Anthropologists tell us that humanity’s secret to success as a species has been our ability to collaborate and cooperate to ensure the survival of the family, the tribe, the nation or whatever group we are closely affiliated with.

With 52 Tuesdays in a year, companies can infuse empathy, meaning and purpose into their culture all year long
It’s been a week since #GivingTuesday 2017, and we’re still overwhelmed by the incredible participation of companies – and their people – in this global movement.
From individual giving to companies mobilizing their workforces, #GivingTuesday broke records again. People and companies around the world harnessed the power of prosocial behavior and the reach of social media to come together around the values of giving back, raising a staggering $264.6 million worldwide in its sixth year.
Whether through aging or injury, any of us can lose our ability to interact with the world around us, either temporarily or permanently. That’s why it’s important to remember that accessibility is for everyone.

Two of Benevity's resident, self-aware tech talents reconvene to discuss their experience in the industry
At Benevity, we encourage our team to be bold, and the bravery required to do so doesn't escape us. Rosemary Sanchez, a People Leader for the Web Software Development team and Bailey Copithorne, a User Experience Designer, share their individual (and sometimes surprisingly similar) experiences as women in the technology sector.
The following is the continuation of a question-fueled repartee between two of Benevity’s best and brightest. They continue to prove bold enough to "brave the ask"; and what’s more? To share their answers.
Donations from nearly 300 leading companies and their employees signify a shift to event-triggered giving
Data from the Benevity client community shows a significant shift in charitable donation trends in 2016 and 2017, with human rights organizations taking top slots from long-standing leaders. This data comes from nearly 300 global companies representing more than $1 billion in donations to more than 100,000 charities worldwide.
The series of storms that rocked Southeast Asia, the Caribbean and the southern United States has now passed, and the earthquakes in Mexico appear to have subsided. As residents slowly move back home, we at Benevity have been touched by the response of our clients and their employees. Together, they have raised almost $20 million (and counting) in response to the hurricanes through hundreds of dedicated fundraising campaigns. And they’re coming together again to support people affected by the wildfires that devastated California.
