Throughout the Southeast, Choate supports many charitable endeavors that vary from office to office but all support a major underlying current at Choate: social responsibility.

Balentine

Much of Balentine’s community impact has focused on improving the lives of impoverished children or those from low-income homes. Chairman Robert Balentine likes to say that the culture of giving back to the community starts at the top. Employees get monthly briefings on potential volunteer projects so they know where to direct their time and talent.

3Ci

At 3Ci, it’s all about “giving forward.” As Owner & CEO Don Barden would say, “giving back assumes you took something. Great leaders ‘give forward,’ without any expectation of anything in return.” It is our mission at 3Ci to continue to invest in and serve communities and causes that positively impact the people of Georgia. You can find us taking 250 U.S. Army Rangers to an Atlanta Hawks game for Christmas every year, or working on our 14th Habitat Home this spring, or donating our time and fundraising dollars to support technology initiatives for women, minorities, and children in Atlanta. At 3Ci we believe in serving our community so much, that we made it our mission statement; “We exist to ignite the success of our people, customers, business partners, and community.” How can we serve you?
