WeSpire adds Employee Giving, Matching, Grants Management

November 5, 2019 – WeSpire announced today an expansion of their award-winning employee experience SaaS platform: a donor advised fund capability. This expansion will enable employee giving to vetted charities and for employers to match gifts and manage grant requests directly through the WeSpire platform. The WeSpire platform now offers capabilities to support the broadest range of pro-social and Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) engagement initiatives in the industry.

WeSpire helps forward-thinking companies design, communicate and measure behavior change initiatives in sustainability, holistic wellbeing, culture, diversity & inclusion, and social impact. 

“Our customers have been using us for years to inspire employees to give. However, a hand-off to other platforms adds friction to the experience. This more integrated approach benefits employees and program administrators immensely and most importantly, drives even better participation rates and donation volumes,” said Susan Hunt Stevens, Founder & CEO of WeSpire.

WeSpire’s new giving functionality is prominently featured in Novo Nordisk’s Take Action USA employee engagement program. “Since launching our program through the WeSpire platform, we’ve seen a significant increase in employee donations. We’re thrilled to provide our employees with a more modern, integrated, mobile-enabled way to make a significant impact in society and support our goal of creating long term shared value,” said Erin Byrne, Senior Director, Corporate Sustainability & Social Impact at Novo Nordisk.   

Through their partnership with Givinga, a philanthropy-as-a-service firm, WeSpire delivers custom corporate philanthropy capabilities designed to maximize tax savings and giving impact. Givinga handles all the complex back end financial transactions via a secure, seamless integration with WeSpire’s friendly, activation-centric interface. “We are thrilled to be partnering with the industry leader powering purpose-driven employee engagement initiatives. Our platform integrates financial technology and the full tax and investment benefits of Donor Advised Funds into WeSpire’s behavior-based corporate workplace charitable giving and grant-making experience, providing companies and their employees with a powerful way to maximize their collective philanthropic investments and overall impact. We believe it’s a game changing platform in this rapidly growing sector.” 

In addition to driving up program outcomes, WeSpire’s analytics engine helps companies understand the impact that participation in purpose-driven initiatives has on people outcomes like satisfaction rates, retention rates, and talent performance. WeSpire’s Insights team has published extensive research on the growing connection between ESG engagement initiatives and improved business outcomes.
