Integrated giving to drive systemic change
$1,167,716 in financial grants donated to 418 organizations through strategic giving and employee match donations.
donated to local communities as part of our rapid response work, to address emergency needs related to COVID, racial injustice, and natural disasters
to three organizations as part of our Time-Critical Health grantmaking portfolio
to 15 organizations as part of our new Just & Equitable Communities portfolio
To honor the expertise of our grantees and promote innovation, we provide our grants as unrestricted funding. We augment funding with product donations and access to specialized pro bono employee expertise—from platform implementation to user experience—to meet multiple areas of need for our grantees. We also use PagerDuty’s public platform to increase visibility for our grantees’ work with new audiences.
First, we launched a round of rapid response grants in our global hubs for COVID-19 relief and racial justice—helping local organizations from North America, to Australia, to the UK provide critical support.
We then made investments in two long-term grantmaking initiatives: Time-Critical Health and Just and Equitable Communities.
Our Time-Critical Health portfolio builds off earlier grants to ensure access to medical care for hard-to-reach communities. It supports organizations working to save lives by reaching people faster, with a focus on technology-forward solutions that provide access to care for under-resourced populations. This ranges from supporting emergency dispatch communications for low-income or minority neighborhoods, to developing sensor monitoring to remediate power outages in rural clinics.
Our Just and Equitable Communities initiative works to combat systemic discrimination. It adopts an ecosystem approach to address obstacles to voter access and engagement by providing funding, platform donation, and amplification to five organizations tackling barriers to free and fair elections.
Except where noted, all figures are reported for the 2020 calendar year.
Data around employee volunteering and giving were pulled from PagerDuty’s internal database in Benevity.
The number of nonprofit customers reported here includes only organizations receiving product discounts and credits through our Impact Pricing program. For Impact Pricing eligibility criteria, see: https://www.pagerduty.com/foundation-eligibility/
Product donations and discounts were calculated by adding the ARR (annual recurring revenue) dollar value of product discounts provided to all organizations participating in Impact Pricing.
