Square Roots: Our Love for Austin is Radical

OUR MISSION
Inspired by our team, we launched Square Roots in 2014 as a way to give back to the Austin community where we live and work.
OUR JOURNEY
In 2014, we participated in our first Amplify Austin, a 24-hour giving event for Central Texas. We had 100% participation and donated to 19 different non-profits. The team’s response blew us away. We knew we needed something permanent in place to support our Radicals’ altruistic spirits. Just like that, Square Roots was born! To kickstart our efforts, we wanted to find a local nonprofit that aligned with our values and mission. After a lot of research and nominations from our team, one name kept popping up: Girlstart.
The causes near and dear to our Radicals are as varied and unique as each of them.
Girlstart brings STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) education to young girls ages 8 – 14, especially in underserved areas. Their programs help girls build STEM skills and introduce them to STEM careers and female role models. By supporting Girlstart, we’re able to support STEM education and inspire girls to pursue related careers. Girlstart is the perfect fit for our techie bunch! We’re able to take our love of STEM out of the office and help grow diversity in tech by inspiring the next generation of female engineers. Annually, we support Girlstart through donations, events, volunteering, and even teaching. And, we don’t stop there!
We’re excited to grow Square Roots and continue to give back to the Austin community we love.
The causes near and dear to our Radicals are as varied and unique as each of them, so we expanded Square Roots in 2015. Today, we hold quarterly volunteer days for our team, as well as support flexible hours to make regular volunteering a cinch. Additionally, we give all of our teams budget once a year to use toward the nonprofit of their choosing. We’ve supported organizations such as Any Baby Can, Austin Humane Society, Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, and Greengate Farms. Activities like these earned us a spot on Great Place to Work’s list of the Best Workplaces for Giving Back. We’re excited to grow Square Roots and continue to give back to the Austin community we love.
