Endorsing front line Healthcare workers Being proactive and resourceful to the needs of the society, particularly through challenging times, is the pivotal responsibility that Edify commits to itself on priority. The onset of COVID-19 Pandemic left the local Healthcare professionals in short of N95 masks. Considering the occupational safety and health hazards of these professionals Edify donated $1500 worth of KN95 3 Ply Surgical masks to various nursing homes in Naperville, IL. Empowering young adults Unique initiatives and impressive efforts always enthrall Edify. Colors4change, run by school children, who are sensible towards preserving environment, is one of the non-profits whom Edify has backed for a long time. Supporting the young adults in their current effort “Banding together against COVID-19”, Edify donated in good time, 250 numbers of 3-ply surgical mask, a number that was significant in light of the pandemic. Obligation to help The COVID-19 outbreak effected Edify so much that it swiftly responded to the need of the hour across the world. Stanley Medical college, a 200-year-old government college in Chennai, Tamil Nadu could prepare itself to handle the epidemic with our purchase of RT-PCR Covid-19 Testing machine, worth $3500. As part of Chicago chapter of Tamil Nadu foundation, Edify cherishes its long-term association with Stanley Medical college and the opportunities to extend our support. Aiding a good cause Edify diligently joined hands with ITServe alliance notable for its various CSR activities. We contributed $1000 to support one of their COVID-19 related CSR activity. Promoting entrepreneurship Edify shows its allegiance by promoting entrepreneurship that creates sustainable jobs contributing to the economic success of the State. “Thinkubators” and “Startup Challenge of Adults” were the two grand initiatives in 2019 where prizes worth$2000 and $15,000 were given away to encourage and instill entrepreneurship in the minds of school going adults. Uplifting the needy Edify strongly prefers teaming up with organizations that uplifts the people in necessitous circumstances and influences their lives positively. Edify warmly remembers one such of its contribution of $1200 to Life Help Charity Foundation – a non-profit charity organization involved in helping the poor, disabled and the needy all over the world. Support for Education Edify is highly sensitive to the societal issues arising due to lack of education. Realizing its importance and the role it plays in community upliftment, Edify has right programs in place to sponsor community college tuition fees. A lot of school drop outs are being benefitted out of such programs. It is customary in Edify and we continue to be empathetic towards such needs. Caring for Society Caring for the care givers of the society empowers Edify. We have been consistent and unceasing in our contributions to local Police, Sheriff, Firefighter, Veterans & various local Associations as a gesture of glorifying their services. Supporting distressed families Unforeseen circumstances demand physical, emotional and financial support. When GoFundME approached Edify, we synergized with their greater intention of helping people in need. Our contribution of more than $5K enabled them provide support to several families in US. Inclusiveness Apna Ghar has its strong presence in advocacy across communities to end gender violence. Edify as an organization is inclusive and has helped Apna Ghar with its contributions.
