We take our company values seriously at Isos, and one of those values is “Give and Gain.” Not only are we encouraged to share our time, energy, and knowledge with each other internally, we’re given frequent opportunities to look outside the company and give back to our communities. (And with employees located across the country, there are a lot of places we can do good!)

Several years ago, inspired by our partner Atlassian, Isos joined Pledge 1%. Pledge 1% is a global movement encouraging companies of all sizes to make an impact in their communities. By joining the initiative, we’ve pledged to divert 1% of equity, 1% of product, 1% of profit, or 1% of employee time to philanthropic efforts. This gives us a variety of ways to engage our peeps and make a difference.

To ensure we’re meeting our goal, our Pledge 1% committee solicits ideas from everyone, and each quarter we discuss causes and charities that are meaningful to us and that we want to support as a company. In the past, we've donated time and money to schools in the Phoenix area, to community organizations like the YMCA and the Boys & Girls Club, to various hospitals, and to veteran causes.

We feel lucky to have so many Isos peeps that want to get involved, and that we are in a position to help others. Here’s a spotlight on some of the most recent, amazing organizations we’ve worked with:


Hope High School

The mission of Hope High School is to inspire students to make better choices and be champions of their own learning in an alternative, non-traditional school environment. Scrum and agile have been instrumental in transforming the culture and lives of students at this charter school in Phoenix, Arizona that serves disadvantaged youth. 

Isos brought a group of students from Hope High School to our company headquarters in Tempe, and hosted a lunch and learn session for them to discuss agile in education, how it connects to agile in the workplace, and possible future career opportunities in agile.


Mountain Shadows Support Group

Mountain Shadows Support Group is dedicated to providing a secure family environment that fosters enriching relationships, independence, and growth to individuals with intellectual disabilities. Today, MSSG is a vibrant community of twenty-seven homes, serving 171 residents and consumers in Southern California. 

Isos raised $4,000 for Mountain Shadows Foundation, the charitable fundraising organization supporting Mountain Shadows Support Group and Mountain Shadows Ancillary Services, to pay for recreational items for the group home in San Diego where an Isos employee’s son lives.


St. Vincent De Paul

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is dedicated to feeding, clothing, housing and healing individuals and families in the community who have nowhere else to turn for help. SVdP has been serving the community throughout central and northern Arizona since 1946.

Triple-digit temperatures in Arizona can create deadly conditions for those without shelter. In support of St. Vincent De Paul, Isos purchased items from the organization’s wishlist and packed up and donated Heat Relief Kits to help those in need combat excessive heat. 


Warfighter Made

Warfighter Made helps veterans in several ways: adapting and customizing combat-wounded  Veterans’ vehicles so they can continue to do the things they enjoy; inviting ill, injured and combat wounded Veterans to participate in recreational therapy trips; and providing “Camaraderie Therapy” in a 4,000 sq ft facility, by inviting all vets, from all branches, and all eras, to hang out with other veterans building projects for combat wounded amputees.

Isos supported Warfighter Made’s Adrenaline Therapy Saturday on 9/11 in Anza, CA. Multiple employees volunteered to help with track duties, registration, assisting vets in and out of vehicles, and event set up and break down at this unique off-roading event for veterans and their families.
