We're all about building purposeful connections

Our Story

We started as a small project at the beginning of the pandemic to support nonprofits who’ve closed their front doors transition to virtual connecting them to friends and volunteers who were either recently laid off or looking to give back during a time of uncertainty. With an excel sheet and a contact list, we supported matching hundreds of volunteers to nonprofits who were looking for an extra hand.

MeaningfulWork sprouted in Vancouver, Canada as we discovered the barriers of giving back and quickly realizing how outdated existing platforms were. As the pandemic brought light to inequality and climate change, we’ve supported movements across North America such as Black Lives Matter, Stop Asian Hate, the Climate Protest and more.

Today, MeaningfulWork is a platform for you to find new opportunities to give back, while for nonprofits, it’s a great way to quickly connect with new volunteers and givers. We’re often mistaken as a nonprofit, but we’re actually a startup! A core of our business is supporting companies building effective employee volunteer programs through our features such as employee management, impact metrics, and team volunteering.

Why

Giving is important. It’s core to what makes us human and it’s an act towards what gives us purpose. By supporting you and companies better give, we build a stronger engaging culture that enables people to give to cause areas that matter most helping the most impactful nonprofits that trickles down to each cause area and ultimately back to us, as we build a stronger society and environment.

By working with companies, we believe employee volunteerism is the great first step towards thinking and acting towards sustainability. Sustainability does not function as a department, but rather it is an organizational effort that includes everyone in building effective initiatives that support our communities. Getting the entire organization to move towards a direction is difficult, so MeaningfulWork plays a vital role in asking, “What matters to us?”, then enables the action towards supporting what you care most deeply about.
