For more than 15 years, we have been a strong supporter of Frontier College. Founded more than a century ago, Frontier College is a national organization that mobilizes more than 3,000 volunteers each year to promote literacy among disadvantaged populations, with a special emphasis on aboriginal youth. Together we currently support Frontier College’s summer literacy camps, where dozens of summer camps in six provinces focus on building literacy skills among aboriginal children and youth.
In the past we have also helped fund programs such as Beat the Street, which helps youth earn their high-school diplomas and acquire computer skills training. We’ve spearheaded fundraising initiatives such as the 10K road run in the 1990s, and more recently, we partnered with Microsoft to create an online learning portal that connects the college’s tutors to students living in remote locations. With the efforts of our staff and our fundraising campaigns, we have raised more than $800,000 to date for the college’s programs.

As a Compugen home-grown program, our Green4Good program is a double winner. When organizations recycle their used IT assets through the program, we divert all the pieces from landfill, either by refurbishing and reselling the equipment, or by completely recycling it. The refurbished equipment is either donated to an organization in need, or the equipment is sold and the proceeds are directed to charity. Since we began the Green4Good program in 2010, more than $2,500,000 has been donated to charity and over 1,000,000 pieces of equipment have been saved from landfill.
