BETA’s Employee Engagement Committee rolled out its first official Sponsorship and Donations Program in April of 2017. The program encourages employees to suggest causes, organizations, events, or activities that BETA may provide sponsorship dollars or resources towards. We are proud to report that we were able to support the following organizations as a result of this program thus far.
