Community

Community involvement has been part of our business since the start. We believe in giving back to the community where we work and live by donating our time, talent, and resources. We are dedicated to help make our community a better place.

Over the years, Bit-Wizards has contributed time and money to support many worthwhile charities, non-profit organizations, and educational institutions along the Northwest Florida and Southern Alabama. In keeping with our own priority of continuing education, we are also involved with many local scholarships and educational events. As of 2011, Bit-Wizards has contributed more than $135,000 to local charities and non-profit organizations.
