Confio Combines Corporate Philanthropy with Ignite Software Demonstrations
Three events will raise thousands for underserved and medical research
Boulder, Colo., Oct. 8, 2012 – Today Confio Software announced that it will host three live demonstrations of its Ignite software this fall, and for each person who attends, Confio will donate $10 to a worthy charity. This year’s charity demonstrations build off the success Confio had with their first charity event in 2011, and the goal is to raise at least $5,000 for the chosen charities.
The first event will take place Oct. 10, 2012 and will benefit The National Breast Cancer Foundation. Janis Griffin, one of Confio’s Senior DBAs, will demonstrate the benefits of the Ignite performance monitoring software in a 45-minute webinar presentation starting at 12:00 p.m. Eastern time.

The second Ignite demonstration will be Nov. 14, 2012 benefiting Community Food Share and the third will take place Dec. 5, 2012 and will support Toys for Tots. All three events are completely free to participants.
“Last November, the SQL Server community rallied behind us as we supported a local food bank with an Ignite for SQL Server event. It was so successful, this year we decided to hold three different events, supporting different charities, ” said Matt Larson, Confio’s founder and CEO. “These events combine our commitment to philanthropy with our commitment to our customers and our business.”
Confio has a history of corporate social responsibility and more than 80 percent of its employees engage in volunteer activities in their communities. In addition, Confio’s CEO is actively involved in several philanthropic organizations including Guardian of Angels and Social Venture Partners.
“It’s a myth that business and charity can’t go hand-in-hand,” continued Larson. “At Confio, we’re demonstrating that we can grow our business at a fast pace and still be generous with our philanthropy.”
