Community outreach and giving back has been at the forefront of DataEndure’s culture for the last 30 plus years. Our CEO, Kurt Klein instills his passion for helping others to all of his employees.
Kurt is a Mentor for an organization that is very near and dear to his heart, Pursuit Of Excellence, http://www.poescholarships.org/. Each year Kurt mentors 4 students who have faced financial hardship and need the guidance of a Mentor who can help them navigate the challenges of achieving success because of the low-income status of their family situation or any other roadblocks that make these teens at risk. He contributes his time to helping these kids with whatever they may need to reach their goal of becoming a college graduate.
Another charity that is meaningful to Kurt is Second Harvest Food Bank, http://www.shfb.org/. Along with volunteering his time, Kurt has infected the entire team at DataEndure with the passion to collect food donations for this fine organization. Every year the entire staff travel to our local Safeway store just before Thanksgiving and each employee fills an entire cart of meats, dried and canned goods and everyone checks out and DataEndure picks up the entire tab. They then load up a truck with all of the groceries and deliver them to the food bank.Along with these fine charities, DataEndure as part of a company culture campaign offers gift cards to other organizations in a matching offers contest. If any employee is nominated by a peer for demonstrating one of the company’s culture pillars, DataEndure will make a donation to a charity of the employee’s choice.
