What's Sage Foundation?

It's a unique 2+2+2 model that sets a new standard for corporate philantrophy around the world. We're helping organizations create positive social impact by giving our time, money, expertise and technology.
"Sage Foundation provides time, resources, and technology so non-profit organizations can help more people reach their true potential."


In addition to providing donated software licenses to eligible organizations, Sage Foundation is constantly innovating on the best ways to spread good throughout communities.
