Last month, the National Breast Cancer Foundation held a ceremony during which Exela proudly donated a check for $5,540, which Exela and its employees raised during Breast Cancer Awareness Month through the #ExelaGivesBack philanthropy program, under which Exela pledged to match the charitable donations made by employees on a dollar-for-dollar basis. The ceremony took place at the Foundation’s Dallas, Texas headquarters. Exela’s Senior Vice President of Human Resources, Carlos Mallen, and Katie Beezley, Marketing Event Manager, were on hand at the ceremony to present the check on behalf of Exela.
Accepting the check on behalf of the Foundation were its Senior Vice President of Strategic Partnerships and Charitable Giving, Ken Ramirez, and Manager of Charitable Gifting and Strategic Partnerships, Candice Boeck.“The National Breast Cancer Foundation is grateful for the support from Exela Technologies and their employees to our mission of Helping Women Now,” Boeck stated. “This donation will enable us to continue providing help and inspiring hope to women affected by breast cancer across the U.S.”
The Foundation’s mission is to provide help and inspire hope to those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education, and support services. According to the Foundation’s website, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer during her lifetime, there is currently no known cure for breast cancer, and early diagnosis is critical to survival. One of the Foundation’s top priorities is educating women on what they can do to be proactive with their breast health.

“We are honored, blessed, and humbled to provide a gift to the Foundation, which has worked tirelessly for decades to support the fight against breast cancer by providing financial grants to research institutions and most importantly gifts of hope to patients and their families,” noted Mallen. Exela has worked with the not-for-profit in prior years and has plans to further its partnership with the Foundation in 2020 and beyond.
Exela’s global presence (basically, we’re everywhere) means two very important things to us. One is that we are wherever you need us to be to advance your digital journey. The other is that we care. We care about people and the work we do. And we care about the future of planet earth and the people who live here. Through our #ExelaGivesBack philanthropy initiative, we turn caring into action.
