Giving Back

A vision to make
a significant positive impact in the world

The Sequoia Impact Program exists to leverage our team’s unique abilities and mobilize the Sequoia network to improve our local and global communities. We do this by providing healthcare and educational support to empower those in need.

The Sequoia Impact Fund

The Sequoia Impact Fund is a charitable giving account that advances our philanthropic efforts in our local and global communities. In 2020, Sequoia has made financial grants to our non-profit partners to alleviate food insecurity, address mental health challenges, support racial justice, help people gain access to economic opportunity and uplift the most vulnerable people in our communities. Thank you for joining us to serve this important mission. 

Sequoia Champions Health and Wellbeing for Underserved Communities

Year-Long Matching Gift Campaign starts March 2021

Sequoia will match donations made to the Sequoia Impact Fund up to $250K (limit $10K per donor), for the health and wellbeing of underserved communities. All funds raised will be given to non-profit organizations supporting this cause.​ Every 2 months, Sequoia will feature a new non-profit. Each non-profit will be awarded up to $50K during this campaign so that multiple organizations can be supported.

Sequoia’s Spotlight Charity for March and April is Peer Health Exchange

Peer Health Exchange’s mission is to empower young people with the knowledge, skills, and resources to make healthy decisions. We do this by training college students to teach a skills-based health curriculum in under-resourced high schools across the country.​​

Sequoia will match donations made via the donate now button below.

The Sequoia Impact Fund is a Corporate Advised Fund at Silicon Valley Community Foundation (SVCF), a 501(c)(3) public charity registered in the United States, EIN# 20-5205488. Contributions are processed by SVCF and are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. You’ll receive a donation confirmation receipt for tax purposes. Additionally, SVCF will send a formal acknowledgment letter with tax-deductible language to those who provide their address.

Impact supporters speak

“Thanks to everyone at Sequoia Consulting Group, over 800 Ravenswood students’ lives have been positively impacted in some way. Whether it was a donated backpack filled with essential school supplies needed to succeed during distance learning, or a Valentine’s Day Gift Bag filled with sweet notes and treats bringing big smiles to their faces. Your time and effort made a difference.”

Jazmin Sosa

“Bring Change to Mind’s partnership with Sequoia and its team members has been an invaluable part of our ability to scale, amplify and support our students in this critical work to normalize conversations around mental health and save lives. We are grateful for the opportunity to grow this partnership and engage more deeply.”

Pamela Harrington

“I could not be more impressed with our Impact program. I always love to be able to give to others (whether financially or with my time and skills), and am delighted by the opportunities that Sequoia has provided to enable such contributions.”

David

“I was so proud today to hear about Sequoia’s involvement in Out of Darkness. Suicide and suicide awareness are topics that people are shy, embarrassed, or even too ashamed to talk about. I love that Sequoia is helping to change that.”

Marie

“This cause and organization is very important to me personally and it really means so much to see Sequoia not only participate but sponsor the AFSP and the walks. Thank you!”

Andrea

“I am grateful to work for a company that values and works to champion mental health and compassionate care. I lost my cousin to cancer last year and have found art to be very therapeutic in my grieving process. I created handmade cards representing our community partners and their missions. I hope that they bring as much joy to them as it did for me while creating them.”

Thao

“I just want to say how grateful we are to Sequoia for today’s excellent HR Thought Leadership: Building a Social Impact Program. Great insights, especially the importance of listening to your workers and having executive leadership engagement.”

Client impact

Sequoia takes pride in supporting people-first organizations and giving back to the communities where we live and work.

That’s why when you bundle benefits with two or more services (401(k), Global Services, Return to Work, Risk Management) through Sequoia, we will make a $250 donation to the Sequoia Impact Fund in appreciation for your trust in us. This is just one of the many ways you can join us and our partner charities in making a positive impact for social good.
