At SignUpGenius, we’re constantly inspired by how people use our site to change communities in significant ways. Whether it’s coordinating volunteers at a local homeless shelter or donating supplies for mission trips around the world, SignUpGenius users truly make a difference. That’s a big reason corporate giving is such an important part of our culture.
We focus our giving in particular on organizations that care for vulnerable and at-risk children. Here are some of the worthy causes we’ve donated to recently:
SignUpGenius financially supports Brookstone Schools in our hometown Charlotte, and employees partner as “buddies” for two children who attend the school. Brookstone provides a private Christian education to children from financially challenged families. In 2016, SignUpGenius gave $21,000 to the school.
Christian Adoption Services
SignUpGenius gives regularly to this Matthews, N.C.-based nonprofit that helps match children with adoptive parents. The agency has helped place more than 2,000 children domestically and from 18 foreign countries. This past year, we were able to provide $18,000 to CAS’ efforts to place children in forever families.
African Christians Fellowship International
SignUpGenius partners with ACFI to provide education for indigent and orphaned children in Liberia. In addition to regular donations, in 2014 we donated to help send a team to Liberia to work at two mission homes. The money went toward maintenance projects as well as needs such as bed nets, school supplies and equipment. In 2016, SignUpGenius donated more than $32,000.
SignUpGenius supports Samaritan Purse’s efforts to help victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, famine and disease in Jesus’ name. We donated more than $22,000 in 2016.
SignUpGenius is committed to helping children achieve. We've donated to a number of education-related causes, including:
Giving back to the Charlotte community we call home is important to SignUpGenius. Here are some other causes that have touched our heart:
Employee Matching Gift Program
To show our support for the causes our staff members are passionate about, SignUpGenius matches employee donations to registered 501c3 nonprofits. Each SignUpGenius employee is entitled to a $500 matching contribution per year.
SignUpGenius matched more than $5,000 in 2016 to organizations including Second Harvest food bank, St. Baldrick’s Foundation, Compassion International, Beds for Kids, World Vision and Feed the Children.
