CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
At Prophix, we don’t believe in little ideas. We aim to create a lasting impact on the global community, through meaningful programs and projects.
Driven by Prophix employees, our approach to Social Responsibility started as a grassroots movement to now supporting worthy causes around the globe. It’s not just what we do, it’s who we are!
Since 1987, our CEO Paul Barber has championed the spirit of giving by organizing a large yearly donation of toys and turkeys to the Salvation Army. This tradition has continued nearly 30 years later with support from our CSR committee.
In 2015, Phil Gravel, our Vice President of Professional & Client Services, decided to pursue his passion for making the world a better place by submitting a proposal for a formal Corporate Social Responsibility charter and committee.
There were two central tenets in Phil’s proposal that continue to inform our CSR efforts today:
In its first year, the CSR committee donated over $100,000 to support charitable projects in Kenya and India and improve the lives of those suffering from homelessness, women hurt by violence, and children afflicted with cancer and poverty in local communities.
Today, our committee has 15 members who are responsible for promoting, organizing, and supporting our ongoing CSR initiatives.
Our commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility extends to our planet. In 2019, we launched a comprehensive recycling, waste, and compost program to reduce the environmental impact of our offices.
Each quarter that we hit our sales targets, we donate $50,000 to a non-profit organization that’s making a difference in the world. Employees can nominate causes they are passionate about and the final project is chosen by popular vote.
This allows us to support a wide variety of charitable initiatives that matter deeply to our employees.
Creating lasting change take a community – and that’s why our employees are the driving force behind our philanthropy. We aim to support the initiatives that matter most to our staff by giving them opportunities to get involved and have their voice heard.
We reward employees for living our philosophy through:

The Palestine Children’s Relief Fund was established in 1992 by concerned humanitarians in the USA to bring injured and sick children free medical care they could not get locally. Since then, they have sent over 2,000 sick and injured children for free medical care, as well as sponsored hundreds of volunteer medical teams from all over the world to treat tens of thousands of sick and injured youths in local hospitals. PCRF also has built two pediatric cancer departments in Palestine and has several more major programs and projects taking place to help support the development of a sustainable health-care system there. We are a grassroots organization depending on the support of thousands of volunteers all over the world to help us achieve our humanitarian mission.
