Stack Gives Back 2019

Each year, Stack Exchange donates $100 on behalf of each of our volunteer moderators. This is a long-held tradition that began in 2009, and we’re excited to continue it today. We’re pleased to announce that the donations have been made and the funds are at work helping these really awesome causes.

Stack Overflow Gives Back 2017

One of the most lasting gestures of philanthropy is when folks give so generously of their time and hard-earned knowledge so that others may benefit from their efforts. 2017 marked the year we saw Stack Overflow surpass 15 million questions and almost 4 million more across the network. But this year also marked another milestone…

Stack Overflow Gives Back 2016

It’s hard to believe this has been a thing for eight years now. Every year since 2009, we’ve set aside this time of year to remember the people and the organizations who desperately need our help. It started with Stack Overflow LLC when three employees and three sites decided to “give back” with some charitable…

It’s that time of year again — a time when we reach out beyond the Stack Exchange community to remember the organizations and people who desperately need our help. Each year, we set aside this time and offer to make a $100 donation to charity on behalf of each moderator representing their community. We’ve been doing this…

Stack Exchange Gives Back 2011

I’m sitting up late this evening trying to think of an inspirational way to end this year with some grandiloquent statement about our growth and the great job everyone has done this year. I don’t know; maybe it’s the glow of the Christmas tree behind me, or the eggnog recipe I’ve been experimenting with… but,…

Stack Overflow Gives Back

It’s hard to believe that Stack Overflow has been “a thing” for over a year and a half now. I quit my job in March 2008, we announced Stack Overflow in April 2008, and the site was launched in September 2008. The rest is kind of a blur. During 2009, the company became somewhat stable,…
