Making the world a better place
We at Igalia aim to make the world a better place. Since our early days we have tried to achieve this in two ways. First, by contributing to the world tons of free and open source software. We build on the shoulders of others and do our part to create a vast repository of software that others can study, adapt, and use. Second, by running our company not like most companies are, but like we wish most companies were. We are diverse and democratic, professionals and idealists.
Our corporate responsibility team tries to extend these principles beyond our business. Since 2007, we have donated 0.7% of our yearly revenue to charities in the hope of contributing to the United Nations 2015 Millennium Development Goals. Charities are selected to receive donations through a process which gives a chance to all the members of Igalia to propose organizations and decide how the total donation is divided among them. Charities to which Igalia has donated include UNICEF, Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders), Oxfam Intermón, Engineers Without Borders (EWB), Asociación Española Contra el Cáncer (AECC), WWF, Proactiva Open Arms, AFAL Ferrolterra, Gatocan, AVEMPO, Fundación Abrente, Educo, Planned Parenthood, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the Against Malaria Foundation.
