When it comes to strengthening our neighborhoods and enriching the communities where we work, live, and play, we believe that we all have an opportunity to use our time, talents, and resources to create positive change in the world.
Since 2002, Wimmer Solutions has been committed to investing in the well-being of our community in a variety of ways, from grantmaking to skills based volunteerism to special events that drive awareness of and engagement with our core focus areas; issues that map to what we do – and who we are:
We invest in work that inspires local students – especially those from low-income and minority backgrounds – to pursue education and careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math
Connecting people with meaningful careers is at the heart of what we do. To ensure that everyone is prepared to find fulfilling work, we help low-income and minority youth, veterans, and the families of fallen soldiers access the education and job skills training they need to prepare for a rewarding career
Athletic engagement is a powerful medium for driving change in our communities: from improving public health to bulding leadership skills to bridging the divide between our differences, sport brings us together in many ways
Our community programs focus on a small number of high impact partnerships with nonprofit organizations whose work lies in these three target areas, and while we’re proud of the difference we’ve made, we recognize that we can’t do it alone: businesses, nonprofits, governments, and individuals all have a role to play in sustaining a world we all want to live in. It’s why we encourage our business partners, employees, and the community at large to get involved with causes they care about through the many tools and programs we provide to support more widespread community engagement.
