E3: Community

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

E3 = Epic 1% + 1% + 1%

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. The poor are hungry and their hunger traps them in poverty.

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 giving back a part of our corporate charter. We call it E3.

  • We give 1% of our time through our quarterly Epic Outreach program, serving where the greatest needs are through local charities.
  • We give 1% of our talent through administering financial planning days for organizations and churches that minister in low income neighborhoods.
  • And we give 1% of our gross revenue 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 2017 we will be opening up our quarterly Epic Outreach initiatives to include volunteer participation from clients of Epic Capital.

Basic needs are met, including a bed, meals, restroom/shower facilities, laundry, and personal hygiene items. A host of … Continue reading “Men’s Shelter of Charlotte”

A cold morning indeed, but our hearts were warmed by the incredible outpouring of support we saw throughout the day. We had the opportunity to pick up donated food items at two local schools, Stoney Creek Elementary and Huntingtowne Farms Elementary. The amount of food donated by the families of the children at those schools was … Continue reading “Loaves & Fishes”
