Letter from Keith

President/CEO

Everyone deserves a fair shot at a successful life.

The future of our youth is not only very important, it is also delicate. The potential to succeed in life is present in every child, like a seed ready to start growing.  Just like a seed can only grow when placed in the right environment, our youth often needs help bringing their potential to fruition. That is why we created the Power2Change Foundation; a foundation with the purpose of enabling young people to tap into their full potential.

As you take the time to explore this site, you can read about our passion and how we pursue our goals. The people behind the Power2Change Foundation are all employees of CSI Enterprises and we come into work every day eager to make a positive impact on our community and make a difference in children’s lives.

Passionate

We are passionate about helping our communities throughout the world, and providing opportunities for under-served children to grow and succeed in life. With the Power2Change Foundation, we want to support and enable initiatives stimulating the academic, athletic and personal development of young people around the globe, with technology, funds, time and knowledge. The Power2Change Foundation formalizes the commitment its founding company, CSI Enterprises, has always shown with supporting philanthropic efforts. CSI’s culture of giving extends through every employee and into the communities in which the company operates.

the 2 in power2change

THE ‘2’ IN POWER2CHANGE

The ‘2’ in the name represents the basis points (BPS) that will be donated every year from the revenue earned on payment transactions that the company processes. Considering that billions of dollars are processed through CSI’s award-winning globalVCard paysystems platform every year, the potential impact will be life changing for recipients.

Power2Change history

History

The Power2Change Foundation was created in 2016 by CSI Enterprises. While corporate giving has been core to the company’s operations since its founding in 1989, the formation of the Power2Change Foundation provides the opportunity to give more strategically and to better organize, focus and track the impact of CSI’s philanthropic efforts.

Our Mission and Vision

Our Mission: To serve children of the world as their global Power2Change Foundation that fosters their creativity, entrepreneurial spirit, and support of athletics and connects them with their peers worldwide through the universal language of love and respect for others.

 

Our Vision: Widespread prosperity and global peace can be attained because early creativity can be learned and empathy can be taught.

 

We Believe in the Theory of Positive CHANGE for Youth in the World:

 

  • We believe children are creators, innovators, sports heroes and architects of the future, not merely pupils and consumers.
  • Through the Power2Change Foundation’s support, we believe children will be empowered to CHANGE and enhance their creativity, entrepreneurialism and athletic desires every day to fulfill their lives.
  • Through the spirit of athletics and after school creative activities, the Power2Change Foundation seeks to inspire and encourage individual growth. We believe the building blocks of teamwork, confidence and cooperation help create happy lives.
