Sequoia Introduces Social Impact on the Sequoia People Platform to Make Corporate Social Responsibility Easy for Clients

New offering enables companies to discover and launch vetted social impact programs that support local communities and foster employee engagement.


SAN FRANCISCO – November 16, 2023

Sequoia, the pioneer in compensation and benefits, announced the launch of Social Impact on the Sequoia People Platform. This new offering helps companies provide social impact programs that engage employees and contribute positively to communities in need.  

Since 2001, Sequoia has been committed to facilitating positive change in local, national, and global communities for its clients, partners, and employees. Many of Sequoia’s clients have asked for advice or assistance with making the gift of giving easier. With Social Impact, Sequoia clients now have access to a curated selection of trusted vendors, exclusive discounts, and ready-to-launch experiences for year-round engagement.

Social Impact provides a diverse range of programs that employees can participate in, whether they are in the office, at home, or working virtually. Initial vendors include:

  1. Goodera, which curates tailored volunteering opportunities designed to bring people and purpose closer together. 
  2. Phin for Good, which leverages company-funded donation credits to host employee engagement experiences that support charitable causes. 
  3. Project Helping, which makes the mental health benefits of volunteering highly accessible through their curated Kynd Kits. 

The growing importance of social impact as a business priority is evident, with consumers, employees, and investors increasingly expecting companies to address social issues in their operations. Social responsibility programs also help mitigate the effects of social and environmental challenges and inspire a collective sense of responsibility and care for humanity.  

“At Sequoia, we have a commitment to make a significant positive impact in our local & global community over the next decade,” said Greg Golub, Founder and CEO. “Facilitating social impact on the Sequoia People Platform has long been part of this vision, and we are excited to reach this important milestone in collaboration with our clients.  

To explore Social Impact, Sequoia clients can get started here.
