More than $10 billion has been donated by Benevity clients and their people to over 326,000 nonprofits to-date.
The Calgary tech behemoth announced the impressive stat today, adding that in the past year they added 124 clients, taking the company’s total client portfolio to 940. Almost 21 million users can now access Benevity’s platform, making it the largest corporate purpose software provider in the world.
Of the $10 billion in donations recorded on Benevity’s platform, $3.8 billion was donated by individuals and $6.3 billion by companies.
Importantly, the average donation amount by individuals is less than $50, reflecting broad grassroots engagement versus traditional high net-worth philanthropy. Benevity also reached 46 million volunteer hours and 770,000 positive actions.
“In the face of the uncertainty we’ve seen over the past two years, as well as the current economic challenges, it’s clear that more and more companies are recognizing how social impact translates to business impact,” said Kelly Schmitt, Benevity’s Chief Executive Officer.
“Companies of all sizes are choosing our platform for the role it plays in attracting and retaining top talent, engaging and unifying a hybrid or remote workforce, and building a connected culture, a strong community and a brand that stakeholders trust. Mid-sized companies in particular are seeing the benefits of the ease and efficiency our platform provides to smaller teams and the significant multiplier effect it has on their impact.”
