Community Partnerships. We form collaborative relationships with targeted non-profit organizations to make a deeper and more sustainable impact on our communities. We do more than checkbook philanthropy. We go into local schools and after school programs and sit side by side with students to mentor and teach valuable career skills. We plant gardens and help beautify our communities. It isn't enough for us to be a great company - we want to be a great neighbor.
Impact Day and more. Each year IAC Applications sponsors its annual Impact Day, a day of employee volunteerism where we roll up our sleeves and pitch in at numerous local organizations to make a difference in our communities. Beyond Impact Day, we organize numerous workplace giving opportunities throughout the year, including food and toy drives, coat collections, charity walks, and community cleanup events.
Donation Matching. When IAC Applications' employees donate to charitable organizations, IAC donates too. Our parent company IAC matches employee donations to non-profit organizations up to $5,000. Through this program our employees support and contribute to educational institutions, arts and cultural organizations, health-related charities, environmental organizations and many other worthy 501(c)(3) organizations.
We are helping bridge the technology gap. It is well documented that women and minorities are underrepresented in the technology sector - a dynamic that IAC Applications is passionate about changing. Our active community service and philanthropic efforts focus on empowering youth through technology. We promote and support a range of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) related education programs, competitions and resources to inspire the next generation of developers, engineers and graphic designers.
