Community Involvement

At High Touch Technologies, we believe it’s important to give back to our communities. As an employee-owned company, our surrounding communities determine our success by providing hard-working employees and exciting business opportunities.

We foster a culture of social responsibility and service, investing in the community, and encouraging employee volunteerism and philanthropy. Through our community involvement, High Touch actively supports:

  • STEM education
  • Helping the disadvantaged population
  • Youth initiatives
  • Economic development through community advancement and entrepreneurship
Customer Relationship Management (CRM)

Education

By supporting education, we help enrich our communities at their cores. High Touch has continuously awarded scholarships to students at Wichita State University majoring in technology-related programs.

Beginning in 2017, High Touch began awarding a scholarship to a Butler Community College student participating in an Information Technology degree program maintaining a 3.25 GPA or higher.

Most recently, High Touch partnered with Friends University and other Wichita-area businesses on a state-of-the-art cybersecurity lab—one of the first of its kind in the U.S. With this lab, Friends University can offer bachelor’s and master’s programs in cybersecurity.

High Touch is a proud partner of STEMpact2020. Our employees actively volunteer and participate in youth development programs such as Girls Who Code and Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Sponsorship

To foster strong community-wide development, High Touch sponsors local area initiatives and nonprofit organizations whose missions align with our core values.
