New Product Offers Fast, Low-Cost Access to More Than 2 Million Vetted Global Charities
CALGARY, AB – May 3, 2016 – Benevity, Inc., the global leader in online workplace giving, matching, volunteering and grant management solutions, released Benevity OneWorld™, the only complete international giving and volunteering product available for deploying corporate and employee engagement programs across borders. Benevity OneWorld allows companies and their people fast, localized and cost-effective access to over 2 million global causes spanning more than 200 countries.
Benevity OneWorld is delivered through Benevity’s award-winning SaaS workplace giving and employee engagement product, Spark, and our proprietary platform and API. This ground-breaking offering provides the most global solution to multinational companies attempting to meet the demands of an increasingly diverse workforce that supports smaller, local organizations in far-reaching locations.
“Engaging in prosocial behavior is a cross-cultural phenomenon that helps companies unify their corporate identity and employer brand. Global companies choose Benevity over others because they want to provide consistent employee benefits to their entire workforce, wherever they may live and work,” said Bryan de Lottinville, CEO of Benevity. “Now, your peoples’ passion for giving back no longer has to be bound by their location, language or currency. With Benevity OneWorld, people around the world can find, donate to and track volunteer time for worthy causes in their own backyards and internationally via one seamless, consistent experience.”
Benevity’s social mission is fueled by lowering the cost and administrative burden on charities by providing fund disbursement at scale around the world in a way that’s efficient, compliant with regulatory requirements, and both process and cost-effective for corporate clients and the recipient charities.
According to the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship 2015 Community Involvement Study, 67% of companies with an international footprint give to charities outside their headquarter countries. And companies expect international giving to rise by 25% over the next two years, with the goal of improving their operations in global markets, strengthening community ties internationally and building their reputation with employees and customers outside their headquarter countries.
Through Benevity OneWorld, company employees also have the option to nominate new international charities on an ongoing basis, which are researched and validated by Benevity’s partner in international vetting, TechSoup, which has 65 local affiliate organizations around the world. This unique partnership enables exponentially better scale, speed and impact for all parties – donors, companies and charities – without creating separate payment paths and user experiences for international users. In times of disaster, for instance, employees can quickly have a trusted and easy way to support organizations in any corner of the world that are providing relief and recovery services.
With 15 languages and the ability to donate in virtually any currency, Benevity OneWorld is a localized solution that delivers global reach for charities and donors alike.
