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.”
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.
