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.

$5.8 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 2022, Navigate awarded $3-million in Navigate Gives Back Grants to organizations across four states.

In 2021, we awarded $2-million to nonprofits.
