We believe in investing in our community.

For more than 30 years, Datatrend and its coworkers have contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars and over a thousand volunteer hours to improve the communities where we live and work. Investment in our communities is just one of many ways Datatrend demonstrates our commitment to being a good corporate citizen.

9th Annual Datatrend Bowlathon

$18,051 was raised for the Pay It Forward Fund to support women fighting breast cancer! As October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we held our 9th annual bowlathon fundraiser for Minnesota-based charity the Pay It Forward Fund. The Pay It Forward Fund is a non-profit organization that helps patients pay their bills while they undergo treatment for breast and women’s cancers. They pay essential living expenses so patients can focus on what’s really important – getting well.
