As the year comes to a close, we’re grateful for the chance to reflect on what an inspiring community of leaders we’ve had the chance to meet and connect with here at As a gesture of our gratitude, we wanted to thank our alumni by making a donation in each of their names to an important cause.

Last week, we encouraged our alumni to visit, an organization launched by a group of Boston startup community leaders who are committed to protecting social justice causes. We invited each alum to tweet their favorite cause, pledging to donate $100 each, up to $10,000, in their honor.

In just a few days, we had already amassed thousands of dollars in donations — we couldn’t have been more thrilled by the response. So, we thought, why stop there?

We’re opening up our pledge to #GiveHope2016 to YOU. We want to expand our impact by opening up our pledge to donate to the broader community. We’ll donate an additional $100 per person, up to $5,000 to anyone who wants to take us up on our offer.

Here’s what we need from you:

  • Visit (a non-partisan site)
  • Choose your favorite cause
  • Share a tweet with the name of your cause
  • Include @GiveHope2016 and @Intelligent_ly
  • Bonus — take the pledge to #GiveHope, not stuff, this holiday season

Check out some tweets from our alumni:

So, click on the cause that is closest to your heart and let us give a gift that you don’t have to wrap.

See ya in 2017.

Happy holidays,
