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.

Built for privacy

There are countless issues that employees may want to keep private.

Groundswell lets them. We ensure that company administrators are unable to see where individual employees have donated – allowing them to participate as their authentic selves.
