Philanthropy, Citizenship, and Community Involvement
As we turn our values of integrity, service, and joy outward, we want to be a company deeply connected to the community it serves. As we strive to give our clients the highest level of service in software quality assurance, we want to give that same level of care to our community.
At Acato, we believe in:
Women in leadership, so we support Altrusa and Girls Inc.,
The future of STEM work, so we support TN Science Bowl,
And giving a hand up to those most in need, so we support The Love Kitchen and Second Harvest Food Bank.
We involve ourselves in the community through Knoxville Chamber of Commerce, Oak Ridge Chamber of Commerce, and by supporting the educational provisions of Tennessee Small Business Development Centers (TSBDC). We are also a sponsor of Oak Ridge High School's Robotics Club!
Acato's President & CEO - Cathy Toth - served as Chair for East Tennessee Economic Council (ETEC) in 2019, Chair for the Oak Ridge Public Schools Education Foundation (ORPSEF), is active in Oak Ridge Breakfast Rotary Club, and was an originating Board Member for Oak Ridge Parks & Recreation (ORP&R).
The rest of our staff routinely volunteer in churches, schools, and Boy Scouts.
