Our staff are highly motivated by being able to improve the health and education of those in need. Since our inception, we have provided funding and resources to both non-profit associations and scientific foundations, helping to bring healthcare and education where needed.
Employees enjoy participating in many charity events to generate awareness of health issues and raise funds for health and education projects.
Participation in charitable events
VCLS collaborators participate in charitable events throughout the year.
In 2021, our team in Denmark supported 2 charities – “Families with children with cancer” and “The Christmas Seal”. The latter was originally set up as a Christmas stamp which was sold to help fund orphanages.
In the US, our team gave money for food and other essential items to the Food Bank Network of Somerset County, as part of the Somerset Country Adopt-A-Family program. What’s more, our team in Boston joined Project Bread’s The Walk for Hunger, raising $3,000 to help bring COVID-19 food relief to families across Massachusetts.
At the start of 2022, VCLS signed up with the WHO Foundation of the United Nations to support Ukrainian families affected by the war. For each employee’s donation, the company matched the same amount for this important cause.

Activity with Hands On CSR NGO
VCLS India team participated in a tree planting initiative as a part of environmental sustainability program, a global VCLS CSR activity with Hands On CSR NGO in April 2023.
The activity was to enhance greenery of Maragondanahalli lake, Electronic City, Bengaluru Urban by planting indigenous species of heighted saplings, which have an overall survival rate of 95%. They will grow into trees over next 3-5 years to contribute to environmental sustainability. These saplings have natural resistance to different weather conditions in India and after a year, they will be self-sustainable. In the first 2 years, the sapling will be nurtured by Hands On CSR NGO, for which financial contribution will be done by VCLS.
The entire VCLS India Team participated in this activity by planting 100+ trees. The enthusiasm, team spirit and coordination is positive, energetic and easily palpable. The team is looking forward to participating in more events and initiatives of this kind.
