Fully Managed donates 2021 partner award to Indspire program for Indigenous youth education

September 30, 2021 – Ottawa, ON – Fully Managed, a leader in digital business transformation and managed services, is pleased to announce it will donate a recently-awarded Top Services prize through the 2021 Ingram Micro Cisco Footprint Partner Program, to Indspire, a national Indigenous charity that invests in the education of First Nations, Inuit and Métis people.

The Footprint Partner Program is designed to help organizations grow their businesses and develop a sustainable Cisco partner community. Winners are given the choice of several prize packages, including a philanthropic option, which includes $5,000 award from Cisco and a matching $5,000 from Ingram Micro.

“Our team felt strongly that we wanted to give back to the community with this award,” said Beth Walpole, Vice President, Vendor and Partner Management for Fully Managed.  “We are very grateful for the opportunity to support Indspire with its Soaring Futures Fund that assists Indigenous youth with their post-secondary education goals.”

The $10,000 Fully Managed donation will be matched by Canada’s federal government, helping to fund post-secondary education for four indigenous students.

“Working with Fully Managed through the Footprint Partner Program is a very meaningful partnership opportunity for Indspire,” said Mike DeGagné, President & CEO of Indspire. “This support is not only a tangible sign of reconciliation in action, it will also make a very real and meaningful difference to many First Nations, Inuit, and Métis students who are pursuing their goals through education.”
