How Companies are Giving Back to their Communities

With the holiday season quickly approaching, we wanted to connect with companies across the tech scene to see how they are taking part and giving back to their communities.

Bamboo Health is committed to giving back to our local communities and to organizations focused on fostering growth and equality across populations. In 2022, we had the privilege of partnering with organizations in the greater Louisville area including Sweet Evening Breeze, supporting Louisville’s LGBTQ+ young adults; Team Eastern Kentucky Flood Relief Fund, in response to the devastating floods in eastern Kentucky; Girls with Impact, equipping teenage girls with the skills, knowledge and confidence to become future leaders; and Junior Achievers. In Boston, we participated in the Tufts University Women in Tech conference, which seeks to bring together talented, passionate women and femme nonbinary individuals who are interested in learning about technology and want to join the field academically or professionally. Our international efforts were focused on the humanitarian crisis caused by the war in Ukraine through partnership with the Ukrainian House in Warsaw, Poland, and SOS Children’s Villages in Ukraine. Our team members across the world participated in charitable causes important to them including our Warsaw team who used their annual “Away Day” to build dog houses for local animal shelters (picture attached). Additionally, many of our team continue to focus on health equity by donating a portion of their paychecks to CHC (Creating Healthier Communities).

As a business that believes in giving back, Veeva employees receive an amount equivalent to 1% of their base salary to support the nonprofits of their choice through the annual 1% Veeva Giving program. This program ensures Veeva’s support for charitable causes is entirely employee driven, without dictating corporate causes, gaining a commercial advantage or exchanging for preferential treatment. Among those that have benefited are St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, American Red Cross, Nova Ukraine, Doctors Without Borders, SickKids Foundation and United Nations Foundation.

“It was such a different experience than what I think of for corporate volunteering. I may or may not be considering a small stint as a farmer after yesterday’s sweet potato harvesting…”

“I felt revitalized after the event. It was nice to be outside in nature.”

“We need to sign up and do another shift in the spring.”

Members of the Forrester TEI team took advantage of Forrester's Volunteer Day benefit and harvested sweet potatoes at Drumlin Farm in Lincoln, MA . Our team was looking for face-to-face opportunities to get together and we got to do that - while giving back! Drumlin's produce is sold through their CSA, to downtown restaurants, at their food stand AND 15% is donated to local food pantries every year. It was incredible to be a part of this effort and was very different from our market research analysis.

On Veterans Day this year, The Recorded Future Veterans Organization celebrated at the Armed Forces Retirement Home in Northwest Washington, DC. They joined military veterans who reside at the home, locally based veterans across the DMV, actively serving military members, and supporters from companies and organizations across various industries. They spent the day honoring and celebrating our military veterans, while enjoying a day of music, food, and fun, focused on raising money for the Old Soldiers Home Foundation which supports the home and its veterans with projects focused on wellness, vitality, and camaraderie.
