HUNTER in the Community
Actively supporting our communities is a huge part of our company culture. We actively support both technology and non-technology-related causes through both individual efforts and team-building company events.
TechBridge is an Atlanta-based nonprofit organization with one mission – to help nonprofits use technology to increase capacity to serve our community. We focus on technology enabling nonprofits to focus on their mission. TechBridge has provided IT consulting, hosting and outsourcing services to hundreds of nonprofits, helping them harness the productivity gains long since enjoyed by the corporate sector. As an affiliate of the NPower Network, TechBridge has facilitated the donation of millions of dollars in Microsoft software and connects the needs of nonprofits with the skills and financial resources of the technology community. The Digital Ball, TechBridge’s signature fundraiser, brings together Atlanta’s technology community to celebrate the impact technology can have in strengthening our community.

Distributing these donations to low-income Georgians, our partner agencies provide dynamic links between the local community, the Food Bank and our supporters.

The Ron Clark Academy is a private, nonprofit SACS CASI accredited middle school in Southeast Atlanta that promotes innovation and inspires its students through energetic teaching balanced by a strict code of discipline. Each year, 3,000 educators from around the world visit the Academy to learn how to replicate the school’s style, philosophy and success in their own classrooms. The Academy currently relies on outside funding to provide scholarships to students from varying academic backgrounds.
For Pete’s Sake
Wiskott-Aldrich is a rare, genetic disease that kills most victims before the age of two. Creating and growing the For Pete’s Sake Foundation began as a personal crusade by the friends and family of P.J. Lyle. None of them had heard of the disease until it threatened to take the life of the young son of Peter and Beth Lyle. Wiskott-Aldrich Sydrome strikes too few children to garner national attention, celebrity telethons or massive government research. Before the For Pete’s Sake Foundation began in 2003, Wiskott-Aldrich had no organized charitable support at all.
