ELYON’s community involvement is currently focused on three major areas:

  • Support for MBEs, Veterans-owned business and aspiring business owners
  • Support for young professionals and minority students
  • Corporate Volunteer and Giving Program to local non-profit organizations

Support of MBE, Veteran Businesses and aspiring business owners

Led by no less than the company’s founder/owner Carmen Nazario, ELYON strives to support, promote and partner with our community and its emerging MBEs. ELYON has established corporate goals and scorecards for our support of minority, women and veteran owned small businesses, and aspiring business owners in our community.

Support for Minority Students

ELYON has sponsored scholarships in partnership with the Hispanic Metropolitan Chamber of Oregon and SW Washington for the past 15 years.   The Latino students ELYON sponsors all choose University / College STEM study programs. ELYON recognizes that the future—our collective future, the very meaning of the term ‘sustainability’— lies with the younger generation.

Corporate Volunteer and Giving Program

ELYON’s civic works has been expanding beyond enterprise and student support. ELYON has an established corporate giving and volunteer program that allows our corporate staff to use their skills to impact and improve the quality of life in their community.

ELYON also contributes directly to specific causes that affect our community and staff. In 2014 ELYON directly supported by way of volunteer or financial support, the Children’s Cancer Association, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, The Xchange Recovery Center and other local community non-profit organizations.
