CASE STUDY: YGG Partners with Baxter International Inc. on National CSR Effort
In the fall of 2016, Baxter approached YouGiveGoods with the idea of running a National Hunger Event to raise food for local hunger relief organizations in locations where Baxter employees live and work. The "Campaign to Fight Hunger" was the company's first U.S.-focused campaign which incorporated monetary donations to charities of the locations' choice based on employee participation, Baxter International Foundation match and local employee engagement opportunities.
See below graphic on how all the moving parts came together seemlessly. View their event page to see the details here.
Baxter was able to offer all three components of their financial incentive program, highlight them each on their event pages, track and execute the monetary donations (totaling over $40,000) with 100% pass through via YouGiveGoods Foundation to 16 individual food pantries. Employees purchased 26,638 food items during the event each receiving a tax-deductible receipt. All brand-new food items were shipped in bulk when the drive was over to the proper food pantry.
Whether executed at the headquarters level or at each local office, YouGiveGoods can make your workplace giving events easier, more engaging and more impactful than ever before.
