EarthLink’s Community Initiatives
We’re building the internet the way it was supposed to be, and we’re committed to building our communities as well. That means leveraging our talent, time, and dollars to partner, volunteer, and invest in making our communities better places.
As a leading technology company, we are committed to using the power of connection along with our people to create positive change. Read how EarthLink is making a difference.
Our Mission & How it Aligns with Our Community Efforts
EarthLink’s mission is to help our customers create connections with the world around them. For us, that means finding our customers the right internet speed at the right price.
It also means we understand the essential nature of the internet in our daily lives and how important it is to stay connected to what’s vital: family, friends, work, school, and everything else.
Connection Matters — in Every Community
If our mission is to create and build connections, then supporting technology growth and improving access to education and must be at the center of what we do. For us, that means a commitment to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and helping to create technology leaders.
We also have chosen several organizations to donate time and talent to in our local communities. Read on to learn more about the ways we’re supporting the people already working to make a difference.
