What makes Paycor’s culture so dynamic? We think it comes down to our most important guiding principles: “do the right thing,” and “take care of each other.” From Paycor It Forward Days to our Community Partners program that’s raised more than $1.4 million, Paycor associates live to make a difference.
We’re excited to announce Paycor is doubling down on community support! Our Paycor Community Impact Fund represents a significant evolution in our giving. For the first time, Paycor associates were given the opportunity to nominate local 501(c)(3) organizations to receive a one-time grant up to $20,000.
The fund proudly supports organizations that speak to one of our key impact areas:
- Improve educations and workforce readiness
- Encourage health and provide human service
- Stimulate a healthy environment and conservation
- Enable the arts and culture
For our first bi-annual grant cycle, Paycor will donate $66,000 across 10 organizations. Get to know these nonprofits and how the grants will help them make a difference:
The funds will help provide mental health screenings to the economically disadvantaged youth in Cincinnati high schools and connect them with behavioral health services.
Implement a trail restoration project in Yosemite National Park in honor of National Trails Day. Funds would support the Washington Column trail, an all-volunteer conservation project at one of park’s most popular destinations.
Fund the creation of a “doggy food truck”, Bark Bus, to provide additional revenue to the Brewhaus vocational training and employment program, which supports adults with developmental disabilities.
The goal is to help create a permanent toiletry pantry for low-income families of Hamilton County and Fairfield Township area of Cincinnati.
Fund a basketball court and kids play area in the House of Hope facilities supporting low-income and at-risk families in the Kansas City, MO area. Children attending House of Hope are connected with mentorship resources and provided with additional wraparound services as part of their youth programming.
Provide forty scholarship opportunities for the Jubilee Summer Camp, providing hands-on STEM experiences to underprivileged and/or special needs youth in the Dallas, TX area. Funds will be used as a ‘challenge’ grant to entice additional donor matching, in addition to supporting the summer curriculum costs for each student.
Fund private scholarships for Price Hill Will’s MYCincinnati tuition-free after-school youth orchestra program. Includes music lessons/education, opportunity for students to attend 4 concerts, and 8 public youth performances of the orchestra during the 2019-20 school year.
Develop an outdoor education program that provides art education and workforce readiness skills to youths in the Youth Resiliency Program and Synergy House emergency shelter through science programming, creative art projects and building trade skills. The garden additionally functions as a conservation effort as well as providing healthy food to the beneficiary population in Kansas City, MO.
Implement a “PaycorIT” program for Cincinnati men and women experiencing homelessness coupled with mental illness to provide computer training classes that develop job-related skills and connect participants with job opportunities, develop resumes and provide consistent access to email for communication.
Build a new greenhouse to provide funding for the organization’s Men’s Addiction Recovery program (food, room, work therapy and life skills training) and supply food for daily meal program at the men’s, women’s and children’s shelters in Hamilton, GA.
