Step Up: Not for Profit. For Community. - Saxum


What is Step Up?

Saxum launched Step Up, a project-based grant program, in 2009 with the sole purpose of making an impact in the communities where we operate. Each year, qualified nonprofits are selected and awarded up to $100,000 in integrated communication services.

Take a Bold Step

We are true partners with our Step Up recipients, and we work closely to provide bold solutions that align with their mission, issue or project to increase community support and awareness. Applicants are encouraged to think boldly when applying and envision how the Step Up grant can elevate the organization to meet their goals.

Selection Process

Saxum employees are passionate about giving back to the community. Saxum works closely with the nonprofit community to identify needs and opportunities to support bold community impact projects.
