What was great about implementing Groundswell was it gave us a modern, easy-to-use program that immediately leveled the playing field between us and the largest financial institutions on the planet.

…this was the best way to connect a diverse team with causes that matter most to each of them. I want to be a part of running a company that is creating a give-back culture, and my hope is that others who want to be a part of that will join us and those who are already here will be inspired to stay.
