WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. – Account Control Technology Holdings, Inc.’s (ACT Holdings), a national leader in delivering debt recovery and business process outsourcing solutions, recently visited the Susan G. Komen® (Komen) headquarters in Dallas, Texas to present the nonprofit with a donation of $63,600. The generous contribution was a result of employee fundraising efforts from its 18 offices and a company match. Ten ACT Holdings employees from around the U.S. attended the check presentation.
In October, ACT Holdings alongside its nonprofit arm, Account Control Technology Foundation, Inc., held a companywide fundraising campaign, “ACT for a Cure,” to benefit Komen in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Yearly, since 2011, ACT has held this fundraiser donating a total of more than $215,000. To raise funds, offices participated in luncheons, casual days, bake sales, contests, raffles, tournaments and more.
“Every year I go with one or two employees to the Susan G. Komen headquarters to present them with our donation,” said Dale Van Dellen, Chairman of ACT Holdings. “This year I wanted to bring more staff members who rallied around our fundraising efforts to meet the people behind Komen. You see, not only does Komen invest funds in research but also provides services to the underserved. In the United States, there are so many women who do not have access to care. Komen selects some of these women and funds their treatments with the goal to save an additional 20,000 women lives each year!”
The ACT Holdings employees who attended the recent check presentation were:
- Dale and Debbie Van Dellen, ACT Holdings Co-Founders
- Jessi Karrer, Senior Bid Writer & Founder of ACT for a Cure (Woodland Hills, CA)
- Gail Davidson, Executive Assistant (Dallas, TX)
- Lynn Heineman, Senior VP, Sales & Marketing

- Erica Cortez, Admin Clerical (Bakersfield, CA)
- Sarah Richardson, Office Manager & Executive Assistant (Mason, OH)

“We at Komen are so thankful for the funds that everyone at ACT Holdings worked so hard to raise,” said Megan Rouse, DIY Program Manager at Komen. “Including ACT Holdings’ donation, we have raised over $1.3 million this year in the fight to end breast cancer forever. This money is helping us towards our bold goal of reducing the current number of breast cancer deaths in the U.S. by 50% in the next decade.”
