Make a Difference with Mindsight
We Support our Community Through Quarterly Giving Back Initiatives
At Mindsight, we’re not just client-centric, we’re people-centric. We strive to make the world a better place for the members of our Chicago-area community, because for us, doing good business also involves doing good. That’s where giving back comes in.
Mindsight hosts charity events every quarter to give our employees the chance to make a difference. Our goal is to both help local community members in whatever capacity possible, and educate employees about the different issues facing the Chicagoland area.
John Quincy Adams once said, “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”
At Mindsight, we take this quote to heart so we too can be great leaders.

Mindsight's Hunger Games
Each year, Mindsight joins our surrounding communities in the on-going fight against hunger. Though the Hunger Games theme may vary year to year, our goals remain the same: volunteer, donate, and educate.
In 2014, we collected and donated 2,650 lbs of food to Northern Illinois Food Bank.
In 2015, our employees dedicated 75 hours volunteering at several community organizations, including: the Greater Chicago Food Depository, People’s Resource Center, the Franciscan Outreach soup kitchen, Historic Wagner Farm, and Northern Illinois Food Bank. Our contributions resulted in:
- 5,091 pounds of food scanned and sorted into 130 boxes
- 2,181 pounds of food packed (providing 1,817 meals for hungry neighbors in Illinois)
- 100+ meals served to food insecure individuals
See the slideshare below.
In 2016, Mindsight held a dress down day and raised $140 for the Greater Chicago Food Depository. We donated 292 cans and packages of non-perishable foods for the Wheaton Food Pantry. In addition, Mindsight employees several donations to Feeding America, providing over 660 meals. Read more about Mindsight’s 3rd Annual Hunger Games.
St. Baldrick's Foundation
Mindsight is proud to support St. Baldrick’s in their heroic work to find cures for childhood cancers. For the past two years, Mindsight has hosted charity walks to benefit St. Baldrick’s and raise money for childhood cancer research. So far, we’ve raised nearly $10,000 for this cause. Read about Mindsight’s recent Walk and Olympics here or watch the video below.
Mindsight is a proud participant of the Dupage County Adopt-A-Highway program. We’ve pledged to help keep the roadways cleaner and safer for all users (motorists, bicyclists, pedestrians) and residents/businesses in our adopted section: Finley Rd. from Lacey Rd. to Warrenville Rd. As a part of this program, Mindsight has agreed to pick up trash/debris in the designated area four times annually.
Every single thing we do impacts the planet (good or bad). We have control over the type of impact we make. So why not make a positive one?
In honor of Arbor Day, several Mindsight employees participated in planting our very own tree on-site in Downers Grove. Watch the video below.
Domestic Violence Awareness
A Safe Place provides services to survivors of domestic violence and supports them in their efforts to transform their lives after domestic violence. Mindsight held a Denim for Domestic Violence event which allowed employees to wear jeans to the office in exchange for a monetary donation to A Safe Place. We also visited A Safe Place to learn about their important mission, and assisted in painting several rooms at their Zion location.
