COMMITMENT TO COMMUNITY

At Aristotle, we are committed to active participation in our communities both locally and internationally. We partner with a number of outstanding organizations and nonprofits that advance health, education, the arts and human services not only to support their valuable missions but also to enrich our own lives through teamwork and continuous learning. From walking to support St. Jude to mentoring youth to volunteering in neighborhoods in great economic need, Aristotle strives to make a meaningful difference in our communities.

Each Holiday Season, Aristotle makes a monetary donation on behalf of our clients to a charity determined by our employees. In the past, our contributions have included Disabled American Veterans and the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.

American Red Cross

In 2017, Aristotle contributed to the American Red Cross on behalf of our clients in support of relief efforts following the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. The funds will be distributed to help rescue, shelter, feed and heal the impacted communities in Texas.
