SAN DIEGO, January 3, 2019 (Newswire.com) - The following is a letter from UE.co Founder and CEO, Jason Kulpa, regarding UE.co's 2018 Corporate Giving Report.
"UE.co has three core values: continuously improve, share your knowledge with others, and chase perfection. This sense of purpose extends beyond our products, interactions, and responsibilities within our walls. That’s why in January 2018, we gathered as a family to set goals with the intent of bringing our values into our responsibility to our nonprofit partners, the communities we serve, and the planet that we collectively share through the giving of our resources, skills, and time.
In 2018, The UE.co team has volunteered at over 12 events, donated more than $50,000, and most importantly we’ve grown as a team while working side-by-side to improve the lives of those around us. We hosted a beautiful gala dinner benefiting individuals with autism. We cheered on Special Olympic athletes as they broke their personal records on the track. We brought school supplies and cold-weather gear to students impacted by homelessness. We think that’s something to celebrate, but our work is not done.
Though it would be easy to maintain our commitment, the team again has set ambitious goals for 2019 that include doubling our financial donations and a 100% UE.co employee participation in at least one volunteer opportunity outside of the office.
We hope that by this time next year, The UE.co name will be associated as a company that does not take corporate social responsibility lightly. Inspired by companies like Patagonia and Toms, we have implemented new strategies and benefits to achieve a company culture that revolves around doing good. Beginning in January, employees can sign up for a dollar-for-dollar match on donations to any of our partner nonprofits. Additionally, our recruiting strategy will now include questions regarding the applicant's volunteer history and desire to participate in the company’s philanthropic ambitions.
There is no perfect method for fulfilling our corporate responsibility, as we believe it should never be truly fulfilled. Instead, like our core value of chasing perfection, it is a never-ending aspiration to enhance the lives of the community around us. We cannot wait to see what 2019 holds.
