SailPoint Gives Back: The Future Looks Bright
As we reflect on the past year at SailPoint, the last few months have been an incredible time to see our crew in action on our many giving initiatives as a company. Many of these are projects individual team members or small groups began, but in true SailPoint Crew fashion, we always find ourselves rallying behind our teammates and our communities.
Habitat for Humanity
SailPoint has helped build several Habitat for Humanity homes, and this year we participated in building the Build for Unity home for the Martinez Family. Dozens of our team members spent a collective 600+ hours helping this family achieve home ownership.
We have a group of dedicated cyclists at SailPoint, and you may recall that we had a group do the MS150 last spring. More than 20 of our team members took the road again, this time in the Mamma Jamma ride. They raised more than $13k for breast cancer research and support organizations in the Austin area.
The annual Game Changers Luncheon is an empowering event that benefits Girlstart, a cause near and dear to SailPoint. While SailPoint was proud to sponsor the event, the Women of SailPoint also put together nine baskets for the silent auction which raised over $1,400 dollars for Girlstart!

This has become an annual event at SailPoint, and it draws quite the crowd. For 24 hours, our training room becomes a gaming headquarters for the gamers on our team and our team, friends and family play video games and board games until the sun comes up the next day. This year, our team All for Naut raised more than $15k for Dell Children’s Hospital.
Light the Night
In 2016, the SailPoint Crew rallied around some of our own teammates whose children were diagnosed with Leukemia by fundraising for and walking in Light the Night. Since then, it’s become a team favorite to go out to the Circuit of the America’s race track and walk to support those facing blood cancer. This was our third year to walk, and we raised more than $24k for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society as a result.

Team members around the world participated in Movember this year to raise money for Men’s Health – our first year participating! We managed to gather a few of them at our annual ugly sweater and eggnog party to document the final results.
SailPoint and Okta Give Back
This was a particularly exciting initiative for us, as we were able to team up with our partner Okta. While at EDUCAUSE in Denver, we partnered with Give2Get to build STEM kits for the Boys and Girls Club of Denver. In all, EDUCAUSE attendees joined us to build more than 400 kits with chemistry and electricity projects in them.
Coats for Kids
While it’s always a time for giving back, the holiday season brings ample opportunity to get out into the community. In addition to our annual coat drive for Coats for Kids, we also assembled first aid kids for people experiencing homelessness. At the end of our holiday giving drives, we donated 78 coats, sent 7 people to the Palmer Event Center to sort coats and assembled more than 50 first aid kits.
As we all reflect on the year behind us and look forward to the year ahead, our future looks a little brighter thanks to the giving spirit of this crew.
