Corporate social responsibility
Serving communities & people in need
Supporting and serving the communities in which we work and live is a fundamental part of good corporate citizenship at Bartech. We gladly donate resources and time to a wide range of local and global organizations committed to improving the health, education and professional opportunities of people in need. The following is but a brief highlight of some of those organizations we are supporting:
Children's Miracle Network
CMN is one of the most well-known and successful charities. The organization has raised over $4.7 billion dollars since 1983. These donations go to supporting research and training, purchasing equipment and paying for care to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible. 62 children enter a Children's Miracle Network Hospital every minute - one child a second.
Susan G Komen
The Susan G. Komen foundation is the largest breast cancer organization in the United States. The goal of the non-profit organization is to promote research, education, advocacy, health services and social support programs throughout more than 50 countries - until the day when breast cancer has been eradicated from the earth.
Wreaths Across America
This organization is in place to remember, honor and teach about the service and sacrifices of our veterans, military and their families. The goal is to place a wreath on every veteran's grave. Wreaths Across America also conducts several other programs to honor our Veterans, including the popular "thanks a Million" campaign which distributes cards to Veterans all over the country.
P.A.W.S. of Michigan
P.A.W.S. (or Precious Animal Welfare Society) promotes a humane and responsible treatment of all animals. It is there mission to protect and care for homeless animals by placing them with foster families until permanent homes are available.
Barat Child and Family Services
Bartech employees help the abused and/or neglected girls who live at the Barat House in Detroit celebrate Christmas each year through personal gifts for the residents and a fully funded Christmas dinner. Throughout the year, Bartech also provides housewares and other gifts to support the operations of the facility and to encourage the growth, development and happiness of its residents.
Bartech Clean Water Initiative
The mission of this Bartech humanitarian program established in 2008 is to provide health care, clean water, food, education, disease control and other essential needs primarily in Africa, Haiti and other developing countries. Bartech is funding the construction of wells that will provide clean, safe drinking water to adults and children.
Dress for Success
Supporting women jobseekers who cannot afford to purchase business attire for job interviews, Bartech employees annually donate suits, blouses and accessories to help unemployed women in the quest to return to the workplace.
Rotary International Polio Eradication Program
Since 1985, Rotary International has worked to raise funds to eliminate polio throughout the minority populations of the Third World. The Rotary Foundation has given more than $200 million to purchase a five-year supply of polio vaccine. More than 100 Third World nations have received grants, resulting in 600 million children being immunized.
Share Products Program
John W. Barfield, Bartech’s Chairman Emeritus, founded the Share Products Program in 1992 to provide assistance for homeless Americans. Share marketed 26 items of food and other consumer goods through Meijers, Kroger, Spartan and other national retail chains across the country. One hundred percent of all profits received were contributed to the Salvation Army and other agencies in the form of free nights’ lodging and meals for homeless Americans.
Spaulding for Children
Spaulding for Children, headquartered in Southeastern Michigan, is the only agency in the United States that specializes in finding and training adoptive families for special needs children, most of whom are minorities. Spaulding has found homes for more than 800 children since the agency was founded in 1968.
Spotlight: African American artists
In its corporate and branch offices, Bartech proudly displays a collection of original works by Detroit and Michigan-based African American artists. The program not only helps provide a market for up-and-coming artists, but also highlights their achievements by “telling their story” to those who visit Bartech facilities.
Youth career opportunity development
Bartech has designed and managed numerous programs designed to help minority youth cultivate career opportunities in technical fields, such as engineering. Focused on assisting Detroit/Pontiac youth, our first program, the Bartech Cooperative Drafting Training Program, was in operation from 1983 through 1988. More than 80 percent of our students graduated from the program, which was underwritten by General Motors.
