Giving Back

Giving Back

Philanthropy is an important part of our DNA. We believe that even the smallest piece of active good intention can cause a ripple effect, and that the world needs more businesses to take responsibility beyond themselves and their profits. Plus, we’ve found that success is more fulfilling when it’s grounded in giving.

We’ve included this principle of giving back as one of our core values, and our B Corporation commitment holds us accountable to it. Rule4 prioritizes giving to organizations that provide safety net, animal welfare, or recreational safety services.

B Corporation

As a Certified B Corporation organization, we are part of the growing movement to use business as a force for good. With more than 2,600 companies across 150 industries and 60 countries, the B Corp community is working toward reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, and stronger local communities. At Rule4, this includes commitments to prioritize local suppliers, support local charitable organizations, donate a percentage of our revenue, and establish a corporate citizenship program that includes paid volunteer/pro bono service and matching charitable donations.

Community Support and Sponsorships

Rule4 regularly supports and sponsors local technology groups and community organizations.

Meetups. Rule4 hosts the monthly Boulder Linux Users Group (BLUG), DevOps Boulder, Boulder Java Users Group, Information Systems Security Association, and Elasticsearch meetups at our headquarters. 

Community. We support the following community organizations that make the world a better place:

The Colorado Avalanche Information Center saves lives and increases access to the amazing Colorado high country by providing real-time avalanche forecasts and advisories for resorts, mountain roads and highways, and backcountry recreation activities.

Harvest of Hope Pantry supports Boulder families and individuals by relieving the stress of food insecurity. The organization serves as a sustainable source of supplemental food to those in need, and as an efficient outlet for the redistribution of food in the community.

HSBV provides shelter and care to more than 7,000 companion animals each year, ultimately placing or reuniting 95% of those animals with guardians. It promotes healthy relationships between pets and people through its adoption, transfer, veterinary, and training/behavior programs, all of which are open to the public.
