Cydcor embraces the concept of “people helping people” and, in addition to encouraging its employees and contractors at its offices in Southern California (the “Cydcor Offices”), Cydcor opens the door for sales companies within its network to join us in bringing that core value to life through a variety of philanthropy initiatives. We believe that working together to support our local and global communities today can help build a better, brighter tomorrow for all of us. We also believe that when individuals apply their talents and skills to serve others, they acquire knowledge and hone abilities that better equip them for personal and professional success. Cydcor is proud that many companies within its network have committed to doing their part for the greater good by participating in a variety of corporate philanthropy initiatives and charity activities throughout the year.
Since 2010, Cydcor, with the help of more than 4,000 dedicated volunteers from its network and the Cydcor Offices, has partnered with Operation Smile to provide children from the developing world with free, life-changing cleft lip and cleft palate surgeries. Together, Cydcor and members of its network have raised more than $800,000 USD through Cydcor’s annual Day of Smiles event, during which Cydcor challenges sales company owners to plan and organize creative fundraisers of their own, in addition to many other fundraising events they may participate in individually throughout the year.
Through our collaborative efforts, we have raised enough money to put smiles on the faces of nearly 3,500 children in need. In appreciation of their contribution, Cydcor has also invited top fundraisers from the network to join the Cydcor Offices on medical missions around the globe, where volunteers meet and interact with patients and their families, attend surgeries, and assist Operation Smile volunteer medical teams as they transform lives forever. Through combined fundraising efforts, Cydcor and volunteers from its network have funded medical missions to Guatemala, Mexico, Brazil, Bolivia, and Guadalajara.
Cydcor looks forward to reaching many more milestones through its support of Operation Smile, and we are grateful that many in our network have volunteered to play a critical role in helping impact the lives of so many in need.
At Cydcor, we take the concept of “people helping people” seriously, and for us, that idea extends beyond serving our clients to doing our part support the local and global community. Since 2010, Cydcor has partnered with Operation Smile, a volunteer-based organization dedicated to improving access to surgical care for children and adults with cleft conditions, to raise awareness and funds to ensure that no child is denied access to safe surgery.
The surgeries Operation Smile provides transform not just smiles, but lives, and Cydcor is proud to help make these transformations possible.

Through the Neighborhood Leader Program, Cydcor supports philanthropy initiatives launched by the independently owned and operated sales companies in its network. As part of this program, the Cydcor Offices have created a sponsorship program to encourage independent sales business owners and their employees to lend their time, talents, and fundraising efforts to support the non-profit of their choice. Each independent sales company is eligible for one Cydcor sponsorship per year, through which Cydcor will match a portion of the funds raised by the sales company.
Cydcor is proud to recognize the various companies in its network that have staged local, community fundraising events such as toy drives, scavenger hunts, holiday food drives, fundraising tournaments, raffles, and more. These companies have held events to benefit and raise awareness for well-known charities including Ronald Mc Donald House, Make a Wish Foundation, Toys for Tots, and many others.
Through philanthropy initiatives like Day of Smiles, the Neighborhood Leader Program, and support for local fundraising, Cydcor creates opportunities for business owners to make a meaningful contribution to the community at home and far away, and is proud of the fact that so many of the independent sales companies and other businesses in Cydcor’s network have opted to participate year after year.
