LogMeIn Awards Multiple Grants in First Half of 2019
Last October, we announced a partnership with The Boston Foundation, an organization that works with individuals and companies to make lasting social impact in the region and beyond. This has allowed us to make numerous grants to non-profits and NGOs impacting the communities in which LogMeIn employees live and work, taking our CSR program, Mission Possible, to the next level of giving.
As a public company with nearly 4,000 employees in 25 locations across the world, we are dedicated to doing our part in the global community.
“LogMeIn is a great example of a company that makes supporting its communities as a key priority. Mission Possible is making a true impact in the communities in which LogMeIn operates, much of which is driven by the employee’s themselves”, said Tim Smith, Senior Director, Philanthropy Group at The Boston Foundation. “Mission Possible has become a true example that other leading public companies look to when developing their approach to community engagement and corporate social responsibility.”
In the first half of 2019, LogMeIn’s Mission Possible was able to provide grants to organizations focused on several areas such as education and youth programs, critical human need and sustainability. These organizations include:
- Code 2040 – An organization championed by BE at LogMeIn, an employee-driven group for Black employees and friends, Code 2040 is a nonprofit activating, connecting, and mobilizing the largest racial equity community in tech to dismantle the structural barriers that prevent the full participation and leadership of Black and Latinx technologists in the innovation economy. Through events, trainings, early-career programs, and knowledge sharing, Code2040 equips Black and Latinx technologists and their allies with the tools, connections, and care they need to advocate for and achieve racial equity in the tech industry.
- BUILD Boston: A long-standing partner of LogMeIn, BUILD’s mission is to use entrepreneurship to ignite the potential of youth from under-resourced communities and propel them to high school, college & career success.
- CoderDojo – Another LogMeIn partner of over six years, CoderDojo is a global movement of free, volunteer-led programming clubs for young people. Anyone aged seven to seventeen can visit a Dojo where they can learn to code, build a website, create an app or a game, and explore technology in an informal, creative, and social environment.
- The Ocean Conservancy – This is an organization working to protect the ocean from today’s greatest global challenges, creating science-based solutions for a healthy ocean and the wildlife and communities that depend on it. This grant was employee-driven and in celebration of LogMeIn’s commitment to the environment for Earth Day.
- Trevor Project – The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) young people under 25. Another organization chosen by an employee-driven group, PRIDE at LogMeIn, this grant was in celebration of PRIDE month.
We’re proud of the donations we’ve been able to make thus far in 2019 and have many more initiatives lined up in second half of the year. Stay tuned for more great updates!
