Foundation, Green Initiatives - Xpera Risk Mitigation and Investigation
Xpera Risk Mitigation and Investigations' charitable contributions center on donating to not for profits and has two founding principles:
- To assist those that can not assist themselves. This may be due to lack of financial means, because they are children, or because they require assistance from persecution.
- Continually find ways to reduce our global environmental foot print.
Since the founding of the company in 1975, the directors of CKR Global have regularly provided pro-bono work to families to assist in finding loved ones. We have also been involved with the recovery of teenagers who were thought lost on the streets. We have supported families that needed to know if their child was actively taking drugs, through the use of Surface Detect. In recent years the company has assisted with pre-employment screening on volunteers and protection for those who are threatened with violence.
Our philanthropy also consists of volunteer time and/or money donated to the following worthy causes:
- POC – Protect our Children Society
- Crime Stoppers
- BC Crime prevention Association
- Association in Defense of the Wrongly Convicted [AIDWYC]
- Salvation Army
- United Way
- The Mustard Seed Organization
- Kids Help Phone
- Calgary Poppy Seed Fund & Veterans’ Food Bank
- Food Banks across Canada [All Provinces]
- Heart & Stroke Foundation
- KIN Canada
- UNICEF Haitian Relief Fund
- Street Angels
- WICC – Women In Insurance Cancer Crusade
- Canadian Cancer Society – Relay For Life
- Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation – CIBC Run for the Cure
- Camp McGovern
- Kimmapii Kids
Other charities have also been taken on as a project in the past and we will look for other worthy causes where our staff can take part both corporately and individually.
Our initiatives to Reduce, Re-use and Recycle were popular before there was a blue box. We consistently reduce the use of paper where possible when providing reports to clients. We send evidence electronically if possible. We also recycle computers, batteries, and equipment. We are committed to these values through education of our staff and awareness with our clients.
Xpera Foundation is funded by public donations, staff volunteers and the financial / technical support of CKR Global.
Criteria For Support
We regularly receive requests by individuals and families to support their cause. Although we are unable to fulfill all requests, the board attempts to provide guidance or assistance where the following criteria are met:
- The individual requiring assistance is under 19 years of age, and their health or safety is in jeopardy.
- The individual or family do not have the financial means to assist themselves.
All other avenues of support have been tried (police, government programs and social support).
- The request is legal.
A committee of staff from CKR Global meets monthly to determine the merits of each request for assistance. Once a request has been approved, the individual or party requesting our services is notified in writing. All projects are performed confidentially, without the attention of media.
CKR Global Foundation supports Wireless AMBER Alerts
Calgary – July 1, 2012 – 16 years ago Amber Hagerman was abducted and murdered in Texas. The AMBER Alert program was born from the desire of her community to ensure similar tragedies did not happen again. The Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association in 2011 has developed a program that can push amber alerts out from Law Enforcement, at no charge and in real time.
CKR Global has expressed support and is signing up over 200 corporate mobile devices to receive Wireless AMBER Alerts in all 10 provinces and three territories. If you have a personal device, more information is available at www.WirelessAMBER.ca, or by texting the keyword AMBER to 26237 directly from your wireless device.
