World Vision: Making an Impact on the World

Codilis & Associates gives time and money to improve its community, but the firm’s charity reaches beyond its own city of Chicago. Codilis & Associates is a supporter of World Vision, a group dedicated to ending poverty around the world.

According to World Vision, 1.3 billion people across the globe live on less than $1.25 per day. World Vision’s aim is to improve the economic well-being of families to break the cycle of poverty. The organization offers microfinancing to enable individuals to start a business. Specialized training is also offered in communities to help improve farming or gardening skills, giving people the ability to provide more food for their families.

World Vision’s 46,000 staff members work in nearly 100 countries to eradicate poverty. World Vision members also work to improve access to clean water, education, and medical aid, as well as responding to natural disasters. Word Vision raises money through direct donations, corporate gifts, fundraisers, and by allowing people to sponsor individual children.
