Paradox Sports was a recent recipient of an Equinix Impact Grant, which Equinix awards to small- to medium-sized nonprofits that are making meaningful contributions in areas that our employees are passionate about. The grant helped fund two adaptive climbing trips this year for disabled military veterans – one to Mt. Rainer and the other to Yosemite National Park the weekend of Sept. 11. Equinix will renew the grant for 2016.
Since 2001, NetHope has brought together many of the world’s largest humanitarian organizations to better serve the developing world through the smarter use of technology. NetHope and its 43 member nonprofits represent more than $40 billion dollars of humanitarian development, emergency response and conservation programs in 180 countries.
Camara has placed more than 65,000 computers in 3,500+ schools and trained over 15,000 teachers. The organization's efforts inspired Equinix to select Camara as an Equinix Impact Program grant recipient.
Equinix Impact Grant recipient Samasource harnesses the untapped potential of the world’s poor, training and employing them for computer-based work at a living wage.
In the fall of 2014, we kicked off our grant-making efforts. Over 400 employees cast their ballots in the first-ever Equinix Impact Grants campaign to help select our first two grant recipients, Camara and Samasource.
