Celebrate good times, come on (Let's celebrate)


This May, CodeWeavers will celebrate its 22nd Birthday! That's right folks, we've been around for 22 years. It's time to celebrate! We will be taking the month to share with you an abundance of special offers (sign up here to stay in the know), a glance at the different facets of our corporate culture, fun facts a CrossOver macOS and Linux release and maybe a cake (who am I kidding, of course there will be cake). So stay tuned, you never know what might pop up this month. It's gonna be fun!

So bring your good times and your laughter too
We gonna celebrate your party with you

Come on now!

Some companies celebrate employee milestones with cupcakes, some get a special parking spot, some might get lunch with the boss, some might be blessed with company apparel. Some might be called to a ‘Thank You’ meeting, some might get a certificate of achievement, some might get a handwritten note, some might get their picture on a wall of fame.

CodeWeavers is not like ‘some’ company. Since its inception, CodeWeavers marks the passage of 5 years of service to the company by donating $500 to the employee’s charity of choice. As we prepare this month to celebrate CodeWeavers 22nd birthday, I present to you some of the philanthropic causes that are near and dear to the hearts of the CodeWeavers people. Feeling generous? I encourage you to donate to one of our causes.

Ronald McDonald House
Why is this charity important to you?  When you're not living near a tertiary hospital, having a seriously ill child can be financially prohibitive.

My wife works at a children's hospital and sees first hand the benefits it brings to needy families. RHMC has a presence in 64 countries and has helped millions of families. Donate Now!



Bethany Academy
Why is this charity important to you?  Bethany Academy is my daughter's private Christian school.

In the last five years, approximately 98 percent of loans in the HOPE network have been repaid. Donate Now!
