Goodera, the world’s largest volunteering platform, and RaisedBy.Us (RBU), the only nonprofit dedicated to helping next-generation employers amplify their social good in the world, have collaborated on a strategic partnership that will offer a 1-stop solution for impact consulting and volunteering opportunities for customers.
Goodera and RaisedBy.Us have announced a strategic partnership to provide companies with robust, seamless solutions, enabling them to drive social impact through employee volunteering and philanthropy. Through this partnership, Goodera will support RaisedBy.Us’ clients in planning and scaling their volunteering programs, while RaisedBy.Us will provide consulting services for CSR and corporate giving to Goodera’s clients.
What this partnership means for the social good industry:
As the world returns to business as usual, organizations are facing hurdles when it comes to meaningfully engaging their workforces who might be on-site or distributed. A partnership that packages employee volunteering with Goodera’s experiences and scalable impact strategy consulting with RaisedBy.Us is an excellent fit for employers.
Furthermore, millennials and Gen-Z, two demographics that comprise most of the workforce, need more than remuneration and perks to feel engaged at work, turning corporate purpose and social giving into ‘must-haves’. Goodera and RaisedBy.Us’ partnership provides holistic solutions for businesses to design impactful and engaging CSR programs and volunteering opportunities to implement them, creating an elevated experience for all parties involved.
RaisedBy.Us helps high-growth companies build and run CSR and employee give-back programs that help individuals and businesses support the causes they care about through charitable giving, volunteering, and community activism. RBU helps these organizations succeed in the social good space by providing them the tools needed to implement a comprehensive social good strategy that is embedded in company culture, not just an add-on.
Combining to contribute – how this partnership benefits non-profits and employees:
Goodera’s curated team-based in-person, hybrid and virtual volunteering experiences combined with RaisedBy.Us’ easy-to-use plug-and-play functionality will allow employers to engage their workforce better and structure their social outreach more effectively. The partnership will also benefit nonprofits by empowering employees and organizations to exert greater control over their volunteering experience.
