APT is committed to a corporate culture of helping those in need. Every year, employees nominate non-profit organizations in their communities to receive financial support from funds donated by our employee-owners. This fund is managed by a volunteer committee, which also organizes group volunteer activities and collection drives throughout the year.
Corporate Giving Fund Mission Statement
“The APT Research, Inc., Corporate Giving Fund Charter endeavors to constructively influence its employee-owners’ local communities by providing financial support to non-profit organizations, through facilitation of a generous corporate culture committed to helping those in need.”
In 2014, APT began partnering with the Community Foundation of Greater Huntsville to establish a fund to “give back” to our local communities. The Community Foundation handles all of the administrative details and issues grants to the charities APT selects. Over the past few years, our funds have helped rebuild an inner city neighborhood, enabled high school students to visit colleges, and supported local rescue missions. Occasionally, we disperse funds in times of emergency situations (ex., tornado, hurricane, etc.).
In addition to giving funds, we also donate our time to improve our communities. APT sponsors the Adopt-A-Mile project by picking up trash on the mile around our HQ building (Research and Corporate Drive). APT volunteers have also read to elementary school children, participated in Bike MS events, and picked vegetables at the CASA garden. If you have a local non-profit organization in your community that you would like to nominate for consideration for receiving funds or requesting volunteers, feel free to send the information on that organization to firstname.lastname@example.org.
