Telecom for Change Hits $1Million in Donations Thanks to $25,000 Contribution from RDS Solutions

January 20, 2021 | 0 Comments

Phoenix, AZ – RDS Solutions, a premier telecom agency, made a $25,000 donation to Telecom for Change, a 501(c)3 that provides aid to grassroots charities across the U.S. The contribution comes as a welcome and unexpected surprise, pushing the organization’s cumulative fundraising to $1million since its inception in 2014. 

RDS Solutions was recently announced as the winner of the Intelisys’ Drive for Five contest. In the spirit of giving back to local communities and their employees, the company contributed a portion of the award money to Telecom for Change and distributed bonuses to employees at the end of the year. 

“While the telecom agents that make up our great community could effectively be seen as competitors, it’s amazing how we all operate more like family,” said J.R. Vernick, Managing Partner at RDS Solutions. “RDS chose to donate to Telecom for Change for the very deserving causes they support, but more importantly because of the incredible people who put in the work to make a difference.”

“We are extremely grateful for RDS Solutions and their generous donation to Telecom for Change,” said Angie Tocco, Co-Founder and President of Telecom for Change. “We’ve all had to think differently about fundraising this year, and this contribution will help us continue to assist local charities that have worked tirelessly to help their local communities during a tough year. We are constantly amazed at the giving spirit of the telecom community, and we couldn’t do what we do without the continued support of people like J.R. and Darren.”

Telecom for Change’s premier fundraising event, an annual golf tournament during the Channel Partners Conference and Expo, was canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic. This year, virtual fundraising events will be held in conjunction with the event. For more information on Telecom for Change, donating, or becoming a sponsor, visit https://telecomforchange.org/.
