Commitment to employees, customer advocacy, social responsibility, and product innovation all contribute to a company's success. Infor's commitment to social responsibility is reflected in our offices across the globe, in our customer relationships, in our partnerships, and in our communities. We strive to make a positive impact by giving back to the local communities where our employees live and work.
Infor is pleased to provide our employees with the opportunity to join in the fight against poverty housing through local volunteerism and financial contributions. We're connected to Habitat for Humanity through sponsorship and overall charitable giving, but also in being a provider of Infor10 technology that helps Habitat for Humanity effectively manage its finance and accounting operations globally.
The Habitat for Humanity partnership consists of three areas for employee volunteer participation:
This partnership is a great opportunity for employees globally to help eliminate poverty housing from the world and to promote dignity and hope.
Founded in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller, Habitat for Humanity International is a global nonprofit housing organization that brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope. Since its inception, Habitat for Humanity has served more than 500,000 families by welcoming people of all races, religions, and nationalities to construct, rehabilitate or preserve homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions.

Infor is proud to support UNCF's work in expanding minority education. UNCF plays a critical role in enabling more than 60,000 students each year to attend college.
As part of our support, Infor has been a Gold Sponsor of the "A Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Waste" Gala event for the last two years. The annual event raises funds to help send more young people to college. It brings together more than 1,400 friends and supporters to celebrate UNCF "changing the face of education for 68 years, and honoring those who have blazed the path to giving all Americans the education they need, and that the nation needs them to have."
UNCF (United Negro College Fund) is the nation's largest minority education organization. UNCF provides operating funds for 38 member historically black colleges and universities, scholarships and internships for students at about 900 institutions and faculty and administrative professional training. For 68 years, UNCF has raised more than $3.3 billion to help more than 400,000 students attend college and graduate from college.
Infor is honored to sponsor the The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light The Night Walk, which funds lifesaving research for people battling blood cancer. We encourage our employees to participate in the fundraising that begins with co-workers, friends, and families. These efforts culminate in inspirational evening walks in more than 200 communities each fall across North America. Infor will be a proud sponsor of the Light The Night Walks held at the Cumming Fairgrounds on Saturday, September 22nd and at Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta on Saturday, October 13th.
Through Infor's sponsorship and commitment to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light The Night Walk, employees can participate in the leisurely fundraising walk in several ways:
We encourage every walker to become a Champion For Cures by raising $100 or more to help support the work of hundreds of the world's best researchers to find better therapies and cures for leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma. Through The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light The Night Walks, breakthroughs in new and more effective treatments are possible so that blood cancer patients of all ages live longer, better lives.
