Northwoodians are committed to making a positive impact on communities where we live and work.

Our Mission

Giving Back

Our Partners

We work with organizations that make a difference in the human services space. 

Partner Spotlight

Driven Backpack Giveback

Every August, the Driven Foundation and Life Time® provides 400 elementary school students on the southside of Columbus, Ohio, with backpacks filled with more than 5,000 supplies, wellness items, and a BBQ meal. Several Northwoodians volunteered for the 2023 Backpack Giveback to help set up, distribute supplies, and make a difference. 

Northwoods Foundation

Another important way we give back is through the Northwoods Foundation. The employee-driven 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization provides direct financial assistance to people in need in the communities in which Northwoodians work and live.


Created in 2007, the Northwoods Foundation assists families going through a difficult time, including helping pay for unexpected medical expenses, damage from natural disasters, and devastating hardships. The Foundation also donates to numerous local organizations and Northwoods employees have volunteered countless hours over the years to causes supported by our partners.

Holiday Toy Drive

Holiday Toy Drive

Each year through Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Ohio, The Northwoods Foundation and Northwoods employees donate toys and other gifts to children in need.

Blankets for Foster Youth

Blankets for Foster Youth

We host events where our employees make blankets for kids in foster care through My Very Own Blanket. The handmade blankets help give foster kids in care comfort and security.

Sports Camp

Sports Camp

Partnering with LiFEsports at The Ohio State University, the Northwoods Foundation helped fund a sports camp for Dublin, Ohio at-risk youth to prepare them for life and leadership through sports.

Supporting Our Communities

Support means more than money. We also support our communities through action and raising awareness. We don colors for causes important to human services and participate in local charity events. Many of our employees volunteer and hold board positions with local organizations.

Volunteers also empower the next generation through our “TechTok BootCamp,” a 6-week workshop in partnership with After School All-Stars.  Our technical staff introduced kids to basic coding and website building, while other employees shared what it's like to work in the tech industry.  

Wear Blue for Child Abuse Prevention Awareness

Child welfare professionals work tirelessly to keep kids safe. Every April, we wear blue to show our support for this important work during Child Abuse Prevention Month.

Wear Green for Child Support Awareness

Families benefit greatly from Ohio’s child support program, which serves 675,000 kids. During August’s Child Support Awareness Month, Northwoods employees wear green to raise awareness.

Dublin Chamber of Commerce Corporate Charity Cup

Our home town of Dublin, Ohio shares our passion for service. We show support by participating in "A Battle of Businesses" that promotes employee wellness and community involvement.

Environmental Responsibility

Because our solutions digitize paper-based work, we have an immediate, positive impact on the environment by reducing printed paper. Our cloud-based solutions that are powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS) also support long-term net-zero carbon sustainability and renewable energy goals.
