“I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver.”
– Maya Angelou

EpiVax’s VaxGivesBack Fund kicked the holiday off by partnering with AIDS Care Ocean State  and Clinica Esperanza/Hope Clinic to distribute gifts to local families. Pictures of the gift giveaway at CEHC last weekend are linked here.

This is the 4th year that a portion of EpiVax’s revenue has been allocated to charitable foundations, both through employee-led charitable giving committee (VaxGivesBack) and by matching YOUR donations. We have discovered that many friends and colleagues of EpiVax are very dedicated philanthropists — thank you for all of your support and for giving back to the community with us!

VaxGivesBack has contributed tens of thousands of dollars to non-profits such as CARE (supporting women and children in Ukraine),  World Central Kitchen (helping displaced individuals in Ukraine and Puerto Rico) and the Tomorrow Fund (supporting children with cancer and their families). Our donations during this post-pandemic period support communities that are still struggling for health and economic equity all over the world.
