"We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give."
- Winston S. Churchill
In our office, the spirit of giving back is contagious.
CEO Kurt Klein believes in running a company where community involvement is prioritized as much as business objectives, and he ignites the same passion in our team members. We put our time where our mouth is, with in-person volunteering as well as donations.
DataEndure is proud to be an active supporter of local charities for over 35 years, including:
Second Harvest Food Bank
Second Harvest Food Bank works to ensure that anyone who needs a healthy meal in our community can get one. DataEndure stands for those in need; and what began with our CEO volunteering has turned into an annual spectacle! As an annual tradition, we travel to our local Safeway, each employee is challenged to fill a cart - and DataEndure picks up the tab. We then load up our truck and deliver the groceries to the food bank as a team.
Coaches Against Cancer
Too many people in the DataEndure family have been affected by cancer, as a response, we actively participate with organizations focused on curing cancer as well as supporting those whose lives have been touched by it. CAC, founded by nine Bay Area sports coaches inspired by their own experiences with cancer, has a mission to Help Dreams Come True as their way of supporting cancer patients and their families. DataEndure is an annual sponsor of CAC's main fundraising event, and takes pleasure in helping facilitate Dreams as they develop. We are proud to support this organization in delivering “dreams” of all sizes to help families where and when they need it most.
American Cancer Society Relay for Life, Santa Clara
Relay For Life is the signature fundraiser for the ACS, staffed and coordinated by volunteers from local communities. For one of our own, Krissy Barker, this mission is very personal, and she has become central to this annual event. We put our full support behind Krissy and ACS, helping the Relay bring our community together as we remember loved ones lost, honor survivors of all cancers, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society make a local and global impact on cancer.
Pursuit Of Excellence
Each year our CEO mentors four students who have faced financial hardship, guiding them to overcome the obstacles of low-income family status and other challenges (beginning with college graduation), to navigate their way to success.
