Food Lifeline is proud to recognize PitchBook as our May Corporate Donor of the Month. This month, PitchBook employees will be joining us for their annual Global Volunteer Days, when they spend a day in organized volunteer activities with their co-workers. PitchBook’s goal is for more than half of its global workforce (3k+) to participate in at least one volunteer event throughout the week.
“When we started talking about what kinds of volunteer opportunities we should offer to employees as part of our global initiative, Sort and Repack at Food Lifeline immediately came to mind,” says Kai Yau, PitchBook Associate Director, Multimedia. “I’d had the chance to volunteer a few times while at a previous company and really love the combination of building camaraderie with teammates and of course making an impact to the community. Especially, after seeing the cost of groceries skyrocket, Food Lifeline’s work has never been more important.”
Incorporating Food Lifeline into their Global Volunteer Days was a no-brainer. In 2022, PitchBook employees were in the warehouse 17 different times, donating 454 hours, making them one of our most dedicated corporate volunteer teams. “The volunteer coordinators at Food Lifeline do such an amazing job, and the experience continues to be eye-opening for me and our team about how much food would be going to waste without the amazing work of Food Lifeline and its volunteers,” shares Kai Yau.
In addition to donating time, PitchBook employees also support Food Lifeline throughout the year through different employee fundraising efforts, including competing in the Technology Sector of Food Frenzy and their end of year employee giving campaign, raising more than $40,000 with corporate and foundation matching in 2022.
Food Lifeline isn’t the only organization to benefit from PitchBook’s generosity. With offices around the globe, PitchBook’s employee-led community engagement initiative, PBCares, aims to provide opportunities for employees to serve the communities where they live and work. In 2022, 792 volunteers donated 4,050 hours to 44 organizations and donated nearly $850,000 to 359 deserving organizations last year.
“At PitchBook, we strive to treat our customers like royalty and believe our communities deserve the same. That is why we volunteer our time, expertise and financial resources to help build a more promising future for the communities where we live and work,” said Amy Whaley, VP of People at PitchBook. “Our partnership with Food Lifeline is a great example of our commitment to serving the greater Seattle area. We’re proud to support Food Lifeline’s mission and donate our time and resources to end hunger and address its root causes.”
Thank you PitchBook for your ongoing support as we work together to end hunger in our communities.
