At Perficient, we’re proud to be a company comprised of colleagues who recognize the importance of corporate giving and the impact they can make in their local communities. Whether it be through volunteering their time with a local non-profit, contributing their expertise to a special project at a charitable organization, or donating their money to those in need, Perficient colleagues are big believers in giving back.

Make-A-Wish is one of our community partners, and Perficient offers the opportunity to support the foundation through our Adopt-A-Charity company match program. Our first donation through the program dates back many years. Since then, Perficient colleagues have raised money to help Make-A-Wish Foundation grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.
In 2020, we crossed an exciting threshold. Perficient colleagues have donated more than $100,000 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation!
“Together, Make-A-Wish and Perficient are creating life-changing wishes for children,” said Andrea Lampert, Vice President of People, Perficient. “We are a team of generous, caring and giving colleagues, and to achieve this milestone in support of such a tremendous cause is something we’re very proud of.”
Choosing a Global Software Development Partner to Accelerate Your Digital Strategy
To be successful and outpace the competition, you need a software development partner that excels in exactly the type of digital projects you are now faced with accelerating, and in the most cost effective and optimized way possible.
According to the foundation, the wish experience goes beyond a moment in time. Doctors have said that “the wish experience gives their young patients something that medicine cannot – an improved outlook, a better state of mind, and often a newfound strength to fight their illness.” Through the support of Perficient colleagues, we’ve helped to make wishes come true for many children, children like Levi.
Levi wished to have a Nintendo Switch, and we were able to help fulfill his wish, complete with a Nintendo Switch, themed cake, and toy chest filled with goodies.
