“Startups Give Back was an absolute pleasure to work with. We talked about what our group was most interested in and the dates we were available and within a few days they had an organization lined up for our group! Our timing changed a bit from when we first spoke and they went above and beyond to make the new date and time work for us. We had a few other volunteer activities that week so working with Startups Give Back made my life so much easier and made getting our office out and volunteering easy and enjoyable! If you want to get your company out into your community but aren’t sure where to start or how to do it, I would highly recommend using Startups Give Back!”

“Looking for volunteer opportunities for a large team is more difficult than you’d think. Startups Give Back makes it easy. We had a specific day and time frame in which a large group of us were available to volunteer. SGB was able to do the heavy lifting for me in contacting local nonprofits and finding one that could leverage my team during the time frame that we were available. We were paired with a great nonprofit called Urban Sprouts. It was a rewarding experience and the team had a blast working with the students and helping out in the garden. I would certainly recommend working with SGB anytime you want to organize a volunteer event for your team!”

It can be really difficult to find volunteer opportunities for large groups in the Bay Area on specific days and times, but Jeremy and SGB made it so easy for me! I will definitely be reaching out to them the next time we are planning a volunteering event for the team.”
