Making Our Community a Better Place—Around the World
Giving back is an important part of the Fortra culture. Every day, our employees around the world donate time and money to make our community a better place.
We pay it forward. We work with charities that help kids, animals, promote diversity and inclusion in their communities, and so much more.
Fortra Gives Back
Each October, Fortra employees come together in the spirt of giving back (and having fun).
In 2021 Fortra employees raised $90,000 to benefit charities around the world focused on diversity and inclusion, such as MotherCoders (US), The Diversity Trust (UK), ADHD Foundation (AU), Insurance Foundation for Servicemen (AM), Amics De La Gent Gran (ESP), Tjejzonen (SE), Cuida Haciendo Arte con Pequenos (AR), and much more.
The Polar Plunge
Special Olympics Minnesota’s signature winter event, the Polar Plunge, showcases participants jumping into a freezing cold body of water and raising funds that support more than 8,200 individuals with intellectual disabilities across the state.
Fortra employees band together to face the freezing temps year after year to support this cause.
Funds raised through the Polar Plunge go to support not only year-round sports training and competition for people with intellectual disabilities but also initiatives that encourage health, leadership and inclusion.
Giving Back to Nature
Our employees from the Yerevan office, in partnership with the Armenian Tree Project, planted 100 trees near a fallen soldier monument called Erablur. These almond and apricot trees are meant to attract birds and make the monument livelier.
