Vista Principals Contribute $1M to Launch Fundraising Effort
September 1, 2017 – NEWSCYCLE Solutions today announced that it is part of a corporate-wide campaign to provide financial support to non-profit organizations offering local relief activities for victims of Hurricane Harvey that struck Texas over the weekend.
The Principals of Newscycle’s investor, Vista Equity Partners, have committed to donate $1 million and have also set up a CrowdRise account for all Vista family employees to contribute, with all proceeds going directly towards respected organizations engaged in local relief and rebuilding efforts. Vista Chairman and CEO, Robert F. Smith, has encouraged each employee to join him in contributing to this or other relief efforts.
Newscycle is making a company donation of $10,000 and is receiving individual contributions from many of its employees. In addition to financial assistance, Newscycle is also committed to providing accelerated technical support and professional services to the many media companies across Texas and Louisiana that rely on Newscycle technologies to produce and disseminate the news at this critically important time in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
