Proud to Support KSS

What does STEM meanGirls were asked to use the STEM acronym to come up with 4 adjectives that described themselves.

As an IT consultancy that helps organizations streamline operations and build dynamic competitive advantages, at Avout we know the importance of a solid educational foundation in STEM subjects. We provide IT projects and staffing, Oracle license sales, strategic-level advisement, and managed services. This is what allows us to give back to our community.

Through 1% for the Planet, we support non-profit organizations focused on sustainability. Jake Wiebe, our Chief Giving Officer, selected the recipients of Avout’s donations based on two things close to his and his family’s hearts—biking and the Colorado outdoors. “We wanted to pick organizations that were doing meaningful work, and be able to make contributions that were sizable enough to make a difference,” said Barry Wiebe, our President and CEO.

Since 2011, Avout has been donating 1% of sales to Colorado Mountain Club, a group that spreads its passion by advocating mountain enjoyment and study, and the Colorado chapter of Bicycles for Humanity, an organization that donates bicycles to empower people in developing countries with transportation.

This year, we’re thrilled to add Keystone Science School and Outdoor Lab Foundation to the organizations we support. "I found Keystone Science School on the 1% for the Planet participants’ list while hunting for a non-profit that provides outdoor education," said Wiebe. "We are excited to fund the Girls in STEM program and were happy with this weekend’s turnout of 66 3rd-6th graders. KSS continually impresses me with how they run their programs.”
