Community Relations

How do you build a better world?
At Embanet we’ve made it our mission to help others by making educational opportunities available whenever, and wherever the desire to learn is prevalent. We believe in what we do, but we also believe that building a better world begins right here, at home, in our local community.
We are proud to support the people and communities that surround our offices in Orlando, Toronto and Chicago. Embanet encourages our employees to get engaged and become involved in philanthropic events, even when it means taking some time away from our desks on a workday. By supporting a good cause, by getting out of the office and getting our hands dirty in an effort to help others, we strengthen the bonds with our neighbors and between each other.

Here are some of community outreach projects and charitable organizations we support in Orlando, Chicago and Toronto through hard work, fund raising and donations.

Habitat for Humanity
Getting out from behind our desks, putting on the work gloves and volunteering to build houses for low-income families in our local community – feels like a rewarding way to spend a day.

Dana-Faber Cancer Institute
Normally skipping out of work to play golf is something you get in trouble for. Playing golf during work hours to support the Dana-Faber Cancer Institute’s mission to help adults and children through cutting-edge research – that’s encouraged.

Toys for Tots

Supporting the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation just feels right. Collecting toys and games for children around the holidays is a great way to wrap up the year.

March of Dimes
Getting really dirty feels right when you’re doing it for a good cause. We joined the March of Dimes’ annual Mud Volleyball Tournament to help raise money to improve the health of babies, prevent birth defects and prevent infant mortality.

A Gift for Teaching
We support higher education everyday. This time we decided to support our local public school teachers by collecting school supplies and surplus materials, which are given free to teachers for their students in need.

2nd Harvest Food Bank
We gathered food and clothes to donate, but wanted to do more, so we took a shift at the 2nd Harvest Food Bank – collecting, sorting, organizing and packaging food for needy families across Central Florida.

Lighthouse Central Florida

Embanet staff members planned and executed a fundraiser to support Lighthouse Central Florida, a non-profit agency offering services that help children and families dealing with sight impairment issues.

IOA Corporate 5k
Celebrating healthy living the IOA Corporate 5k is a run/walk event for businesses and non-profit organizations that promotes camaraderie, friendly competition and celebrating with our co-workers. Proceeds support children’s health and fitness programs.

SickKids Foundation
Inspiring communities to invest in health and scientific advances to improve the lives of children and families in Canada and around the world, Sick Kids vision is for “Healthier Children. A Better World.™.” Established in 1972, SickKids Foundation raises funds on behalf of The Hospital for Sick Children.
