Empowering social service agencies to do more

Navigate Gives Back began in 2017 to encourage voluntarism among the staff. The 2020 pandemic affected these in-person efforts, and our way of giving evolved.

$3.1 million and counting…

We believe in giving back to the community. Throughout the years, Navigate has always aimed to donate time and money to various organizations that live up to our vision.

In 2021, Navigate awarded $2-million in Navigate Gives Back Grants to organizations across four states.

The Navigate Board

Our Board wanted to do more in response to the social needs created by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our members believe local social service agencies are best-equipped to meeting those needs.

Eligible Projects

Many families now struggle to find housing they can afford. Our Board is focused on helping agencies with projects related to housing affordability.

Four States

Navigate has offices in Alabama, Connecticut, Mississippi, and Virginia. The Board has distributed and will continue to distribute millions of dollars in funding to local agencies.

Eligible Programs

Food insecurity is a growing issue across the nation. The Board aims to help households have enough food for active, healthy lives.
