Clinical Resources is committed to supporting organizations focused on health initiatives through its culture of corporate responsibility and by giving back to the community. As part of an internal program we encourage every employee to volunteer a few hours each quarter to one of these various community and charitable organizations.
Clinical Resources provides financial support to these charities, and over the next few years, will expand its charitable contributions to other organizations, focusing on health and social services.
Clinical Resources community involvement initiatives include:
One of our proudest areas of involvement is with Kiva.org, the micro-loan group that helps entrepreneurs in third-world areas start their own businesses. Focusing mostly on helping women and marginalized groups, Kiva provides the funding needed on a small scale so that a local business can get on its feet. Kiva’s mission is to connect people, through lending, for the sake of alleviating poverty. Kiva empowers individuals to lend to an entrepreneur across the globe. By combining microfinance with the internet, Kiva is creating a global community of people connected through lending.
