The Worldwide ERC® Foundation for Workforce Mobility was established in 2004 with a mission to energize the global community through charitable giving. Its vision is that all communities touched by global mobility are actively aware of, inspired by and engaged in our charitable efforts, worldwide.
The foundation has contributed nearly $400,000 in cumulative charitable donations since its inception more than 10 years ago, and in 2017 donated $10,250 to its named charity, Family Promise, a life-transforming provider of transition services for individuals affected by homelessness and poverty.
Join us at an upcoming Worldwide ERC® Foundation charitable event! Mark your calendar for the Foundation Gala and Walk on October 17 and 19, respectively, happening in Seattle in conjunction with the 2018 Global Workforce Symposium.
