We may be a company, but we’re people first, and we do what we can to help our community and friends. Below are some of the ways we at Groove Commerce pay it forward both as a company and individually.
Groove's Company Commitment
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Maryland
While the efforts of Big Brother Big Sisters made it a no “brainer” to team up with them, the staff for the Central Maryland chapter allows this to be one of our favorite partnerships. Groove supports BBBS throughout the year by providing ongoing creative services for their various events. In addition to landing page design and development, CEO Ethan Giffin puts on his chef hat once a year for the “Biggest Little Tailgate Event” at Ravens Stadium for a night of great food and friendly competition with other Baltimore businesses to see who can serve the best tailgate spread.
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
Groove is proud of its partnership with Baltimore Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Mack actively participates throughout the year in fundraising efforts and Groove provides ongoing creative services for many of the chapter events. These events allow for this chapter to continue to outperform itself year in and year out. In addition to this ongoing partnership, Mack serves as a chairman for the Baltimore Wine Opener Event held annually in November in downtown Baltimore. The success of this organization towards raising funds to find a cure make this a special partnership for Groove.
The Jonathan Ogden Foundation
With the amount of “Purple Passion” at Groove Commerce, it seemed like a natural fit to partner with one of the all time great Ravens for a great cause. Groove designed and continues to manage the online presence for the Jonathan Ogden Foundation. The purpose of the foundation is to assist young people in disadvantaged communities develop self esteem through athletics and education. With an annual golf tournament and boxing event, Jonathan Ogden continues to do great things for his foundation and the inner city youth of Baltimore.
