More than 70 organizations worldwide received equipment, school supplies, books and other financial support from foundation grants in 2017. Founded in 2007, the foundation's mission is to apply company resources and expertise to transform the educational experience for students of greatest need. Grant requests are sponsored by TTEC employees and provide an opportunity for employees to give back to the communities in which they live and work.

Community foundation grant awards included $185,000 given to organizations in the state of Colorado, where TTEC is headquartered. Other local community outreach activities for TTEC include hosting of the "Teaming Up for Texas" event, a telethon for the American Red Cross in response to Hurricane Harvey. The event, hosted at the company's Englewood headquarters, raised more than half a million dollars and included more than 650 volunteer hours from TTEC employees.

2017 foundation grant award highlights include:

  • $30,000 donated to build a Center for survivors of Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) and to renovate a school library impacted by Typhoon Ondoy (Ketsana) in partnership with Habitat for Humanity
  • Nearly 1,950 books donated to students via Book Trust
  • $5,000 donated to "One Book 4 Colorado" campaign that provided a book to every Colorado 4-year-old
  • 480 computers donated to schools in the Philippines

"We are proud to give back to the communities in which we operate around the world, working with educational organizations who impact the lives of students each day," said Michael Wellman, Chief People Officer, TTEC. "Our foundation was founded on the principle that education is the key to a successful community and we look forward to continuing to provide support to these organizations in 2018."

10 regional organizations across the globe have already benefited from 2018 grant awards, including Youth Challenge, Boys and Girls Club, YMCA, Ronald McDonald House and Junior Achievement. The foundation also recently served as presenting sponsor for the 16th Annual Motif Charity Walk, organized to create health awareness and raise funds for social causes, including education for the underprivileged, in India.
