Vista, Calif.-based technology vendor Bluepoint Solutions' mission stretches beyond providing paperless technology solutions to its clients, which include more than 1,500 credit unions.

Over the past six years, the vendor has developed a partnership with Monarch School, a K-12 school for homeless youth in San Diego, by giving monetary donations, hosting charity events and donating items. And Bluepoint Founder/CEO Hal Tilbury said he hopes to inspire other companies.

The partnership began when Tilbury heard about the school and sent in a donation. Soon after, he decided to donate 5% of the company's annual net income to Monarch School and match employees' donations to the school. Bluepoint also hosts a quarterly dinner, a prom, a Mother's Day luncheon, community drives and a career fair for the students and their families.
