Ocean Tomo actively supports important community programs, within the U.S. and globally.


Our efforts are presented both as an institution as well as through greater involvement by our employees in civic and charitable efforts. Together we reference these efforts under the “Ocean Tomo Outside” banner. Examples of our contributions include:


SPECIAL OLYMPICS CHICAGO POLAR PLUNGE

Eighteen Ocean Tomo employees made quite a splash at the Polar Plunge. Team Ocean Tomo Arctic Wave raised over $4,000 to support Special Olympics Chicago.

 


INVENT FOR HUMANITY

As a firm, we have worked with non-profit groups to create Invent For Humanity™, a community and marketplace that facilitates Appropriate Technology transfer for the betterment of mankind.

 


SOLAR SISTER FEMALE ENTREPRENEURS

Members of our Women’s Leadership Group spearhead a partnership with Solar Sister to bring light, hope and opportunity to some of the most remote communities in rural Africa. To date we have empowered ten female entrepreneurs to create sustainable enterprise in the developing world.

 


STANLEY MANNE CHILDREN’S RESEARCH INSTITUTE AT LURIE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL

We support a dedicated professional program to assist the Stanley Manne Children’s Research Institute at Lurie Children’s Hospital to identify licensing opportunities to help fund on-going pediatric research.

 


ASIAN LAW ALLIANCE

Ocean Tomo’s Managing Director, Rich Lettiere served as the Business Co-Chair for the 39th Anniversary of the Asian Law Alliance. We recognized Emily Ward, VP and Deputy General Counsel at PayPal with the Legal Impact Award. The Asian Law Alliance helps tens of thousands of people in obtaining decent housing, justice in the immigration process, and access to basic human and legal rights.

CHICAGO WOMEN IN IP

Ocean Tomo is proud to have helped create Chicago Women In IP (ChiWIP). Ocean Tomo Director Molly Keelan co-chairs Community Involvement Programs for the organization. Last year they welcomed female inventors from Radio Flyer and SekureTrak who helped over 40 local Brownie Girls Scouts earn their IP Patch & Inventor Badge.

 


NATIONAL INVENTORS HALL OF FAME



Ocean Tomo welcomed friends and clients to meet National Inventor’s Hall of Fame (NIHF), inductee Federico Faggin, inventor of the microprocessor, and to learn about a summer camp program Ocean Tomo is proud to support, Camp Invention. Each year, the NIHF Camp Invention partners with over 1,300 schools and districts in all 50 states to put 100,000 students through summer camp while introducing them to National Inventors Hall of Fame inductees like Federico.

 



Everyone at Ocean Tomo is part of a fund-raising match program seeking to encourage community and charitable efforts by our employees as a means to further support individual work/life balance.
