We’d like to introduce you to the company who sells us our office supplies — Give Something Back (GSB) is no ordinary office supply vendor. They donate 50% to 75% of their profits to non-profit groups — that’s 75 times the national corporate giving average. Last year, GSB donated $500,000 to community-based organizations like Habitat for Humanity, the Native American Health Center and the Women’s Initiative for Self Employment.
Here’s another cool thing about GSB: They let their customers and employees vote on which groups receive grants. This approach to philanthropy is not only democratic, but instills in participants a personal commitment to engage with their local community. So if you’re looking for double-value for your office supply budget, take a look at GSB.
We’re proud to do business with GSB and share their goal of supporting the important work of educators and community institutions.
