A Passion for Giving
PayTech believes community outreach is vital and is a loyal supporter of many programs and various charitable organizations. As a company, we developed a policy that ties a percentage of our revenue to charitable contributions ensuring we are not giving what’s left over but are budgeting to actively contribute.

The Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project

We support the ‘Grandmother Basket’ Program so that these women can use the traditional arts of their culture to sell homemade goods and provide for their grandchildren. We provide funding so that children can attend school, have textbooks, clothing, meals and medicine at no cost to the grandmothers.
Denver Rescue Mission
PayTech supports our local community by helping taking care of the homeless. Since 1995, we have given time and money to this great cause. PayTech proudly sponsors the Denver Rescue Missions annual Thanksgiving Turkey Drive. The Mission’s Turkey Drive helps provide a traditional Thanksgiving meal for families and individuals who are struggling with homelessness and poverty. They collect 15,000+ turkeys that will be distributed to various organizations. In addition to our monetary donation, a group of corporate staff spent an afternoon volunteering to collect turkeys for this event. Within three hours they collected over 200 turkeys!
Dress For Success
PayTech is a long-time supporter of Denver’s Dress for Success organization providing purses, jewelry & make-up bags to their program. Our corporate office places bins throughout our office so that our employees can donate items for this organization. The mission of Dress for Success is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life
American Cancer Society
PayTech supports the American Cancer Society and has been instrumental in fundraising efforts for a ‘Relay for Life’ team who raises money for items at auction. At Relay For Life events, communities across the globe come together to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has already taken too much. Relay For Life teams camp out overnight and take turns walking or running around a track or path at a local high school, park, or fairground. Events are up to 24 hours long, and because cancer never sleeps, each team is asked to have at least one participant on the track at all times and family the opportunity to make a real difference they could be a part of to the end.
PayTech is proud to be part of a great cause to find a cure for cancer by joining the World Community Grid which enables anyone with a computer, smartphone or tablet to donate their unused computing power to advance cutting-edge scientific research on topics related to health, poverty and sustainability. PayTech’s computers are linked to the ‘World-Community-Grid’. When our computers are not in use, a screen saver comes on that downloads cancer research data to help doctors and patients with cancer treatments.
