AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- On Tuesday, September 17, the National Association of Professional Employer Organizations (NAPEO) presented a check of $52,345 to Austin, Texas-based charity Anthropos Arts.
Anthropos Arts' mission is to connect low-income Austin students with professional musicians, cultivating confidence, integrity, and life skills through musical instruction and mentorship. NAPEO is a Washington, D.C.-based trade association representing the professional employer organization (PEO) industry which serves nearly four million employees across all fifty states by providing payroll, benefits, workers' comp, regulatory compliance assistance, and other HR services.
NAPEO hosted its 2019 Annual Conference & Marketplace in Austin this week and this donation to Anthropos is part of the NAPEO Gives Back initiative to support the association's conference host cities. NAPEO members supported Anthropos by making donations through a variety of events and activities throughout the conference.
