On Giving Back – Our New Nonprofit Launched This Week

Since even before I started iThemes in my home in 2008, my partners and I were thinking that if at some point our fledgling business succeeds and thrives, we wanted to find ways to give back in various ways.

Now going on our fourth year of business, we’ve started to put our money and time and effort where our mouth is.

This year, we donated money to a local project that helps refugees in Oklahoma City through iThemes.

And this week I’m delighted to help announce a new nonprofit foundation that Digimedia LP and iThemes have created called The Div.

The purpose is to foster web innovation and creativity in Oklahoma City. We’re going to do that in a number of ways, including offering local training opportunities through weekly and monthly workshops and classes, coworking days to gather the local web community, hosting web-related user groups, and social gatherings periodically.

Learn more about The Div and what we’re doing here and be sure to follow The Div on Twitter. And if you’re a web professional in Oklahoma City, please signup to volunteer or sponsor events and activities.
