Vector Marketing Philanthropic Support
In honor of Vector Marketing Corporation's College Bowl Program, the company donates $170,000 annually in unrestricted gifts to the academic institutions our top performers attend. This program recognizes the vital role academia plays in the preparation of our work force and gives students the honor of securing a financial contribution to their school. The competition runs three times a year (coinciding with Vector Marketing’s three sales campaigns), and is open to sales representatives who are full-time students.
Vector Marketing All-American Scholarship Program
The Vector Marketing All-American Scholarship Program awards over $50,000 annually to 140 sales representatives throughout the US and Canada based on their performance. The donations, which go directly to the student, may be used for textbooks or other educational expenses. In addition, a gift of $1,000 goes to the institution attended by the number one performer in each of three campaigns. Eligible students must be enrolled full-time at the time of the award.
