Strengthening Kansas City Communities

community involvement


NetStandard believes it has a powerful role to play in strengthening the communities in and around Kansas City. Our genuine desire to make a meaningful social impact is the fundamental basis of all of our charitable programs. Over our more than fifteen years in business, we have opened our doors to many not-for-profit organizations who have recognized the value and added efficiency of outsourced IT. We can say it is truly a pleasure to support their missions.
