Celebrating companies and people that support their communities and causes through passion, technology and a commitment to doing good

Every year, Benevity and our community takes a little time to recognize progressive companies who are harnessing the power of their people and communities through a modern approach to corporate giving and employee engagement. These companies have infused a culture of Goodness into the world through their employees, consumers, communities and beyond. They inspire us with their innovative approaches, their contributions and, most of all, their impact.

We were proud and humbled to honor the following change-makers this year. Here’s a small taste of the kind of exemplary behavior and impact that earned them their torch.
