Celebrations In The United States

Our Knowsters were incredibly generous this holiday season and gave back to our local communities in a big way! KnowBe4 partnered with EPIC, Empath Partners in Care, a nonprofit integrated network of care supporting those challenged by chronic and advanced illness in the Tampa Bay region. Knowsters in the U.S. sponsored 96 children to help bring them holiday cheer! The Fun & Shenanigans team dropped off the donations and met with Joy, EPIC Executive Director. Ally, Curator of Antics and Hijinks on our Fun & Shenanigans team, says, "This was our second year partnering with EPIC to help spread holiday cheer to local children. I am always in such awe at our Knowster's giving hearts and their willingness to participate. EPIC is a great resource in our community and we are so happy to be able to work alongside them all year round!"

EPIC Donation

The Knowster Parents Employee Resource Group donated tons of toys to a local organization, We Rock The Spectrum, a sensory gym that provides an inclusive, safe, nurturing, and fun environment for kids. The group also presented the owner with a $1,600 check for the facility! Our Knowsters were so proud to donate to this amazing facility and know how much of an impact this organization makes to families in our local community. In addition to the donations to We Rock The Spectrum, the Knowster Parents Employee Resource Group also donated over 200 pounds of clothing to a local nonprofit organization, Clothes To Kids. Amazing job Knowsters!
