At Focus Technology, we believe we all play a role in making the world a better place. We are deeply committed to supporting our local communities and charitable organizations as we strive to make a difference in the lives of those around us. Corporate social responsibility is intricately woven into the culture of the organization—each and every one of us plays a role. We proudly support the following worthy causes:
The American Heart Association
For the past three years, Focus has participated in the AHA Boston Heart Walk to celebrate survivors and support research that can help save lives. In 2018 and 2019, Focus Technology CEO Doug Alexander served as the Boston Heart Walk Chair. In 2020, he was also selected to serve on the board of directors for the AHA’s Boston affiliate. Additionally, we’ve earned the distinction as a “Healthy for Good” Champion that allowed us to support the Cooking with Heart at Home program to help vulnerable and elderly residents impacted by COVID-19.
LOCAL RESTAURANT/SMALL BUSINESS SUPPORT
We choose to support our local businesses and restaurants, with programs such as Lunch Support Day, where we sponsor employees to order lunch from a hometown eatery, donation contests, gifts, supplies and social media shout-outs.
Penn Medicine Orphan Disease Center (ODC)
We proudly participate in the annual Penn Medicine Million Dollar Bike Ride to raise money for rare disease research.
Boston Children’s Hospital
Focus Technology plays an active role in raising funds for the Boston Children’s Hospital through participation in the annual Corporate Cup, a fundraiser that promotes fun and friendly competition within the business community through a series of events. Focus Technology has also actively participated in a series of Cradles to Crayons charity events and American Cancer Society fundraisers. We are always looking for new opportunities to give back to the community, and we look forward to continuing to help those in need.
Focus is a proud sponsor of the annual Boston MedFlight golf fundraiser. Every year, their helicopter pilots and EMTs together with a support staff transport approximately 4,700 critically ill or injured patients to lifesaving tertiary care.
