The back to school event is just the latest in a growing list of community outreach initiatives sponsored by the Blue Heart Fund, alliantgroup's nonprofit charity. Originally founded in the wake of Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, the Blue Heart Fund has been expanded to encompass numerous charitable causes. Along with fundraising for various philanthropic endeavors, the Blue Heart Fund's primary focus has been promoting exposure to STEM education and careers in our universities, public schools and local communities. Specifically, in the past, the firm has taken steps to expose students to STEM at a younger age, going so far as to take Parker Elementary students to the Houston Museum of Natural Science. In addition to promoting STEM education in K-12 schools, the firm has also given out several STEM-based scholarships over the past year.
Within the last year, alliantgroup has been recognized for its charitable and volunteer efforts, with the firm placing in the Top 10 of the Houston Business Journal's Corporate Philanthropy Awards in the large companies' category.
"Our firm has placed a high priority on giving back to the local community and ensuring the next generation receives all the same opportunities we had," said alliantgroup CEO Dhaval Jadav. "In my view, the best way to help the children of the next generation is to ensure they receive a proper education. Events such as tomorrow's meet and greet at Parker Elementary are a small step in making this a reality."
