It’s the season for giving, and each year Waypoint gives back by donating to four charitable organizations that are working to improve the lives of people worldwide. We call it “4 Acts of Kindness” and it’s our way of celebrating the holiday season in a meaningful way. This year, Waypoint staff have collectively decided to donate to the following charities: Water.org, The Trevor Project, Planned Parenthood, and Compass Family Services. Waypoint encourages its clients and partners to vote to decide how it allocates its donation among these organizations; you help us make a difference every day, and as a way of paying it forward, we want to help others in their mission to make a difference. If you would like to join Waypoint in donating to these charities, please follow the links below to learn more about how you can contribute. Happy Holidays from Waypoint!
