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.

Relay For Life
We’re up against our biggest rival—cancer—and to beat it, we’ve got to attack it from every angle. That’s why, on Saturday June 2, Mindsight is proud to walk with so many other survivors, caregivers, and participants in this year’s Relay For Life of Joliet. We’re raising money not just for breakthrough research, but also to help provide services like free rides to chemo, free lodging near hospitals, and a 24/7 cancer helpline. You can join us!

Hustle for Health
Mindsight was pleased to participate in Kenneth Young Center’s 16th Annual Hustle for Health 5K Run/Walk. The Run/Walk was held on Saturday May 6, 2017. The Kenneth Young Center is a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit, comprehensive provider of mental health and senior citizens’ support services. Their mission is to help people “feel good, do better and find solutions.”
Mindsight’s goal was to raise $1,500 towards the center’s goal of $60,000 so they can continue to provide much needed support services for children, adults, and seniors. We nearly doubled our fundraising goal.Register for the Walk or Make a Donation

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.Learn More About a Safe Place
