INDIANAPOLIS (Inside INdiana Business) — Indianapolis tech companies again collaborated to raise funds for local charities with the third annual Indy Tech Gives social fundraising challenge. Twelve companies participated in the six-week campaign, raising more than $90,000 for central Indiana nonprofits.

Participating companies included Boardable, CSpring, DeveloperTown, Fire Starters Inc., Indy CIO Network, Leaf Software Solutions, OneCause, Salesforce, Socio, Springbuk, SIM Indy and Zylo.

“When we started Indy Tech Gives in 2019, our goal was to unite the Indy Tech Community in a fun competition to create positive impact here in Central Indiana. Three years later, we could have never imagined the exponential growth of the program, raising more than $155,000 for 15 local charities. We are inspired by the passion, creativity and commitment from this year’s participating companies and look forward to 2022 and beyond,” said OneCause Chief Executive Officer Steve Johns.
