Outstanding Corporate Philanthropist

Maplesoft Group was honoured at the 16th Annual Ottawa Association of Fundraising Professionals Philanthropy Awards, held at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier and attended by nearly 400 people. On behalf of Maplesoft, President & CEO Jody Campeau received the award for Outstanding Corporate Philanthropist. Winning this award puts Maplesoft in the company of amazing organizations such as Bell Canada, Royal Bank Financial Group, Mitel Networks, CISCO Systems, TD Bank Financial Group and MBNA Canada Bank. 

To receive this award, we were lucky enough to be nominated by John Ouellette, VP Philanthropy of the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation, in recognition of our donation to their Courage Campaign. When asked how Maplesoft has inspired and motivated the community in the practice and philosophy of philanthropy, John wrote: “This outstanding philanthropic corporate donation by a relatively young company provides a shining example of how other mid-sized businesses in our community can also make an important impact in the battle against cancer and other causes. The entrepreneurial nature of the gift by Maplesoft Group, the boldness of their commitment and the altruistic spirit in which it was made, stands as a model for other companies in our community. They have led by example.Their vision and passion will surely take them to even greater business and charitable achievements in our community. They are a certainly a company to watch out for.”
 
This was a great evening for Maplesoft, and a true reason to be proud to work for such a great organization.
