A Message from Our CEO
Since its founding in 2005, Bridgepoint Education has been committed to serving the communities in which we live and work. As an organization, we have formed lasting relationships with community partners so that we can harness our collective energies to make meaningful contributions, particularly in our key areas of focus. Together, we are expanding educational opportunities, helping children thrive, and supporting our nation’s service members and their families.
At the heart of all our corporate citizenship efforts are our employees and students. They not only spend hours each year devoting their time and resources to causes that are important to them, they also come together to represent Bridgepoint Education in local volunteer efforts. In 2016, our employees donated nearly 20,500 hours to volunteer service and more than $120,000 to local charities through our United Way workplace campaign. And, as we do every year, we recognized National Volunteer Month in April with a company-wide Heroes Day:
- In San Diego, our Heroes and students helped revive an open space preserve by planting 400 California sunflowers.
- In Clinton, Heroes and students helped their city stay beautiful by cleaning up trash along a parkway.
- And in Denver, Heroes and students painted and gardened to help rejuvenate an elementary school.
In addition, our employees donated 460 backpacks filled with school supplies to a Title I school in San Diego, and 82 Bridgepoint Education employees volunteered in classrooms and taught Junior Achievement curriculum through our JA Teach Day program.
As always, we thank you for supporting our efforts to create a better community, a better country, and a better world.
Andrew Clark, CEO
