In light of the tragic events in our Sage Intacct Advantage 2017 host city, Las Vegas, as well as the wildfires in California, there are massive recovery efforts underway. Sage Foundation and Sage Intacct would like to give everyone the opportunity to lend their support. In response, Sage Foundation will match the first $5,000 raised for each fund, for a potential donation total of $10,000 to disaster relief. Sage Foundation is honored to be able to be part of these efforts to show our care for those in need in our communities.
