One of my favorite perks at salesforce is that we get 56 hours a year of volunteer time off (and really good donation matching). What other companies have something similar?

We get 5 days Time2Give, during covid it was increased to 10 days to volunteer. There’s also a donation match for eligible charities, but don’t know the limit.

That's really good too, I like these kind of perks - I don't really have that at my current job but something to suggest

Black Baud, which sells primarily into the non-profit space, employees can an hour of additional PTO for every two hours of volunteer time. They also have a donation matching program and a grant program where employees can nominate charitable organizations for company donations.

That's a pretty cool concept. Because people can't take advantage of the PTO unless they're willing to commit to the volunteer hours.

We match up to 10,000 in donations and I think we give 2 days of volunteer time

Nice! I think you match double what we do ($5,000). Though I think we increased it during COVID.

In my former life I worked with REI (the outdoor rec company) and they give good volunteer time off also. I wish more tech companies did this.

Years ago, when I worked at Bank of America, they offered 5 paid days of volunteer time. I wish I'd have taken more advantage of it back then.
