Empowering nonprofits to fulfill their missions
A partnership for creating social change
We care about impact. We want to power positive change with our dollars, volunteer hours, and products. When we find a domain where our partners are powering real positive impact, we seek to "10x it," working together to make that impact even bigger. Three domains where Box.org works towards maximum impact are child welfare, crisis response, and the environment.
Keeping children safe
In child welfare, time is a precious commodity. Time to spend with kids, time to match children with foster families. By powering gains in productivity and efficiency, Box can help give social workers that time. We can help to secure personal information to prevent identity theft. Aligning our volunteering and giving programs with these efforts can mean even deeper community connection and impact.
"Having the information you need at the moment of need is so critical. Because of our multi-faceted partnership with Box, access to a copy of a youth's ID can mean access to shelter, submitting a job application, or enrolling in school for a youth we support."
—Sixto Cancel, Founder and CEO, Think of Us
“As a CEO, I can sleep better at night knowing that Box is securing our organization’s most critical content. Additionally, what used to be a paperwork nightmare is now all done behind the scenes in Box, allowing our staff and social workers to spend 33% more time with families and children in care.”
—Jeff Wiemann, Executive Director, Angels Foster Family Network
"We are so grateful for our partnership with Box, from their volunteering to fundraising to product discounts. Their active engagement and support for foster youth are so impactful to our organization, community and, most importantly, the young people we serve."
—Nkia Richardson, Executive Director, CASA of San Mateo County
Providing lifesaving support
During crisis response, every moment matters. With an easy way to work on content from any device, aid workers are better-equipped to lead lifesaving missions with dispersed teams. Securing access and protecting that critical content means that identities are protected when it matters most.
"In the toughest situations, our staff need tech solutions that enable and empower them to do their life-changing and lifesaving work. Our Box partnership has given our staff agility while making sure we can keep information highly secure so we respect the data and other rights of the people we help."
—Dianna Langley, (Former) Head of Digital Workplace, Oxfam International
"It's important that we protect the sensitive information of our global communities in vulnerable situations. Box gives us the security and control we need to stay vigilant."
—Bin Su, IT Manager, Relief International
"Box is an absolutely instrumental tool at the IRC in mobilizing our staff into a remote workforce during the current COVID-19 pandemic ... Box is our content management solution. Period. It's our essential platform."
—Madeleine Fackler, CIO, International Rescue Committee
Protecting our planet
Our customers are fighting climate change, championing biodiversity, and protecting our oceans. Box powers environmental impact by enabling secure collaboration with academic, government, and non-government partners as they work to translate scientific discovery into effective strategy. This important work generates a lot of data — and the Content Cloud makes it easy to manage and access that valuable information. Not to mention the trees saved by digitizing all those paper-based processes.
In no small part, charity: water has been able to pursue our mission because of the support of strategic partners like Box. The ability to leverage cutting edge technologies has been a key to our success. We continue to benefit from the support of Box as we work to end the world water crisis.
—Sean Lee, Director of IT, charity: water

Responding to humanitarian crises with agility
The International Rescue Committee helps people whose lives and livelihoods have been shattered by conflict and disaster. All global teams at IRC use Box to better execute the valuable work they do. Knowledge flow is optimized with help from pro-bono Box Consulting. And so far, the IRC has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars with the Box community.
Igniting the potential of under-served youth
BUILD uses the power of entrepreneurship and Cloud Content Management to help youth in under-resourced communities reach their full potential. Box volunteers and mentors, along with others from within the Box community, help expand the support base. BUILD has received unrestricted grant-funding from the Box.org Fund and Box executive contributions.
Changing the world with the power of technology
NetHope joins the world's largest nonprofits with technology innovators worldwide. They use Box to manage all staff and partner content. Box is also a founding funder of the Center for the Digital Nonprofit and has sponsored the NetHope Global Summit for the past five years. Thanks to the Box community, NetHope has experienced an expanded tech partner and supporter base.
Using technology for a more equitable planet
TechSoup has driven earned income by facilitating Box.org's donation program eligibility vetting since 2015. Box and TechSoup team up on educational endeavors for members and pursue extensive joint storytelling and mission-aligned projects. So far, TechSoup has raised $500K from Box and other supporters to fund the ICT4NGO nonprofit digital-assessment platform.
Strengthening the movement for educational equity
Teach For America finds outstanding leaders in the community and trains them to be teachers in low-income schools — and Box and Teach For America have teamed up to drive brand awareness. The organization has received unrestricted grant-funding from the Box.org Fund, and Box leaders have spoken at internal Teach For America IT summits and in presentations at key events like Gartner Summit.
