At XI we are proud of the investment we make in the communities where we live and work.  Our commitment to making meaningful contributions to social issues that are relevant to our employees, and important in our community inspire our continual growth to give back in a variety of ways

This year our key initiatives include YYC Tech Gives & Canadian Blood Services, Partners for Life.

Canadian Blood Services – Partners for Life  XI rolled up their sleeves and became a corporate member of the Partners for Life Program 3 years ago. In addition to this we established our very own “Board of Donors” and this amazing group gets together quarterly to donate blood, and give back to the community in one the most direct ways we know how.

What we love about donating?

“There really is power in numbers. Our donor numbers have doubled since we joined, and last year we blew our corporate donation goal out of the water!”

 

YYC Tech Gives  For the past 4 years, XI has been a proud supporter of YYC Tech Gives.  For those if you who don’t know, YYC Tech Gives is a group of Calgary Tech  Companies coming together to give back to the community.  To date, YYC Tech gives has donated more than $470,000 to the Calgary Food Bank,  which translates to over $2.25 million worth in food.  Currently over 40 companies are a part of YYC Tech Give, and events are held through the year.  Donate time, food, financially …..

What do we love about this group?

“They put ideas into action, work collaboratively to make a difference, and leverage each other’s unique talents to give back where it’s needed the most.”
