Our 2014 Community Giving Recipients

Integrity Data in Lincoln, Illinois has awarded a total of $10,000 in grant monies to not-for-profit organizations in the area. The funds, awarded from an Integrity Data employee giving fund, were distributed on Thursday, May 1, 2014 at a dessert reception honoring recipients.

 “I appreciate the passion for our local community that is imparted through our CEO, Patrick Doolin.  Programs like Integrity Data’s Community Giving causes me to feel like I am part of something truly important and meaningful.” says Tom Franz, Product Manager at Integrity Data.

Integrity Data received a total of 24 applications from qualified, tax-exempt organizations serving the residents of Logan County. Applications were then evaluated and voted on by integrity Data’s employees.

 This year’s grant recipients are:

  • Together For Lincoln will use the funds to purchase materials needed to complete needs-based projects in our community such as interior and exterior painting, basic electrical or plumbing repairs, yard clean-up, window washing, wheelchair ramp construction, and more. 
  • Boy Scouts Venture Crew will use the funds to purchase three highly durable portable GPS units to be used for the development of outdoor skills, navigation, merit badge completion (Hiking and Geocaching) and recreation.
  • Home Sweet Home Ministry will use the funds for “Jobs For Life” training in the community. Jobs for Life is a 16 session job preparation program that helps those in need find dignity and purpose through meaningful work. 
  • Lincoln Junior High School will use the funds to help bring Marion Blumenthal Lazan, a Holocaust survivor who is a speaker and author of Four Perfect Pebbles, to Lincoln in October to speak at their school. 

His Hands Ministry will use the funds to purchase a computer, set up all of their financial data in a “Quick Books” and to allow their director to receive coaching on a monthly basis over one year through 3DM, a training organization that works with Christian leaders.

What is the Community Giving Program?

Community and family are at the center of all that we do at Integrity Data. Our Community Giving Program was established in 2008 with the goal to have a meaningful impact on the Lincoln, IL community, which most of us call home. The program provides grants for local organizations involved in helping those in need, as well as community progress initiatives and projects focused on improving the use of technology within public service organizations. Many organizations have received funding from the program since its inception. A list of year 2010-2013 recipients can be viewed below.
