“You can’t live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.”

– John Wooden


We understand how incredibly blessed we’ve been as an organization, and we regularly seek out opportunities to give back.


While AE gives a significant dollar amount to worthy causes in our community each year, we strive to do more than that. We look for opportunities to get involved in our community by committing our time and energy, and that of our employees.

From donating time and meals to Feeding America and local food banks, food drives for the Topeka Rescue Mission and school supplies for children in need, to Toys for Tots, adopting families at Christmas and our work to provide housing in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity and the Warrick Dunn Charities, AE is constantly looking for ways to make a real difference.

In addition, many of our employees are Make a Wish Foundation wish grantors or are involved with the Junior Achievement, Big Brothers Big Sisters and other community action groups.

Many of our dreams have become a reality, and we want to help others realize their dreams as well.
