s employee charity donation program largely contributed to the firm’s latest donations. Each year five capSpire employees are randomly chosen to identify a non-profit organization of their choice to receive a monetary donation from the firm. Charities were selected by employees based on cause, need, and personal experience or involvement.

“We have created a stronger company by supporting each of our employees’ philanthropic causes.” — capSpire co-founder Jeff Hardcastle

Non-profit organizations receiving donations are:

  • Arkansas Children’s Hospital (donation on behalf of Jose Jo)
  • Youth Bridge (donation on behalf of Michael Murphy)
  • Seven Hills Homeless Shelter (donation on behalf of Jeff Smith)
  • Youth Services of Tulsa (donation on behalf of Kyle Upchurch)
  • Donald W. Reynolds Boys & Girls Club (donation on behalf of Brad Tomlin)

The program is one way capSpire encourages employees to pursue charitable giving and volunteerism. capSpire co-founder Jeff Hardcastle says giving back will always be a part of the culture at capSpire.

“We have created a stronger company by supporting each of our employees’ philanthropic causes. From improving local education to championing for those less fortunate, capSpire is committed to giving back to our local communities through volunteerism and monetary support throughout the year,” Hardcastle says.

To follow through with the firm’s focus on improving local education, capSpire recently created three scholarships to be awarded to computer engineering, computer science, and industrial engineering students at the University of Arkansas. capSpire leadership and employees have also participated in local elementary school charity runs and have made monetary donations on behalf of the firm.

In an effort to help less fortunate individuals in the community, each year capSpire sends a team to the Good Samaritan House in Springdale to serve Thanksgiving dinners to local members of the community in need of a hot meal. capSpire also foregoes annual client gifts and instead sends monetary donations to charity groups on behalf of the firm’s clients.

“Our employees truly value the spirit of service and believe that passion can move mountains. capSpire is proud to help organizations in Arkansas and Oklahoma that are diligently working to improve the quality of life in our communities. We look forward to expanding our non-profit support to other locations where we have offices, employees, and clients – both within the U.S. and worldwide,” capSpire CEO Lance Laubach says.

Laubach currently serves on the Youth Services of Tulsa Board of Directors. capSpire recently sponsored Youth Services of Tulsa’s annual Black Canvas chef cook-off event. The event raised financial support for Youth Services of Tulsa to maintain local runaway and homeless Services, counseling, delinquency prevention, and youth development programs.
