At BlackFin, community isn't just a place where we conduct business; it's an integral part of who we are and what we stand for.


Our commitment to community goes beyond mere philanthropy; it's a deeply ingrained value that guides our every decision and action. We believe in actively engaging with and supporting the communities where we live, the industry in which we operate, and the charities we support. Whether it's through volunteering, sponsorships, or partnerships – we strive to make a positive impact at the grassroots level while being an example for future leaders. We understand that vibrant communities are the foundation of a thriving society, and we're dedicated to playing our part in ensuring their well-being and prosperity.

April Ball, Chief Marketing Officer : April's charity of choice is Make A Wish Foundation. When a wish is granted, a child replaces fear with confidence, sadness with joy and anxiety with hope. This can have a real and tangible impact on a child’s health. In fact, research shows that wishes have proven physical and emotional benefits that can give children with critical illnesses a higher chance of survival. Doctors and social workers use wishes as part of their treatment plan because wishes are that important.

Noel Stack, Chief Revenue Officer: Noel is active in supporting Susan G. Komen, Research is one of our best weapons against breast cancer. Over the past 30 years, it’s fueled our knowledge of breast cancer and helped us understand that breast cancer is not just a single disease but many diseases, unique to each individual. Thanks to supporters, they’ve been able to provide more than $956M to researchers in 47 states, District of Columbia and 21 countries. And with your help, we’ll keep doing so. Because nothing would make us happier than ending breast cancer forever.
