MPulse Software, Inc (www.mpulsesoftware.com) believes strongly in supporting our local community by giving back. As part of that tradition, MPulse and five other Silicon Shire companies are launching a two-week campaign to raise money for the McKenzie River Trust (MRT).
During the Silicon Shire for the River campaign, MPulse will join with IDX Broker, Concentric Sky, SheerID, AppNexus, and Palo Alto Software to offer a gift-matching challenge. Every donation made to the campaign from October 15 through 30, 2015, will be matched dollar for dollar up to $5,000. The money will support MRT’s efforts to conserve and restore critical habitat and scenic lands in the McKenzie basin of western Oregon.
“We’re proud to be a part of the Silicon Shire and its efforts to continue to make Eugene a great place to live, work, and play,” explained Steve Brous, MPulse CEO. “We enjoy the outdoor activities and scenery of this special area, and we’re dedicated to preserving that experience for our current and future employees, their families, our customers, and the community we live in.”
Located in the southern Willamette Valley, the Silicon Shire encompasses the Eugene-Springfield metropolitan area. Shire companies are technology businesses of all kinds that work together to expand the local infrastructure necessary to build and grow hi-tech business in the area, and to promote Eugene-Springfield as a hi-tech hot spot.
“Projects like the Silicon Shire for the River campaign help us to maintain and improve the terrific quality of life we enjoy in this special region. That’s one of our biggest assets, and it truly helps attract great talent and great companies to the area,” said Jason Johnson, MPulse vice president of sales and marketing. “Shire companies are dedicated to ensuring that what makes this place so extraordinary will always be here.”
