Supporting PDXWIT | The Advancement of Women and Minorities in Technology

With over three decades in the technology industry, Matrix Networks is painfully aware of the disparities facing women and minorities in technology. In 2020, we decided to shift our philanthropic efforts to support organizations and individuals looking to advance their careers in technology. However, giving money is not enough...

As a Platinum Sponsor of PDXWIT, Matrix Networks has developed a special scholarship program that will sponsor the CCNA certification of individuals looking to grow a career in the field of Network Administration and IT Management. If you have ever worked with us, you know that networking and data infrastructure is something we are deeply passionate about and have seen the level of professionalism and growth in our own employees as they have made the investment of securing this level of certification. Now it is our time to give back!







Youth Programs | Supporting the Leaders of Tomorrow with Actions Today!

Supporting youth athletics and other programs related to the growth and positive upbringing of children in our community has always been a passion of the leadership and employees of Matrix Networks. 

This passion stems from Matrix Networks' founder, David Ness, as athletics and youth programs helped him as a young man tremendously. It was important to David to carry on this tradition and continue to give back to the programs that helped him develop as a young man, as well as finding new avenues to give back to similar programs. This torch is still carried today as Matrix Networks continues to support youth programs and youth athletic organizations.
