Featured Story: Scaling Social Impact at Box | Box.org

Bright Funds provides an all-in-one workplace giving and volunteering tool to help companies of all sizes establish and grow their social impact programs. We are proud to share Box | Box.org‘s story about how the Box.org team has scaled their social impact programs using Bright Funds, resulting in incredible support for the nonprofit community.

“In 2014, Box launched its social impact arm, Box.org, to help nonprofits around the world innovate and fulfill their missions by providing technology, skills, and capital. Since then, more than 9,000 nonprofit organizations have received over $10M in support from Box.org in the form of discounted products, capacity-building grants, and pro bono volunteering.”

“Implementing a cloud-based social impact platform fundamentally changed the way Box.org engages with its communities. With the help of Bright Funds, Boxers are easily able to organize volunteer activities for their colleagues, bringing them closer to each other and their communities. Box.org also uses Bright Funds to reward Boxers for referring new hires by providing them with credit they can donate to a nonprofit of their choice. Finally, Bright Funds provides the Box.org team with the data they need to report on employee giving and volunteering trends to stakeholders throughout the company. Box’s employee engagement rate now exceeds 70%—far above the industry average.

“’Since we deployed Bright Funds, Boxers have committed over $500K in employee donations and logged 20,000 hours of volunteering,’ said Christina Louie Dyer, Box.org’s Global Programs Lead. ‘This level of impact would not have been possible without the Bright Funds platform.’”

Okta is a leading provider of single sign-on solutions, which allow employees to easily and securely log in to multiple applications at work. Okta recently launched the Apps for Good program, a “collection of pre-built integrations to help Okta customers securely scale corporate giving and volunteering.” Bright Funds is quick for employers to implement and intuitive for employees to access and use – integrations like Okta make it even easier.
