We believe that giving back is a cornerstone of building a strong community. It goes without saying that creating economic, business and technological growth in the Central Coast and surrounding areas is our business goal. But caring and giving back is important for all of us to successfully thrive as well. Each year, through corporate and in-kind giving, event participation, and volunteering, we support a wide range of local charity events, technology initiatives and community organizations.
Our team stays active throughout the year with our service clubs, serving on boards, and volunteering with civic organizations. Some of us have been volunteers in our communities for over 15 years! Read about Digital West's fall community involvement with a few organizations that we support annually.
