Zonar believes in giving back to the communities that have supported us since our founding in 2001. We focus our efforts on organizations that take on social issues affecting our employees and customers. We’re working to strengthen the growing partnership between Zonar and the communities in which we work and live, and see charitable donation as our corporate responsibility.
We Give as a Company
Each year we sponsor a charity in the name of Zonar and its employees. Sponsorship can include fiscal donation, fundraiser sponsorship, or participation and support of outside fundraising events.
We Empower our Employees
We encourage and support the charitable activities and involvement for our employees. Each Zonar employee is eligible for a Zonar matching contribution in support of his or her favorite charity.
We Work Together
Zonar is built on a commitment to safety and dream for a better future. These values continue to inspire our efforts to reinforce the importance of safety and promote community development. Below are some of the ways we’ve worked toward these goals.
