Ipswitch iCare partners
GiftsToGive is an innovative, student-powered community organization, headquartered on the southern coast of Massachusetts, that recycles, repurposes and reuses children’s clothing, books, toys, cribs, safety gates and more for those in need. Students organize collection drives in their communities, process the donations and assemble gift packages for local children. Area agencies work directly with children and families to place “orders” through an online shopping cart. Ipswitch is proud to support this organization because it promotes service learning and community connections in an efficient, sustainable business model. READ MORE ABOUT GIFTS TO GIVE
The Foundation To Be Named Later
The Foundation To Be Named Later was launched in 2005 by Paul Epstein, a social worker in the Brookline Public School system, and his brother, then-Red Sox Executive Vice President and General Manager, Theo Epstein. Its mission is to raise funds and awareness for nonprofit agencies working on the front lines serving disadvantaged youth in the Greater Boston area. Ipswitch is proud to support this organization because we can see the immediate impact it makes on local families and children’s lives and well-being.

Equal Justice Initiative
The Equal Justice Initiative provides legal representation to indigent defendants and prisoners who have been denied fair and just treatment in the legal system. The organization litigates on behalf of condemned prisoners, juvenile offenders, people wrongly convicted or charged with violent crimes, poor people denied effective representation and others whose trials are marked by racial bias or prosecutorial misconduct. EJI works with communities that have been marginalized by poverty and discouraged by unequal treatment.
