Our Mission

The mission for our Corporate Giving & Volunteer Programs is to connect colleagues to the community and to promote volunteer activities that provide rewarding experiences that benefit the community.

Summary

Our Corporate Giving & Volunteer Program provides opportunities for volunteers at a variety of events throughout the year. Below are some of the organizations that we have partnered with:

  • First Robotics
  • Minnesota Food Share
  • Everybody Wins MN
  • Common-Bond
  • United Way
  • Toy’s for Tots
  • American Red Cross
  • Memorial Blood Center

Corporate Giving and Volunteer Programs are based at the Entrust Datacard global headquarters and are expanding at our other locations.

"I really enjoy volunteering because I put a lot of value into being able to give back to the community. What better way than to combine charitable work with my career? My favorite activity to participate in the annual Minnesota FoodShare Campaign. We have a whole bunch of activities that people can participate in and we also have a raffle with some great prizes. People really have fun with the raffle and the company matches all donations. All the proceeds go to local food shelves that all help feed needy families in our area." - David, IT Operations Manager

"I enjoy the Everybody Wins Reading Program because it is so nice to step out of the corporate world into the life of a child for an hour a week." - Rebecca, Director of International Sourcing

"I joined the committee as it is important for me to work for a company that is committed to giving back to the community. The event I am particularly passionate about is our participation in Minnesota FoodShare month as we have raised thousands of dollars for those in need across Minnesota." - Chrissy, Human Resources Manager

"I appreciate Entrust Datacard supporting the community by participating in activities such as working at the Minnesota FoodShare network. My family enjoys volunteering together, and on occasion, their schedules have enabled them to volunteer with me at an Entrust Datacard sponsored event. It’s a great way to both help our community and engage with other colleagues" - Sally, Senior Instructional Designer

"I enjoy being a part of the Corporate Giving committee because it gives me an opportunity to take a step back from my daily office work to truly realize and be grateful for what I have in life. It also feels great to be able to benefit those who are struggling, and to make even a small impact on their lives." - Kyle, Mechanical Engineer
