A nationwide impact

As one of our Core Values established in 2002, Stewardship and Community is at the heart of who we are at Kforce. In addition to the organizations we support, our people have built lasting relationships with a variety of charitable organizations that they are passionate about. Through nationwide initiatives such as our Day of Giving and disaster relief efforts, our Kforce family is steadfast in making a lasting impact together.

Day of Giving

On our annual Day of Giving, our employees volunteer with the causes they are most passionate about. We encourage all Kforcers to get out, give back and make an impact in our communities. Previously, this event was held at organizations located near our Kforce headquarters in Tampa, Florida. In 2018, we fulfilled our dream of taking Day of Giving nationwide, encouraging Kforcers across the country to come together and serve the community. 

On November 2, 2018, Kforce held its third annual Day of Giving. A total of 1,656 Kforcers around the United States answered the call to give back to their local communities through events ranging from packing and distributing food to assisting job seekers with their resumes and interview prep. This one day of making an impact resulted in 5,402 hours volunteered across 71 events.

To learn about our contribution to the community and what went into making this event possible, we spoke to Stewardship and Community co-chair and founder of Day of Giving, Crystal Early.

Disaster relief efforts

With several offices throughout southeastern United States, we understand what it takes to rebuild after hurricanes. As a firm, we are committed to providing long-term relief to those in need after a storm. Over the years, we have rallied together to assist in community development after devastating storms like Hurricane Michael in 2018, when we packed 10,368 meals and donated supplies that were hand-delivered by our employees to different areas in the panhandle and Panama City.

Stewardship and community through the years

We aim to enrich lives and strengthen the communities we serve. Giving back to the community has always been a part of life at Kforce, but in 2008, our Stewardship and Community Committee (SCC) was organized to make it easier for our Kforce family to help people in need. The SCC allows Kforcers to have a platform where they could speak up about the causes they are most passionate about and inspire others to get involved.
