At AEPG, we believe that Your Accountable Advocate™ is more than our tagline. It represents our fiduciary responsibility to our clients – and our corporate social responsibility to "give back" to the communities in which we and our clients operate, both in NJ and across the country.
Since our founding in 1980, AEPG has been actively involved in a variety of charitable organizations and initiatives both locally and nationally.
As a caring employer, we also support our employees' individual efforts by matching their charitable donations.
Lastly, as part of our process we develop a deep relationships with our clients and therefore we also view you as part of the AEPG family and make every effort to participate in or contribute to the charities that mean the most to you as well.
A sampling of the organizations we support is provided below.
Joseph E. Enright Foundation
The Joseph E. Enright Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to educating the community about melanoma and other skin cancers as well as working with medical professionals to prevent this deadly skin cancer. AEPG's president, Steven W. Kaye, is a member of the board.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation
Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has enriched the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions through its wish-granting work.
The Mission Continues is the only national nonprofit challenging post-9/11 veterans to rebuild a sense of purpose through community service. Many veterans struggle to find purpose at home without the structure, mission and camaraderie of a military unit. The Mission Continues does not offer charity; rather, we challenge returning service members to utilize their tremendous skills and leadership to continue serving our country at home. Through service, veterans find renewed strength and purpose while building stronger communities. Our mission is fueled by a deep belief that our veterans are assets and are poised to become the next greatest generation.
In 1991, a group of parents, staff and friends joined together to form The Institute for Children with Cancer and Blood Disorders. The original group has flourished into Embrace Kids Foundation, an impressive organization comprising parents of patients, working professionals, community leaders and college/high school students. Embrace Kids Foundation provides over $1 million in services to children and families throughout the greater New Jersey area. The child patients range in age from infancy to young adulthood and encompass all ethnic and social backgrounds. Our family programs and support services are available at absolutely no cost to the family. We are committed to enhancing the quality of life and relieving emotional, spiritual and financial concerns. Our support services include the David E. Zullo Pediatric Palliative Care (PACCT) Program, the Embrace Kids Learning Center, Embrace Kids with Sickle Cell Initiative, a Financial Assistance Program and other Family Support Services.
