Community service is a key focus at iSqFt/Construction Software Technologies, led by CEO Dave Conway. The company’s Community Outreach Committee engages iSqFt employees in fun outreach initiatives and fundraisers to make a positive, lasting impact within the communities they live and work in.

Each year, the committee selects organizations and initiatives to support based upon the requests of iSqFt employees. This past year, these included Boys Hope Girls Hope, American Cancer Society, Hope Lodge, Military Families, Roll Hill Academy, Hoxworth Center, The Ronald McDonald House, St. Vincent DePaul, Animal Friends, and Crossroads’ Health Center and Reach Out and Read.

Boys Hope Girls Hope of Cincinnati — which identifies and provides help to gifted children facing economic barriers — is the company’s “adopted” charitable organization. ISqFt has donated numerous hours and thousands of dollars to help support BHGH participants.

One of many fundraising initiatives that the company undertakes is a monthly restaurant fundraiser. ISqFt partners with local restaurants to provide company meals, with 10 percent of total food orders benefiting the iSqFt Community Outreach Program. Employees can also use contribution coupons at participating restaurants to have 10 percent of their meal costs go to this this fund.

Other fundraising initiatives include a candy-gram fundraiser, a Mother’s Day flower fundraiser, a Split-the-Pot fundraiser and a cornhole tournament fundraiser.

Proceeds contribute to BHGH in many ways. ISqFt serves as the direct corporate sponsor for the Annual Boys Hope Girls Hope Hearts for Hope Gala and organizes and throws annual BHGH graduation parties and Thanksgiving gatherings, among other activities.
