As the cool temperatures and shorter days of fall finally reach us here in the Pacific Northwest, our thoughts naturally turn to all things autumnal. Along with the pyramids of pumpkins, baskets of apples, berries and other bounties that fill the bins at our local grocery, we are reminded that this is the time of year for thanksgiving, and giving back.
At Axelerate, we are very thankful — for the great people whom we are privileged to work with every day, as colleagues, clients and consultants; we are grateful for the support of our local business community, and honored to have been named to both Puget Sound Business Journal’s Top 100 Fastest-Growing Businesses, and the prestigious Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Companies in America lists.
Giving back to the local community is a core company value at Axelerate, and we take our commitment seriously. In that spirit, we’re proud to continue our support of Hopelink, and the great work it does for local families in crisis through its food banks, educational and training programs, and many other community outreach initiatives. This year, Axelerate is proud to sponsor a table at the 17th Annual Reaching Out Benefit Luncheon on October 15th, at the Meydenbauer Center, where we look forward to hearing the keynote speech by Jeannette Walls, who wrote the best-selling memoir The Glass Castle.
Axelerate is also happy to be a table sponsor for Groundwire’s 2012 Connector Awards Event. We join Groundwire Labs in the mission to help organizations in conservation, civic engagement, and community building by providing open-source technology and know-how to the greater nonprofit community. We invite all of our friends and family to join us in our support of these two great organizations – and the many other fine philanthropic and charitable organizations that our community offers.
