Working for Good

We are passionate and excited by opportunities to develop innovative websites, portals, and software systems that help champion organizations that actively contribute to social causes.

Over 70% of our partners work in the public and not-for-profit sectors.

We are honored to support our clients in the promotion and execution of the great work they do in their respective communities. These projects are invigorating, rewarding, and most of all, motivate us to continue amplifying good.

What Motivates Us

“When we are helping our clients succeed, we know that spreads a lot further than just them. Because our clients serve the community, our work trickles down to benefit others. It’s not always about the bottom line.”

— Denise Jupp, Director of Operations

“There are so many communities that need a voice and causes that deserve a spotlight. To be able to support those communities and causes through the organizations we work with is both heartwarming and exciting. Every project is a new opportunity to give back and feel good about the work we do.”

— Meg Harding, Production Associate

“One of the most fascinating things about working at Sandbox is the opportunity to work with so many not-for-profit organizations to better support their communities. Whether it’s a small local charity, a national association or an international NGO, Sandbox’s story has been full of rewarding partnerships that in their own ways have positively impacted people.”

— Devin Gauthier, Digital Strategist
