E3: Community

“We make a living by what we get. But we make a life by what we give.” - Winston Churchill

E3 = Epic Time, Talent & Treasure

Nearly one-half of the world’s population – more than 3 billion people, 1 billion of which are children – live in poverty, and 1.3 billion live in extreme poverty earning less than $1.25 a day. Eight-hundred and five million people worldwide do not have enough food to eat, and more than 750 million people lack adequate access to clean drinking water.  

In the US alone, over 43 million Americans live in poverty. That’s one in every seven. Nearly 27 percent of US households – 90 million people – are unbanked or underbanked. Sixty-three percent of Americans don’t have enough savings to cover a $500 emergency.

Epic Capital is a mission-driven firm with a genuine passion for community, both locally and around the world, that focuses specifically on social outreach initiatives. We give our time, talent and treasure to organizations that support individuals that are less fortunate, poor or impoverished. This is meaningful to us because we feel extraordinarily blessed for all of the things we have in our lives and the opportunities that we have been given to do work that we love. So we have made our passion for lifting others up a part of our corporate charter. We call it E3.

We give our time through our quarterly Epic Outreach program, serving where the greatest needs are through local charities.

We give our talent through our Epic-EDU program, in addition to our partnership with CommonWealth Charlotte, administering financial workshops for organizations and churches that minister to low income families, the working poor and the previously incarcerated.

And we give our treasure through our Epic Impact Grant program to local community and global organizations that meet our social outreach criteria.

We believe that we are all called to serve. We also believe that the positive impact one can make by empowering the life of another can alter the direction of that life forever.

We are pleased to announce that beginning in 2018 we will be opening up our quarterly Epic Outreach initiatives to include volunteer participation from clients of Epic Capital.

What a great honor to prep for and then serve the men, women and children that stopped in the Dilworth Soup Kitchen for Lunch on Monday. This is a special place, no doubt about it. With over 125 visitors in just over 1-hour, it was a heart-warming site to behold, and they truly made each of … Continue reading “Dilworth Soup Kitchen”

We have been wanting to serve with Rise Against Hunger, a meal-packing non-profit, for quite some time and Jason, Danielle and Ed were finally given the opportunity to do so this morning. As part of a  much larger team of volunteers, they were able to pack over 10,000 meals for those in need around the world. Rise Against … Continue reading “Rise Against Hunger”

We had beautiful weather for Epic Capital’s stream clean effort today. This is part of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services Adopt A Stream program. Our section is across Park Road from the pond at Park Road Park. It was an extraordinary experience on many fronts. It’s amazing what disregard some have for our environment. Plastic … Continue reading “CharMeck Adopt-a-Stream Clean”
