FYI, this story is more than a year old

Boomi has announced a new charitable donation program led by its Boomiverse user community.

The program will give a total of $100,000 to not-for-profit organisations dedicated to causes such as alleviating homelessness, increasing diversity in STEM, international aid, and more. The company has also announced the opening of registration for its Out of This World digital event in November.

Boomi is launching the charitable donation program to celebrate the milestone of surpassing 100,000 members in its online community, Boomiverse. It says members can choose where to direct the funds by engaging in the community and contributing to its knowledge base.

"At Boomi, we're passionate about transforming the world, not only through our technology but also through our core values, which include committing to continuously being better and building communities of good humans," says Boomi chief operating officer, Christopher Port.
"Boomi makes connections that create transformational outcomes, and this program is one more way we're doing this. By engaging our Boomiverse community as we donate to these not-for-profits, we will be creating innovations while also helping communities around the world."

Boomiverse is an online community for Boomi's global customers and partners to build applications, get help with complex integration projects, and explore the capabilities of the Boomi AtomSphere Platform. It includes a library of pre-built templates, called boosters, created and contributed by community members. Other members use these boosters to streamline their integrations, jump-start new processes, and speed their time to value.   
Each of the first 200 Boomiverse members to create and submit an approved booster to the library will get to choose one of four charitable organisations that will receive $500, up to a total of $100,000.

Recipients will include:  

  • Depaul International: A global charity supporting homeless and marginalised people, Depaul International is the parent charity of the Depaul Group, a global group of charities with a mission to end homelessness and change the lives of those affected by it. Each year, Depaul helps over 23,500 people and makes over 630,000 bed nights available to ensure people have a safe place to stay.
  • Girls Who Code: Girls Who Code is building a pipeline of global future female engineers. In nine years, the organisation has reached more than 500 million people globally and 450,000 girls through its programming, half of whom come from historically under-represented groups in technology. In 2019, Girls Who Code was named the #1 World's Most Innovative Non-Profit by Fast Company.
  • International Medical Corps: International Medical Corps is a global first responder that delivers emergency medical and related services to those affected by conflict, disaster and disease. Since its founding, it has operated in more than 80 countries and has provided more than $3.6 billion in emergency relief and training to communities worldwide.
  • ILGA World: ILGA World, the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association, is a worldwide federation of more than 1,700 organisations from over 160 countries and territories campaigning for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and intersex human rights.
