The Social Impact team empowers nonprofits and the greater social sector to drive positive and lasting contributions to the world with GitHub products, our brand, and our employees.
How we’re making a difference
Employee Giving leverages the power of employee charitable donations, volunteerism, and mentorship to help social sector partners reach those in need.
GitHub employees love to volunteer virtually and in their local communities. Every hour that employees volunteer, they will receive a $20 credit to donate to a nonprofit of their choice, up to $15,000.
When an employee donates to a nonprofit that they care about, be it human rights or climate change organizations, we match each donation dollar for dollar, up to $15,000.
GitHub employees participate each December in our giving campaign to raise funds for our local communities. In December 2021, as a company, we raised over $1.98 million for nonprofits around the world.
