Compassion Crew Update

On November 12, Rightpoint was recognized as the "Volunteer Group of the Year - 2013" by the Lawson House YMCA Board and Management team. During the summer nearly 100 Rightpoint team members spent the day painting and sprucing up the Lawson House YMCA, the largest single-room occupancy supportive housing facility in the Midwest. Working with this important community center proved to be a very gratifying experience. Not only was it a great way to give back to our community but it was also great opportunity to support a client – Y of Metro Chicago. 

Recent Compassion Events

  • Rightpoint is midway through our 2nd Annual Movember mustache growing competition to raise awareness and funds for men's cancer issues.

Awards will be presented in categories including "Best in Show," "Tom Selleck: Lifetime Achievement Award", and the "Dirt Lip Award" for the lamest mustache in the room. In 2012, Rightpoint raised more than $1,900 in our Movember campaign, and over half the company participated. To make a donation, visit our team page.
