IPSA is committed to supporting organizations that make a difference in the communities in which we live and work. As a concerned corporate citizen, IPSA and our employees have supported many organizations, including the following:
SEAL-Naval Special Warfare Family Foundation
Founded in 2008, the SEAL-NSW Family Foundation is a nonprofit, 501(c)3 organization that raises funds and awareness for special programs in direct support of the Naval Special Warfare (NSW) families on a local, national and global scale. In 2012, the Foundation raised $2.2 million in funds, including more than $500,000 for the Ty Woods and Glen Dougherty Memorial Funds. More than 90 percent of all funding supports direct services, and remaining funds directly support program administration and Foundation operations.
Additionally, the Foundation actively supports a number of programs including NSW Kids, Gold Star Families, The Global Spouse Sisterhood, Family Readiness Groups, Graduation Ceremonies, and a host of other programs designed to ensure the warriors and families of Naval Special Warfare stay healthy and resilient in this era of persistent deployments.
JDRF is the leading global organization focused on Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) research. Driven by passionate, grassroots volunteers connected to children, adolescents, and adults with this disease, JDRF is now the largest charitable supporter of T1D research. The goal of JDRF research is to improve the lives of all people affected by T1D by accelerating progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating, and preventing T1D. JDRF collaborates with a wide spectrum of partners who share this goal.
Together with millions of supporters, the American Cancer Society (ACS) saves lives and creates a world with less cancer and more birthdays by helping people stay well, helping people get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back.
The American Cancer Society is a nationwide, community-based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem. Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, the ACS has 12 chartered Divisions, more than 900 local offices nationwide, and a presence in more than 5,100 communities.
The MS Society provides services to people with multiple sclerosis and their families and funds research to find the cause and cure for this disease. MS Society has a membership of 28,000 and they are the only national voluntary organization in Canada that supports both MS research and services.
Fight Bladder Cancer
One of the key aims of Fight Bladder Cancer (FBC) is to foster and encourage a huge worldwide bladder cancer community, where people can find support and information. Initially a local support group, it soon became clear that the lack of available support for bladder cancer patients and their families was a national problem, and needed to be tackled on a much wider scale. Although FBC is still a small charity, they have registered status with the Charity Commissioners, and a team of Trustees whose job it is to ensure they carry out their objectives.
