Capstan in the Community

At Capstan, “service” has a deeper meaning that encompasses not just each and every client relationship, but also the surrounding community where we all proudly live and work. Though uncommon elsewhere, volunteerism, charitable contributions, and spirited community involvement is part of our commitment, and is a big part of what makes service a cornerstone of the company’s overall mission. These are just a sample of Charitable organizations we work with.
