CSI Data cares about the community, not just our own community, but the global community. It is our mission to “give back” and make charitable relationships not just as a company but as individuals.
Here are some of the charities that we have made contributions to over the past 10 years.
Camp Good Grief
Camp Good Grief’s mission is to help children who have experienced the death of a loved one. The camp welcomes children between the ages of 5-15 years old. Camp is held in a serene wooded setting in Lake Worth, FL complete with 12 air conditioned cabins, dining facilities, and recreational areas. This past October 2006, Camp Good Grief celebrated it’s 11th anniversary.Most of us are familiar with the scene from the Peanuts cartoon strip in which the character Charlie Brown utters the words “Good Grief!” as he lands flat on his back. He has just attempted, once again, to kick the football Lucy has snatched away at the last minute. With the blessings and approval of Charles Schulz, the creator of the Charlie Brown cartoon, the name “Camp Good Grief” was born.There are times in a child’s life when guidance, protection and understanding are crucial. When a loved one dies many children are left with feelings of vulnerability, loss, and alienation. Camp Good Grief is there to help each child understand and deal with those feelings.
Doctors without Borders
Awarded the 1999 Nobel Peace Prize. Doctors without Borders received an A rating from the American Institute of Philanthropy and an “exceptional” rating from Charity Navigator. They were listed by Worth magazine as one of “America’s 100 Best Charities.” The group provides aid in nearly 60 countries to people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe, primarily due to armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition,exclusion from health care, or natural disasters and provides independent, impartial assistance to those most in need.
Hospice by the Sea
Hospice & HomeCare By The Sea has been serving the community of Palm Beach and Broward counties in FL since 1979. They are an organization dedicated to providing compassionate care for patients living with a life-limiting condition and as well as their families. Hospice By The Sea utilizes highly-skilled professional Care Teams that provide individualized plans of care to meet each patient’s needs. Each team consists of physicians, nurses, nurses’ aides, social workers, trained volunteers, and if desired, spiritual care advisors. Volunteers play a crucial role in Hospice organizations. The average hospice has at least as many, if not more, volunteers than paid staff. A federal mandate states that volunteers must provide a minimum of 5% of total patient care hours. Hospice By The Sea relies heavily on the support of the community to make up the shortfall of what insurance programs do not cover. This community support gives Hospice By The Sea the ability to offer a wide range of services and programs to patients and family members, including bereavement counseling, free child care services for patients with children or grandchildren, ages 2-5, plus the support of the Care Team for all matters related to the terminal diagnosis.

The Innocence Project
The Innocence Project is a non-profit legal clinic affiliated with the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University and created by Barry C. Scheck and Peter J. Neufeld in 1992. The project is a national litigation and public policy organization dedicated to exonerating wrongfully convicted people through DNA testing and reforming the criminal justice system to prevent future injustice. As a clinic, law students handle case work while supervised by a team of attorneys and clinic staff. To date, 226 people in the United States have been exonerated by DNA testing, including 17 who served time on death row. These people served an average of 12 years in prison before exoneration and release.
