The Current State

Most Americans want to give back but only ~50% donate to charity

  • The workplace is a differentiated forum to engage employees, especially millennials, about philanthropy
  • Emerging corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts have caught on as evidenced by the jump from 20% to 80% of S&P 500 companies adopting CSR programs between 2011 and 2016
  • CSR efforts feature modern workplace giving programs that enable employees to connect with and invest in a range of important causes

Workplace giving programs are dated and ineffective

  • Despite directing billions of dollars to charity, workplace giving programs have a median employee participation rate of just 9%
  • Over 60% of Americans work for employers that lack internal CSR teams to manage social good programs
  • Without programmatic features provided by CSR teams, technology alone cannot create a successful workplace giving program


Workplace philanthropy is good for business

Why? CSR programs:

  • Increase employee productivity by up to 13%

  • Reduce employee turnover by up to 50%

  • Increase employee engagement up to 7.5%

The Solution


  • Enables social good through employee giving, volunteerism and community events
  • Partners with employers that are excited to engage in social good activities but lack internal CSR capabilities
  • Amplifies CSR technology platforms by driving participation rates
  • Replicates the work an internal CSR team would do for an employer and provides the nudge to employees who are ready to give back
  • Engages tens of thousands of mostly millenial employees, creating lifelong habits of giving back
