AmpliVox Cares: Community Outreach

AmpliVox works to strengthen and improve the communities we serve, through innovative programs that channel financial support as well as product and expertise assistance to public service organizations.

We care about the world around us, so we have invested in products, people, and services that exemplify that concern. In addition to our hands-on efforts, we also show our dedication to providing care by supporting many causes, events and charities.

Do you have a cause that needs assistance? AmpliVox provides product related services to organizations who might not otherwise have access to those services, public and non-profit organizations that has an educational role, raising awareness to better their community.

We are currently expanding our Community Outreach efforts and accepting new requests from non-commercial organizations for AmpliVox support. If you would like to see if you qualify, please Contact Us with your story and let us know how we can help?
