Millennials — the largest workforce population — grew up connected through social media. Yet, research shows they crave direct, tangible experiences when giving back.
Give2Get has been designing and executing social impact experiences for the last 20 years. Each experience links civic engagement with company culture. The goal, of course, is to engage individuals.
We don't just produce events, though. We consider your industry, brand values, employees, and potential employees to create a custom experience that is aligned with your overall mission. Research shows that volunteers are the most underserved group during corporate social responsibility programs, but the Give2Get approach makes sure that all stakeholders including the non-profits, volunteers, and corporations have their needs met.
We also work with corporate social responsibility teams to make sure our projects align with the United Nation's sustainable development goals. That could mean working toward a world with no poverty, quality education, or life on land.
Teams that have yet to choose which sustainable development goals they will champion may choose to work with one of our consultants. These consultants recommend not only which sustainable development goals make sense for the company to champion, but also build comprehensive plans to help clients work toward achieving the goals.
Connect Through Days of Impact
Liberty Global, the world's largest provider of television and broadband services, used to throw large parties for their employees. Three years ago, however, the company started working with Give2Get to use volunteer outings to highlight accomplishments. Each year, the organization adopts a different Denver Public School. In 2016, more than 100 employees and family members completely refurbished the entrance to Chelthenham Elementary School, several interior classrooms, and the neighboring Boys & Girls Club's computer learning center.
In 2017, Liberty Global updated Cole Arts & Science Academy by painting murals outside the school's auditorium and near its main entrance. They worked in the library, computer lab, and teachers' lounge, deep cleaning each area, re-shelving library books, and building furniture. Outside, volunteers assisted with landscaping, including making the playground safer. Liberty Global also made donations to the neighboring Boys & Girls Club, including new laptops, speakers, gym mats, board games, and bicycles. A bike repair station, which allows children to learn proper upkeep for their personal bicycles and take care of the ones at the Boys & Girls Club, was installed.
Connect Your Team Nationally
After some internal struggles and a brief hiatus from its national corporate social responsibility program, T-Mobile decided to re-launch its program with Give2Get.
For three years, Give2Get managed T-Mobile's Huddle Up program, which included 36 volunteer days for thousands of employees in locations across the country.
During each activation, the T-Mobile Team improved a local school and provided a monetary donation to cover additional improvements.
Build a Great Culture
Giving is ingrained in DigitasLBi's culture, according to Morgan Carroll, Managing Director of the agency's Chicago office.
For four of the last five years, his office has shuttered its doors on a summer weekday to improve one of Chicago's Public Schools. This summer, they upgraded Piccolo Elementary School by making the third floor, which had been uninhabitable for six years, safe for students.
DigitasLBi North America has also worked with public schools in New York City and Atlanta.
