Since its founding, Bentley Systems and its colleagues have embraced a culture of “giving back” to communities –
both near and far – in need.
Colleagues in the U.S. and Canada have been longtime supporters of the United Way. For the 2014 campaign,
their record donations exceeded $425,000.
In August 2014, Bentley Systems launched the Bentley Responds Fund. This new fund created an avenue
for colleagues worldwide to participate in giving programs geared to providing critical and sustainable
infrastructure to communities in need:
• The fund’s Sustaining Infrastructure campaign supports Engineers Without Borders-Australia,
Engineers Without Borders-USA, the Hunger Project, and Water For People.
• A new Disaster Relief and Resiliency campaign supports seven international charities that help
communities increase the capacity of local communities to prepare for natural disasters and to help
them respond in the aftermath by providing shelter, food, water, medical care, and supplies.
