Philanthropy

At Nyla Technology Solutions, philanthropy is at the heart of our corporate culture and one of the motivating factors driving our shared philosophy. We recognize the essential bonds that weave together both our local communities and country as a whole. It is vital, for this reason, to not only engage with, but also, to support organizations that work hard to strengthen neighborhoods, promote education, and help those who have bravely served our nation.

Raising Money for Our Vets

K9s for Warriors Logo

Supporting our veterans is a passion here at Nyla and we have been raising money for K9s for Warriors, our vet charity of choice, for years. K9s for Warriors is an inspirational organization that rescues and trains shelter dogs to be Service Dogs who are then paired with their Warriors with service-connected Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and Military Sexual Trauma (MST). Did you know that every 65 minutes a veteran commits suicide? K9s for Warriors’ mission is to end veteran suicide and return veterans to a life of dignity and independence. They provide PTSD Service Dogs of the highest quality at no cost to the vets in their program in order to help restore their physical and emotional independence. Their focus is on helping the veteran and Service Dog build a bond to facilitate healing and recovery. As the healing takes place, the reintegration to society begins.

Over the years, Nyla has hosted several events to benefit K9s for Warriors including our popular Chili Cook-Off competition and our Chili for Charity event. One of our most memorable veteran fundraisers was our Pie-in-the-Face contest which began with employees, friends, family, and the Nyla community pledging money to vote for the executive of their choice and ended with our CEO, Shana Cosgrove, getting pie’d in the face at the Nyla Holiday Party! These successful events have not only raised a lot of money for K9’s for Warriors over the years, but have also brought much needed attention to the important issues facing our veterans today.

Additional Charities We Support

Baltimore City Public Schools Logo

Nyla is very proud of the work they’ve done with Baltimore City Public Schools over the years. Nyla’s annual Back-to-School drive, which provides resources to Collington Square Elementary School in Baltimore City, raised $7,500 in 2020, which allowed us to purchase and donate over 24 Chromebooks. And, through a partnership with Baltimore Robotics Center and PCs for People, an additional 40 laptops were provided helping these deserving students put their best foot forward.

Maryland Food Bank Logo

Stable communities grow and flourish best when people are able to meet their most basic needs with access to food, shelter, and potable water. Organizations like the Maryland Food Bank work tirelessly to provide such services to those in need, striving to end hunger throughout the State of Maryland. By donating both time and funding, we at Nyla Technology Solutions support this admirable goal.

Girls Who Code Logo

A Computer Science major herself, our CEO, Shana Cosgrove, highly values work advancing the exposure of girls at a young age to technology related fields. Such experience expands future career choices and provides not only new opportunities for students, but also a larger and more diverse pool of qualified individuals ready to tackle tomorrow’s challenges. Helping to close the gender gap in computer science education is very close to our heart at Nyla.

Wikipedia Logo

Central to progress and the development of an informed population is the free flow of knowledge. The online resource Wikipedia provides free and easy access to a vast array of information on nearly any subject. It encourages links between branches of learning and provides a forum on which both amateurs and experts can work with one another to continually inform and refine the material provided.

Habitat for Humanity Logo

Habitat for Humanity is a global nonprofit housing organization working in local communities across all 50 states and around the world. Habitat’s vision is of a world where everyone has a decent place to live and they work toward that vision by building strength, stability, and self-reliance in families in need of decent, affordable housing. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. Nyla was able to jump in and get their hands dirty when they built a playhouse for Habitat, which was then auctioned off to raise money for this worthwhile organization.
