Atlanta Nonprofits Enjoy Corporate Partnership With ivision
ivision joined the Pledge 1% network in 2018. Companies in the network are committed to giving back their time and profits to improve local communities. Since 2018, ivision employees have each pledged 20 service hours annually toward nonprofit organizations. This year, we partnered with several Atlanta nonprofits to organize hands-on and skills-based volunteer events.

Working With Atlanta Nonprofits:
- Employees helped set up for the Foster Care Support Foundation 2019 Prom-a-Palooza. The annual event allows displaced high school girls to select free prom dresses and accessories.
- This was our second year volunteering at Atlanta Community Food Bank’s Product Resource Center. Our 80+ employees came together over two days to donate goods and labor and packed nearly 37,000 pounds of food.
- We made a video showcasing our long partnership with PowerMyLearning! Many of our team members enjoy donating their technical skills to make a difference in the community.
- For Hands On Atlanta Week, we volunteered with Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta. Within a few hours, our team of 15 employees built 30 coffee tables together.
- As the holidays approached, nearly 60 ivision employees volunteered in Santa’s Village with The Empty Stocking Fund organization. Here, qualified families can select brand new gifts to give their children for the holidays – without worrying about costs.

Atlanta’s nonprofit organizations value corporate giving and group volunteer events. “We are always so grateful when groups like ivision come to the food bank and volunteer,” says Jon West, VP of Programs at Atlanta Community Food Bank. “When you get that many people to show up and do something together, you carry that back not just into your workplace but into your surrounding community as well.”
