2023 End of Year Donation Vote

December at Fusion Tech means one thing: It’s time for our annual End of Year Donation Vote!

Since 2017, we stopped sending out Christmas cards (that always end up in the trash anyway) and gave that money to a charity making a difference in the world.

Charities are helped. Trees are saved. And lives are changed.

But we don’t just randomly throw a dart to choose the charity.

Instead, we invite our customers, employees, and the local community to vote on which charity receives the donation!

2022 End of Year Donation Vote

In 2017, we started a holiday tradition that has been a customer, employee, and community favorite.

Rather than send out Christmas cards that eventually get thrown away, we take the money we would spend on printing and postage, add some to it, and donate that money to a deserving, amazing charity.

Charities are helped. Trees are saved. And lives are changed.

The best part: we let our customers, employees, and local community vote on which charity receives the donation! Read more

Fusion Tech Makes Donations to 10 Non-Profits

Supporting local and national charities is a key value here at Fusion Tech.

Since 2017, we’ve hosted a vote where our clients, community, and employees could choose which charity would receive our end-of-year donation. It’s been widely successful year after year, gaining hundreds and sometimes thousands of votes.

When the COVID pandemic hit, we donated a percentage of the sale of our COVID guards to local food pantries to help those in our region hit the hardest by lockdowns and loss of jobs.

It’s just part of our DNA. We give back out of the success we’ve received.
