2020 has been a year like no other, but we are pleased to share that Pledge 1% companies continue to do more to address them.  In 2020, for example, DocuSign has made bigger commitments of its resources – its peopleproducts and financial philanthropy – to address the world’s challenges.  Here are some of the ways that they are doing that:

People: On November 18, DocuSign held its annual Global IMPACT Day with thousands of employees in dozens of cities around the world engaging in team-based and individual service activities – from promoting healthy urban forests to helping children in need to supporting isolated seniors. This year, they were volunteering from home and in many cases, with their families. For the first time, given the virtual setting, the company offered a number of kid-friendly events so that Global IMPACT Day was both a moment to make a difference and also an opportunity to help children broaden their understanding of the world’s challenges.

Products: As many nonprofits have pivoted their own operations to the virtual environment, their need for scalable technology to aid them in this digital shift has increased. In 2020, DocuSign increased the budget for in-kind product donations to small nonprofits over four-fold to ensure that every nonprofit that applied for a product donation through its partnership with Techsoup would be served.

Philanthropy: On #GivingTuesday, DocuSign is pleased to share that it is reallocating funds originally earmarked for in person holiday parties to support organizations helping those in need in our communities who are suffering. Employees in dozens of DocuSign’s locations around the world are helping to allocate this new $500k fund to organizations providing critical services in their communities.
