Security 101's Gift of Security Program 

Every year beginning just before the holidays, Security 101 and its participating offices work to acknowledge and aid the local nonprofits of our cities that help keep them safe. Each office takes nominations from the public for nonprofits that either don't have a security system or could use an upgrade. Once the nominations are in, each office meets with esteemed judges from the city and narrow down the nominations to three qualified finalists. The next step is public voting where the three finalists ask for votes to win the grand prize. 

Axis Communications has been a partner in the program for that last few years and has helped it grow to the size it is now. As program partners, we collectively donate $10,000 worth of integrated services and state-of-the-art products to deserving nonprofits in our local office communities.

Voting will be open November 19 - December 10 and the winning organization announced shortly after. 

Corporate giving comes in many forms but our offices and product partners put their full support behind the Gift of Security program. It positively impacts deserving nonprofits by helping them improve their safety so they can stay focused on their mission. Not only does the award help the nonprofit winner in each city, it helps make the communities a safer place.
