We recently reached an amazing milestone in our iCare@Ipswitch program (also check out our new iCare blog). Through iCare, Ipswitch has donated over $2 million dollars to a variety of community and charitable causes.
As an employee of Ipswitch, I take great pride in knowing that our CEO has incorporated social conscience and philanthropy into the core culture of our company. Not only does Ipswitch donate 5% of company profits to a variety of community programs, but also employees from around the globe volunteer to participate in events and causes. It’s our unique deep-rooted culture that truly separates Ipswitch from other organizations that I have been a part of.
Community involvement is an integral part of Ipswitch’s culture and values. At the heart of the iCare@Ipswitch commitment we recognize that the vitality of our company is linked to the health of our communities. And we know that our communities cannot flourish unless we invest in their future.”
At my 1-year and 3-year Ipswitch anniversaries, Ipswitch gave me $500 to donate to a charity of my choice. When my son was born last year, Ipswitch gave me another $500 to donate to my preferred charity. These are personal and meaningful examples of why Ipswitch is so special.
And keep an eye on the iCare blog to read about our recent and upcoming events.
Ipswitch win’s the Augusta Plane Pull, benefiting the Ronald McDonald House. Ipswitch’s team of computer programmers won for the second year in a row, pulling a Boeing 727 plane 12 feet in 6.499 seconds — more than five seconds faster than last year’s time.
Team Ipswitch had some pretty tough competition, 36 teams in total, including the Army AND the Navy!
The NEW Ronald MacDonald House will begin construction next year.
It’s been seven days since the impoverished island nation of Haiti was devastated by a catastrophic magnitude 7.0 earthquake. The scene in Port-au-Prince is dire–buildings have collapsed into heaps of concrete and dust, thousands of victims are desperate for aid, and thousands more remain missing beneath the debris. It’s crucial that we, as socially responsible citizens of the world, do all that we can to contribute to the relief efforts and the eventual rebuilding of Haiti.
That’s why we ask you to please join us in supporting Haitian relief efforts through CARE, one of the world’s largest private international humanitarian organizations. CARE is continuing to rush aid and emergency team members to Haiti following the earthquake.
You can help Haiti by contributing to CARE today! Donating is quick and easy.
