As Skyriver IT continues to grow, we feel it is important to give back to the community. As we get more and more involved with our community, we are continually impressed with the caliber of people we meet and the number who are happy to help others. Plus, the ideas and new businesses that we regularly see prove to us that Southern California is one of the most innovative places on earth.
Here are a few of the community groups we support:
There are many small, effective charities in San Diego that help children who are abused, neglected or disadvantaged. Their challenge is that they do not have the resources for effective fundraising. That is why CFO Roundtable started Day for Change. It is a fundraiser for a number of small charities in San Diego that help children in need and 100% of the money raised is given to these charities to support their great work.
Skyriver IT is proud to support of Day for Change. While their big fundraiser for the year is in December, you can make a donation any time.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego County does amazing work in our city. They match adults with kids, ages 7 to 18, who are facing adversity. The goal of the program is to develop a relationship that results in:
- Higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships
- Avoidance of risky behaviors
- Educational success
And they have been doing it here in San Diego for over 50 years with amazing, measurable results. That is why Skyriver IT is so happy to be supporting them with pro bono IT services. We are excited to give back to the San Diego community, because the community has been so supportive of our business.
You can learn more about Big Brothers Big Sisters at www.sdbigs.org. We think you will be impressed with all that they do.
The University of San Diego Center for Peace and Commerce is a collaboration between the USD School of Business and the School of Peace Studies to prepare new generations of change makers. The Center encourages students to develop and exercise innovative approaches for making a positive impact on people, profit, planet and peace.
For the past several years, we have been involved with the University of San Diego Center for Peace and Commerce, which has been a great experience. Through that connection, they asked Siyamak to be a judge for the USD Social Innovation Challenge. It was a great experience to see innovative ideas that can have a positive impact on the world.
San Diego Venture Group is a group that promotes the venture capital and start-up eco-system in San Diego. We joined the group several years ago and have been impressed with the caliber of people there and the impressive businesses being started in San Diego. Recently, we joined the board, because we really liked what they are doing and want to support the start-up community in San Diego.
SDFEI is an organization of financial executives. One of the ways that they give back to the San Diego community is to provide scholarships to deserving accounting and finance students each year. Skyriver IT supports the program by contributing to the scholarship fund.
Rotary is a service organization of business and professional leaders. It’s values include Vocational Service, Community Service, International Service, and Youth Service. Skyriver IT is proud to support their many programs.
The Business Executive Council is a group to meet other executives in San Diego and hear some excellent speakers. One of their outreach programs is to the Management Apprentice Program which helps undergraduate students from the community’s leading universities prepare to enter the business world. Held semi-annually, students will have the opportunity to network and obtain invaluable career advice from BEC members. Skyriver IT is a sponsor of this event.
