Collaboration Focused on Employee and Community Engagement Powered by Philanthropy Cloud

Deluxe is collaborating with United Way to drive employee engagement in communities and at work through the integration of Philanthropy Cloud, a new corporate giving platform.

Deluxe – and its more than 6,500 employees – has a long history of giving back to the communities it serves through time, talent and donations. By working with Greater Twin Cities United Way, Deluxe is one of the first Minnesota companies to incorporate Philanthropy Cloud to provide employees with options for their charitable donations.

“At Deluxe, we are very proud to champion businesses so communities thrive. This collaboration with United Way and Salesforce is a natural way to drive employee-community engagement,” said Deluxe President and CEO Barry McCarthy. “We believe in giving back in numerous ways. To drive greater employee engagement, all North American Deluxe employees became shareholders of the company on April 1, further strengthening families in the communities where we live and work.”

“We are grateful to work with Deluxe on our mission of building prosperity and equity for all,” said John Wilgers, CEO and president of Greater Twin Cities United Way. “Deluxe is making it possible for us to meaningfully engage corporate employees in giving and volunteering with Salesforce.” Philanthropy Cloud delivers on what’s important to many employees. Statistics show that 65 percent of young professionals are influenced by a company’s actions on important societal issues*. Further, at companies that actively empower their workforce to make a difference, employees are 82 percent more likely to recommend the company as a place to work, 77 percent are more likely to continue working for the company long term, and 72 percent are more likely to increase their engagement at work each day. Philanthropy Cloud is a platform that enables employees to make donations to nonprofits, host fundraisers, advocate for causes, receive relevant content based on their interests, connect with others, organize volunteering and track the impact of their charitable efforts throughout their lifetime.
