CapitalSource is committed to giving back to the communities in which we work and live.
It is our responsibility to support our community, particularly those in the most underserved areas. Through our Community Reinvestment program, local community efforts, and employee service we support non-profit organizations that work in areas such as education, workforce development, financial literacy, elder abuse prevention, and healthcare
Through our matching fund program and dedicated volunteer hours, our employees are encouraged to give back through financial contributions and volunteer work.
We recognize our employees' generosity by matching employee donations to qualifying charitable organizations.
We encourage employees to share their time and talents with 16 hours of paid daytime leave for volunteer work each year. In addition, throughout the year, we sponsor a variety of corporate-wide service programs as well as department service outings.
Here is a sampling of programs we've served over the years:
