BURLINGTON, Mass., Aug. 27, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Aura, a unified threat protection platform committed to making digital security simple for everyone, announced today its partnership with DonorsChoose.org, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to ensuring students in every community have the tools and experiences they need for a great education. DonorsChoose.org is a website where public school teachers from across the country request much-needed materials and experiences for their students, and donors can choose the individual classroom projects they want to support.
To inaugurate the partnership and introduce Aura's new corporate social responsibility and giving program focused on education, every Aura employee is being provided a $50 gift card to support a back-to-school initiative of their choosing. Funding local classroom projects will empower Aura employees to select projects in their communities that will enable students to start the academic year properly.
