Goodera, the world’s largest virtual volunteering platform, and Deed, a fast-growing giving and volunteering platform, have announced a strategic partnership to provide companies with the best one-stop solution for employee social impact.

This partnership will allow employers to leverage Goodera’s engaging virtual volunteering experiences through Deed’s exciting and easy-to-use platform. Employees can now easily share their time, skills, and money with their favorite causes and charities around the world.

Why this partnership matters to the social good community

The pandemic has been strenuous and challenging for both companies and non-profit organizations. Non-profits have struggled to support their beneficiaries and get access to volunteering resources and funding; whereas companies have struggled to engage a hybrid workforce. Virtual volunteering emerged as an innovative solution, where companies were able to support local non-profits while simultaneously engaging (and retaining) their workforce through exciting virtual activities. Non-profit organizations, on the other hand, can now access skilled volunteers and funding sources at scale across multiple countries.

Goodera’s interactive volunteering event experience, coupled with an extensive and widespread list of NPOs, promises an elevated volunteering experience for all parties involved. The partnership will see employees benefit from a multitude of events to choose from, in addition to prospective webinars, and collaborative branded virtual events.

Furthermore, Deed’s innovative, design-focused platform is a great fit for companies looking to support employees around social impact. Deed’s powerful Slack and native mobile apps allow employees to engage wherever they are, and cutting-edge community features (ideal for ERG’s) help create an inclusive, purpose-driven community through giving back.

Combining to contribute – how this partnership benefits NPOs and employees:

The Deed-Goodera partnership allows employers to manage all social impact initiatives for their employees from a single platform – from matching donations to organizing high-quality volunteering opportunities.

Goodera provides curated team-based virtual volunteering experiences in 60-minute and 30-minute formats that allow employees to give back to their communities from the comfort of their homes. This helps employers better engage their workforce and manage stress levels in an increasingly hybrid working environment.

By using Deed, employers are also able to track, record, and reward (through dollars-for-doers, donation credit, etc) the efforts of their employees.

Non-profit organizations will also benefit from access to skilled volunteers, donors, and corporate matching via the Deed platform.

Abhishek Humbad, Founder and CEO of Goodera says, “We are excited to partner with Deed and offer employers a full suite of volunteering experiences and social impact initiatives. Our team has seen a strong increase in volunteering interest amongst employees driven by their need to give back to their community in these difficult times. A great way to do that is through virtual volunteering, where you not only contribute toward your favorite cause but also enjoy a bonding experience with your colleagues and close ones. We are positive this partnership will allow our combined customers to further unlock their employee engagement and volunteering potential.”

“We couldn’t hope for a more ideal partner in Goodera,” says Deevee Kashi, CEO, and Cofounder of Deed, “Together, we now offer a tailored, high-impact employee giving and volunteering experience for the next generation of employees. Workplace giving is no longer a checking-the-box exercise. With our partnership, we will deliver meaningful engagement through opportunities for companies to contribute time, skills, and money in a meaningful way.”

Abhishek and Deevee will hold a webinar on [ January 12th, 2022] to discuss the partnership in more detail and give attendees a glimpse of the volunteering experience. Visit the launch page here to register.
