  • Drop in the Bucket

    Earnest raised over $25,000 which built a water well and working toilets in Uganda. Imagine not having water in your home. Imagine walking three miles to collect water that might be contaminated. Imagine changing the lives and futures of thousands of people through clean water. That is what Earnest did – imagined making an impact on thousands of lives.

  • Drop in Bucket
  • Salvation Army

    Earnest has partnered with the Cleveland branch of the Salvation Army.  Every year, employees spend time collecting and distributing toys for the Salvation Army’s annual Christmas drive.

  • Salvation Army
  • Rocky River Watershed Council

    The first Saturday in June, employees suite up to hike, and clean! Employees and their family and friends hit the wooded walking trails in the Cleveland Metroparks to pick up trash and debris. Earnest has been a strong source to the environmental clean-up effort in the Cleveland area.

  • Earnest Team cleaning up
  • High School Leadership
