In honor of ALKU turning 15, ALKU and the ALKU Foundation will continue their mission to give back to the community by making 15 generous donations to non-profits that our employees are passionate about.
BAGLY, Special Olympics Massachusetts, and Tennessee Kids Belong are best known for their positive impact on the youth in their communities through mentoring. Mentoring is at the heart of ALKU, the ALKU Foundation, and the three non-profits below.
The Boston Alliance of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Youth (BAGLY), is a youth-led, adult-supported social support organization committed to social justice and creating, sustaining, and advocating for programs, policies, and services for the LGBTQ+ youth community. To date, BAGLY has served over 30,000 youth through their approach and historic practice.
Special Olympics Massachusetts is committed to providing sports training and competition for all children and adults with intellectual disabilities. Their commitment to inclusion extends beyond the sports arena and into schools, community organizations, and local businesses. By fostering an environment of empowerment and compassion, we are not only transforming the experiences of their athletes but also influencing social perceptions and attitudes towards intellectual disabilities.
8,991 Tennessee kids are in foster care right now. Tennessee Kids Belong works to improve the experiences and outcomes for kids in foster care. Their Belong Project™ provides kids with a fun and memorable day, during which their stories are captured on video to share online, with the goal of helping connect them with forever families.
