At Resource 1, we know we wouldn’t be who we are today without the support of our communities. That’s why we operate with a deep sense of philanthropy, getting involved when and where we can to give back.
OPEF is a privately funded nonprofit organization that brings educational programs, including VEX Robotics, to students in the K-8 range. We know that Resource 1’s financial support and commitment will help develop great scientific minds for our future. STEM and robotics will be a large part of the future when these children graduate from college.
Resource 1 was delighted to partner with Pritzker College Prep recently on their inaugural Sophomore Career Exploration Day. The school is located on the West side of the City of Chicago, where over 90% of their graduated students are the first in their families to attend college. Resource 1 is excited to partner up with Pritzker College Prep for future career events and introduce more students to the world of Information Technology.
Driven by strong philanthropic values, Resource 1 regularly encourages its team members to get involved in their communities. Recently, Account Executive Kristen Long had an eye-opening experience during her mission trip to the Dominican Republic.
Anastasia Valentine, Executive Vice President at Resource 1, is the founder of the “Do It To the Crowd” fundraising event, held annually by the ladies of Alpha Sigma Alpha at Northern Illinois University. Funding the Special Olympics, the fundraiser was created by Valentine 26 years ago. We’re proud that the Resource 1 team lives out our core values to give back to our local communities.
