Acts of Kindness Foundation

What is Acts of Kindness?

 

We are focused on generosity, paying it forward, giving back, and serving our communities. We believe where there are strong communities; there are individuals, families, and businesses all working together for a better world for everyone. “We aspire to see a day where there is not a needy person among us “ (Acts 4:34). 

ZSG’s community engagement theme, which should guide charitable donations and community project decision making is “Deliver Memorable Experiences and Drive Intelligent Change”. As a company, we understand the power of education and the impact that it can have on the lives of individuals and the well-being of communities. By supporting educational programs, we raise aspirations, improve knowledge, and develop a pool of talent for the next generation. While education is a focus, ZSG will respond to local needs, giving to activities that promote the well-being of the disadvantaged, disabled, elderly or underprivileged. ZSG will also consider donating to a natural disaster or health crisis that has consumed local resources and donations to organizations that work to eliminate human suffering.
