AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 23, 2019--

SolarWinds (NYSE:SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced its 2019 highlights for Geeks that Give, a company-sponsored, employee-driven charitable program to help focus and amplify employee efforts to give back to the communities SolarWinds serves globally.

Established in 2015, Geeks that Give enables SolarWinds employees to support their local communities through monetary, material, or in-kind donations to charitable organizations. The program supports efforts worldwide in the following areas:

“Since its inception 20 years ago, SolarWinds has always been about people—whether it’s the tech pros we serve or our employees around the world,” said Kevin Thompson, CEO, SolarWinds. “Geeks that Give is a natural extension of this ethos. We rely on the passion, ideas, and involvement of our local employees to give back to the communities in which we work and live, and we’re so proud of the program’s growth in the past year to support important charitable organizations.”

In 2019, more than 10 SolarWinds offices worldwide participated in Geeks that Give efforts, growing the program by nearly 70 percent since last year. This growth excludes holiday fundraisers such as food bank drives and toy and gift-giving initiatives many offices across the globe have planned through the month of December.
