The AmberLeaf Foundation is our way to support the communities we work and live in.
We started the AmberLeaf Foundation to provide our employees an opportunity to donate part of their paycheck to a charity of their choosing. Each quarter, one of our nationwide offices selects three charitable organizations within their region as a candidate for our pledge. At our quarterly meeting, all employees have the opportunity to vote for the charity that we will donate to for that quarter. When the votes are tallied, the money that has been collected for that quarter goes directly to the charity with the most votes.
The AmberLeaf Foundation seeks to contribute to organizations that will realize an immediate impact from our contribution.
The following are some recent organizations that the AmberLeaf Foundation made contributions to:
Adam Miller Youth Sports Memorial Fund - Indianapolis, IN
The Jordan YMCA Community School Partnership extends the traditional
YMCA into the heart of neighborhoods, making underutilized school
buildings and facilities accessible to the community primarily during
“out of school” time. The Jordan YMCA places Community Directors at
each school site to work with local advisory committees. Together they
provide the means for gathering resources to provide essential programs
and services to the youth who attend those schools, as well as the
people who live in the communities.
The Program is a true example of community development at the grass
roots level. The YMCA staff person is the liaison working with the
schools to keep facilities open in the evening, on the weekend and
during the summer to once again position schools as focal points of
their communities. Program components include: tutoring, youth sports,
day camps, teen leadership, conflict resolution, family nights, health
fairs, story telling, community nights and violence prevention

Children's Memorial Hospital: Kohl's House - Chicago, IL
Children’s Memorial performs approximately 120 lifesaving transplants each year, averaging one transplant every three days. Located just steps from the hospital is a three-story, wheelchair accessible “home away from home” for transplant patients and their families during treatment and recovery at Children's Memorial. The house offers families a convenient, comfortable place to stay that is close to the transplant team and follow-up care.
Donations are critical to the successful and continued operation of this facility. Families are asked to contribute only $5 a day to cover operational costs and no family is turned away if space is available.
