ATB Technologies is passionate about providing strategic IT support that’s effective, efficient, and always reliable. But our enthusiasm extends beyond providing exceptional customer service for our clients. We also strive to be a supportive, philanthropic partner for our St. Louis community. For ATB, our charitable outreach is all about making a positive impact in our community.

“About 40% of our clients are in the nonprofit space,” said Christopher Miller, ATB Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We find it important to make an impact back to them. Our philanthropic work starts from the standpoint of our pricing model, which is more fair and tailored for the nonprofits we work with. We also try to impact the community from a financial standpoint, and we support galas and fundraisers and different parts of the development initiative of those organizations.”

Since 2019, ATB has donated more than $160,000 to several nonprofits in the St. Louis region, including Family Forward, Saint Vincent Home for Children, and Youth in Need.

ATB enjoys sponsoring events for its nonprofit partners, as well as participating in them. Such opportunities provide ATB a chance to support an important cause while also providing team-building for its employees and demonstrating how employees can impact others in a low-pressure environment. 

“We like when they have something like a golf tournament we can sponsor, and we can get our team out for a day of team-building,” Miller said. “We’re trying to expose our team to the nonprofit arena, and we find that to be the best way. This provides us a way to engage our employees and for them to see some of the impact we’re having.”

Another way ATB is encouraging its team members to engage in philanthropy is through a pilot program called ATB Gives Back, which grants each ATB employee $250 to donate to a 501(c)(3) charity of their choice. The program is managed by the St. Louis Community Foundation and is designed to assist businesses in making a bigger impact in the community.

“We’re doing ATB Gives Back as a way of making dollars available to each of our employees to make their own personal decisions in the types of organizations they want to support,” Miller said. “We know our clients, and we know the nonprofits we have traditionally supported, but we also want that feedback from our employees about what they care about because everyone’s different in their passions or the reasons for supporting certain organizations.”

Right now the ATB team is gearing up to sponsor the Ascension Charity Golf Classic at Norwood Hills Country Club for the third year in a row. The event supports three high-impact organizations in St. Louis: the Boys & Girls Club of Greater St. Louis, Marygrove, and the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis.  

“The Ascension Classic raised over a million dollars last year alone,” Miller said. “We want to be part of that because we see its positive impact on the community.”

ATB’s philanthropic work has not gone unnoticed. The company has twice earned philanthropy awards from the St. Louis Business Journal. But ATB doesn’t do it for the accolades. We do it for the impact. 

“The idea that ‘to whom much is given, much is expected’ lives and runs true,” Miller said.  “I think everyone has a responsibility to have some type of impact.”

ATB is honored to partner with so many outstanding nonprofits impacting children, families, and the St. Louis region at large, both in philanthropic ways and through managed IT support and strategic counsel.
