The Triangle Business Journal recently announced its 2022 Corporate Philanthropy Awards and Connect Cause was included as one of the winners.
Connect Cause was founded on a mission to provide comprehensive and affordable technology solutions exclusively for nonprofits and other charitable foundations to empower them to fulfill their own missions and serve their communities. CEO Ahmad Eied saw how a lack of technology left these organizations open to cybersecurity attacks and wanted to help them overcome their vulnerabilities.
“All I want to do is help our communities do better and these nonprofits are a key part of helping improve our communities,” said Eied. “That’s really the mission of Connect Cause. We are here to support these nonprofits. And supporting nonprofits goes beyond monetary donations. Supporting nonprofits also means empowering an organization to do its job and do it well. Connect Cause wants nonprofit organizations to be able to focus on the person directly in front of them while its expert technicians are in the background, fixing the computer, training the staff to use different technology, and doing whatever is necessary to allow them to better execute their mission using technology.”
As part of Eied’s vision to help nonprofits, in 2021 Connect Cause donated more than $129,237 in monetary contributions, products and services including pro bono consulting sessions to local nonprofit groups.
“Often, the level of corporate citizenry mirrors the quality of life in our communities,” said Jason Christie, publisher of TBJ. “The Triangle area is fortunate to have so many passionate and helping nonprofits and individuals that are being guided and supported by committed companies across all industries.”
A full profile on Connect Cause, along with the other winners, will be published as part of a special section in the Nov. 18 subscriber edition of the Triangle Business Journal.
