A neighbor to count on

We love our view across the Charles. It reminds us that we work in a pretty awesome place. And that everyday we're able to use our technology, our ideas and our time to help make our home even more amazing.

Locally supported organizations

With technology’s ability to connect us to anywhere in the world, we can forget it can also help us reach out to people right around the corner. That’s why since 2003 we’ve donated over $78 million in cash and software to nonprofits and underserved communities in Massachusetts. Call it corporate stewardship. Or social responsibility. Or whatever you like. We call it being a good neighbor.

Featured organization: Science Club for Girls

Science Club for Girls connects thousands of bright, young women from underrepresented groups with female mentors to inspire them to pursue careers in science. From building rockets to building self-confidence, Science Club for Girls is doing its part to build a sisterhood of future scientists.
