From the very beginning of our business, we set it up to be a force for generosity. We’ve given thirty percent ownership of our company to the Amplio Foundation, meaning we get to fund the work of incredible organizations serving refugees from the profit of our work! It also means anyone with a desire to invest in the refugee workforce, can contribute funds to our foundation as well.
The Amplio Foundation donates to the following causes:
- Refugee Entrepreneurship – Both locally and internationally, non-profit organizations are fostering dignity among refugee entrepreneurs. Organizations such as HOPE International & Preemptive Love are doing phenomenal work among refugee communities. Locally, program-related investments allow us to structure grant money as below market investments to refugee entrepreneurs. We love investing in the dignity and diligence of the refugee workforce.
- Job Preparation – Several organizations in our local community are providing excellent job preparation services for the refugee workforce. Friends of Refugees is having a deep impact from creating resumes to one-on-one interview coaching and are an invaluable asset to the Clarkston community. New American Pathways, World Relief and many others offer job prep services.
- Career Skill Development – Some of the most meaningful work we support are organizations providing skills training for refugees. The Lantern Project teaches year long construction skills training courses for refugees with a focus on welding, electrical, pipe-fitting and carpentry which provide viable careers for their future. Refuge Coffee also invests in career development training and is deeply engaged in the community.
- Evangelism & Discipleship – None of the work we do matters unless the love of Jesus Christ is being shared in word and in action. Organizations such as IAFR, Navigators, the Grace Family of Churches & No Place Left are having tremendous impact in the Clarkston community and across the world in refugee communities.
We are so honored to be able to invest in and partner with the most impactful organizations serving the refugee workforce. If you would like to join us by investing generously in the refugee workforce, you can follow this link to make a secure, tax-deductible donation to the Amplio Foundation.
