Through our Community Outreach Programs, we provide support to causes reflecting employee and community interests by the means of employee volunteer efforts, corporate initiatives, and monetary donations.Randstad Federal charity support focuses on two major areas: Child Health and Welfare, and Cancer Prevention and Research. In championing these causes, we have aligned our efforts with well respected organizations that are compatible with our corporate objectives.

Methods
Randstad Federal demonstrates its leadership as a concerned community partner by encouraging and facilitating participation in the following ways:

Corporate Giving Program
Our giving program is committed to increasing opportunities and improving the quality of life in our communities, both locally and globally. Through our Corporate Giving Program, donations and outreach activities are given to non-profit, non-religious, and non-political organizations with an emphasis on Child Health and Welfare and Cancer Prevention and Research. These programs are supported on a corporate level and represent the company as a whole.

Employee Giving Program
Through our Employee Giving Program internal employees have the ability to make monetary donations to the Randstad Federal endorsed charity of their choosing through scheduled payroll deductions. In addition, at the end of the year our corporate office will provide a matching tie-in to the final donation amount presented to each organization.

Office Matching Program

Our Office Matching Program provides budgeted funds for each of our regional offices to be used to support approved charity ventures in their local communities.

Volunteer Days
Randstad Federal employees receive one full work day (or equivalent hours) per calendar year to volunteer at the non-profit organization of their choice. Employees are highly encouraged to utilize this time to participate in a charity event that is meaningful and convenient for them.

Organizations we have aligned with

Toys for Tots
Children are one of our nation’s most valuable resources. Alarmingly, approximately 13 million America children live in poverty. The new toy which millions of needy children receive each Christmas from Marines, through the Toys for Tots program, delivers a message of hope.The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.

FosterCares
What started in the founders’ garage in 1996 to help foster children in crisis resulted in a unique community resource for our most at risk children in Georgia. The Foster Care Support Foundation, a non-profit, volunteer driven organization has 12 programs including the distribution of free clothes, education and play toys, safe infant-care equipment and book distribution to thousands of Georgia’s of foster children that live in foster homes among us. The organization grew from serving 864 children in its first year of incorporation in 2000 to serving over 33,000 children since.

International Rett Syndrome Foundation (IRSF)
Rett syndrome is a childhood neurodevelopmental disorder that affects females almost exclusively. Loss of muscle tone is usually the first symptom, but other early symptoms may include problems crawling or walking and diminished eye contact. As the syndrome progresses, a child will lose purposeful use of her hands and the ability to speak. Though there is no current cure for Rett Syndrome, constant research allows for the development of new therapies and treatments. Your contributions aid in the management of such research.
