Paycom Donates $64,500 to Veteran-Focused Organizations

Paycom gave $20,000 to Special Operations Warrior Foundation and more than $44,000 to the Courage Foundation. In addition, the company’s employees packed 750 deployment packs for active service men and women. 

In the days leading up to last week’s Veterans Day, Paycom Software donated more than $64,500 to veteran-focused organizations. In addition, employees also packed 750 deployment packs for active service men and women.

“Paycom is honored to serve those who have sacrificed for our nation,” said Justin Long, Paycom executive vice president of operations. “Our employees have been enthusiastic about supporting our veterans, active military members and their families through these initiatives.”

Paycom presented a $20,000 check to Special Operations Warrior Foundation, a nonprofit that ensures comprehensive education from preschool through career to surviving children of Special Operations personnel lost in the line of duty as well as children of all Medal of Honor recipients, along with a variety of other practical programs and services. 

“We appreciate the generous support of Paycom and their employees,” said retired Maj. Gen. Clay Hutmacher, president and CEO of SOWF. “As we serve the children and families of our nation’s heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice, we are grateful for the continued support of caring organizations such as Paycom.”

 The donation is part of Paycom’s employee giving campaign, where employees donate to a variety of local and national causes.  

In addition, Paycom contributed $44,509 to Courage Foundation through a “BurpeesForVets” challenge. Paycom donated $1 for each burpee completed by employees at its Oklahoma City and Grapevine locations during the first week of November. Courage Foundation supports the mental health and lives of veterans living with post-traumatic stress. 

“It’s an honor to partner with Paycom for the BurpeesForVets Challenge,” said Sid Ellington, executive director of Courage Foundation and retired U.S. Navy SEAL. “Beyond demonstrating a deep commitment to supporting our nation’s heroes upon their transition out of military service, Paycom’s creative involvement in this campaign is pioneering a new era of corporate philanthropy.”

Paycom employees also volunteered their time to stuff deployment packs and write thank-you notes to those serving. Employees stuffed more than 750 packs through Paycom’s partnership with United Service Organizations.

Throughout the year, Paycom supports local and national causes through several initiatives that strengthen families and communities, including corporate giving, employee giving and volunteer events.
