Charity, which is known as our “4th C.” Our Founder believed strongly in the principle, “Love your neighbor.” FTI strives to encourage and support our employees to develop and maintain a spirit of charity by volunteering their time, attention, efforts, and resources to any of a wide range of charitable or community outreach activities. We want to take the time to share with you one of the great charitable things that are going on this month at FTI. March is Women’s History Month. We have a very special activity going on this month to honor this theme and provide support for our active servicewomen.

Here at FTI we are excited to honor Women’s History Month which originated as a national celebration in 1981 when Congress passed legislation recognizing Women nationwide. Since 1995, presidents have issued a series of annual proclamations designating the month of March as “Women’s History Month.” These proclamations celebrate the contributions women have made to the United States and recognize the specific achievements women have made over the course of American history in a variety of fields.

In honor of Women’s Month, the 4th C  (click here to learn more about the 4th C) will be partnering with Troopster to send care packs to deployed servicewomen overseas our “Sheroes”. Our goal is to help them send 5,000 care packs. Each pack costs around $15 plus shipping. Help us reach our goal in two ways:


1.  Give directly to Troopster using this link and the 4th C will match every $15 donation for a box with a matching donation and cover the shipping.

2.  Purchase a gift basket for Mother’s Day delivery through Arena Farms ( obsessed with organic luxury by ArenaFarms on Etsy )  and mention FTI in your note at checkout.  Arena Farms is run by Charlie Arena, who is a young female African American entrepreneur who has created these amazing gift baskets and has agreed to donate a portion of the proceeds to Troopster.  You can also make a donation of product to Shero through Arena Farms.  This is a great opportunity to recognize and honor those special women in your own life while supporting a great cause and a young female entrepreneur.

FTI’s culture is led by the 4 Cs: Core Values, Commitment, Compassion, and Charity.  Charity is the FTI 4th C, loving your neighbor in times of need, supporting our veterans, and helping children.  During these uncertain times of great need, FTI has made a couple of responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.  We have supported local food banks in our office locations, and we have given support to the First Responders through the Troopster organization in Virginia.

Military nonprofit, Troopster, is poised to help America’s COVID-19 front line heroes by sending PPE medical essential kits.
The outreach plans to raise enough contributions to send 50,000 medical kits containing PPE equipment, protein bars, snacks, and other items to Covid-19 caretakers across the country.

April is Child Abuse Prevention Awareness month. During this time, Virginia Beach CASA sponsors the Pinwheels for Prevention Campaign, partnering with local businesses, organizations and individuals throughout Hampton Roads to bring community awareness to the needs of abused and neglected children.

The pinwheel is the national symbol for child abuse prevention. The pinwheel’s whimsical and carefree attributes serve as a reminder of the great childhoods we want for all children. By planting pinwheels on the lawns of local businesses and residences, we rally together to show solidarity in our commitment to keeping children safe and free from abuse and neglect.

How is FTI involved?

For the second year in a row, FTI is supporting VB CASA across Hampton Roads as a Presenting Sponsor for the Pinwheels for Prevention Campaign. FTI’s sponsorship helps VB CASA to continue to spread awareness, train, and support VB CASA in their mission to recruit, train, and supervise competent volunteers dedicated to advocating for the needs of abused and neglected children currently in court proceedings. VB CASA’s work promotes safe, permanent homes for all children and seeks to educate the community concerning the needs of abused and neglected children.

Alzheimer’s is a disease that many in our own have a company have had direct contact with through the care or loss of a loved one. FTI believes making a difference in causes that are close to our employee’s hearts. Every dollar FTI raised benefited those affected by Alzheimer’s disease in our community. The Alzheimer’s Association, which FTI partnered with, is a global organization, working to advance care, support and research across the world. From face-to-face support to online education programs and promising worldwide research initiatives.

The 2019 Walk to End Alzheimer’s- Butler, Warren & Clinton Counties was Saturday, September 14th at Voice of America Park in West Chester Ohio. FTI employees along with friends and family participated in walk and ceremony events. The Greater Cincinnati walk raised 76% of its goal for funding. Through the FTI 4th C we were able to raise and donate $5300.00 towards the efforts of finding a cure.

THANK YOU, to all who supported this campaign.   T-shirts are being shipped to the address of your order.  Please contact Bonfire, the distributor with issues.  Be sure to send any pictures of your FTI Dayton Strong T-shirts in action to; and keep the awareness going.

About the Campaign: In recent months the Dayton Area has been hit with some devastating tragedies.  This past Memorial Day the Dayton (Miami Valley area) was hit with several tornados that destroyed many businesses and homes.  Then in recent days, the Oregon District in Dayton, Ohio was hit with a horrible act of gun violence taking the lives of many.  FTI stands in support of our local Dayton community and the victims hit by both of these tragedies. A local term for solidarity with the community is “Dayton Strong.”

In an effort to show support for the Dayton Area (click for more information about the 4th C here), FTI is running a T-Shirt campaign, where you can purchase a T-shirt and FTI 4th C will give 100% of that purchase to benefit the victims of these tragedies through the outreaches of Dayton Habitat for Humanity and the Dayton Foundation.

The local chapter of Habitat for Humanity is reaching out to many in the local area who were affected by the Dayton Tornados.  FTI supports Habitat for Humanity. Be assured your purchase will make a difference in the lives of those suffering in the Dayton area.  Kim Nicol the marketing manager for the Habitat for Humanity said, “One hundred percent of the proceeds raised will be used to provide affordable homeownership opportunities for families in the Habitat program and to complete critical repairs for homeowners in Greene and Montgomery counties who are uninsured or underinsured.” Likewise, the Dayton Foundation is reaching out the victims of the Oregon District Shooting and one hundred percent of the donated funds go to helping the victims and their families.

Please give and support those in need.

FTI is “Dayton Strong.”

Frontier Technology Inc. believes in honoring and giving respect to our Veterans. The Dayton Honor Flight is local outreach that seeks to honor our Armed Forces by taking veterans of the WWII, Korean Era, and Vietnam Era wars to see their national memorials in Washington, DC. Special priority is given to terminally ill veterans from any of these wars.  These trips are provided at no cost to all qualified veterans which includes airfare and bus transportation while in DC. In September 2017, FTI became the first company to fully sponsor an entire Dayton Honor Flight. 95 Veterans and their volunteers enjoyed a fun-filled and emotional day of being honored for their service, while being in our nation’s capital. Recently Al Bailey, President, and Kelley Cox, Treasurer, visited FTI’s headquarters in Beavercreek, Ohio to deliver a personal thanks for FTI’s participation this past year in the FTI Dayton Honor Flight program. FTI currently is in the process of planning their next Dayton Honor Flight in 2019. Be sure to visit again for more information on this exciting outreach in 2019.
