Rack Gives Back

Rackspace Giving Guidelines

To be eligible for contributions, organizations must:

  • Qualify for non-profit status under the Internal Revenue Code
  • Benefit the local communities served by Rackspace Hosting
  • Demonstrate sound and responsible financial policies and management
  • Be aligned with Rackspace's philanthropic focus (science, technology, engineering, arts, math)

As a rule, we do not make contributions to:

  • Individuals
  • Organizations that practice discrimination by race, color, creed, gender, sexual orientation, age, status as a protected veteran, religion or national origin
  • Projects of a political nature
  • Religious organizations
  • Disease-specific groups or health/medical-based causes, except under special circumstances
  • Organization-based walks, runs, tournaments, skeet shoots, etc.
  • Hospital or city projects, except under special circumstances
  • Banquets, parties, galas or community festivals, except under special circumstances
  • Special-occasion or goodwill advertising
  • Loans or investments
  • Merchandise or advertising promotions

Why do we focus on these areas?

  • Arts & Culture: We ask Rackers to think creatively every day. We challenge them to innovate, to be resourceful, and to create an experience like none other for our customers. Creativity is a talent that must be cultivated. Building a culture of creativity takes explicit focus. This is important to San Antonio, and it’s important to Rackspace.
  • Education: A great education can elevate an entire community. We believe in the transformative value of education — and we walk the walk.
  • Technology: As an IT company, we encourage the organizations we work with to focus on their core business, not wrestle with outdated systems. We are the service leader in the cloud, and we believe non-profits deserve to have nimble, efficient IT solutions that help them do great work in our community.
