Giving back to our community has always been a huge priority here at M&I. In the last few months, we've been honored to support a number of different events and organizations like Chico Legion Baseball, Pleasant Valley High School's Sober Grad Night, Chico High School Ag Boosters, Run for Food, and the Marsh Junior High Basketball program, to name a few. We believe strongly in supporting our community, and with the holiday season upon us, and altruism on the brain, we thought we'd offer up a few resources for gift programs that benefit nonprofits. Happy Holidays!

  • For the wine lover, check out One Hope Wine. Profits benefit a wide range of causes, from global healthcare, veterans, and pet adoptions. 
  • Local + Lejos offers home goods like rugs, baskets, and pillows, all handmade by artisans from a range of countries like Cambodia, India, Mexico and Rwanda. 
  • The Audubon Society helps to protect birds like the Snowy Owl, Northern Cardinal, or the Peregrine Falcon. 
  • Working to end world hunger for nearly 70 years, Heifer International links communities and helps bring sustainable agriculture to low income areas. You can choose what type of animal you'd like to send to a family in need, and with a clear ripple effect of positive impact, this is one you can feel good about for years to come. 
  • Access to clean and safe drinking water is something most of us take for granted. Charity: Water is a nonprofit that helps bring that access to people in developing countries. 

From all of us at Matson & Isom Technology, Happy Holidays!
