Working closely with a number of local nonprofits, frequently facilitates outreach and volunteer opportunities for members and their employees. In 2018, we helped organize several industry-wide days of action that brought the San Francisco tech community together to give back to those in need. We plan to continue the tradition of giving in years to come.

9/11 Day of Action partnered with HandsOn Bay Area, the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank, and 9/11 Day to turn September 11 from a day of tragedy into a day of doing good. We connected many of our members with the event organizers and saw outstanding turnout from Cruise Facebook, LinkedIn, Okta, and Salesforce. Honoring this National Day of Service and Remembrance, our members joined businesses, policymakers, and volunteers across the nation to pack over 1.5 million meals for people in need.

One City Gives

In December 2018, partnered with Meals on Wheels San Francisco to host the inaugural One City Gives, an industry-wide day of volunteering to wrap and deliver gifts to seniors in the Tenderloin. Assemblymember David Chiu, District 6 Supervisor-Elect Matt Haney, Founder and CEO of Affirm Max Levchin, Executive Director Jennifer Stojkovic, and Meals on Wheels San Francisco Board Member Jose Allen gave opening remarks. More than 150 employees from member companies then set out to deliver holiday gifts to over 1,000 seniors in the heart of San Francisco. Get a full recap of One City Gives on our blog.
