In 2020, in response to the COVID pandemic and our team’s commitment to giving back, we introduced Kindly from MatchCraft. As part of one of our virtual engagement activities we challenged team members to participate in giving back to the following organizations, which made virtual giving possible: Letters for the Elderly, Braid Mission, and Classroom Central.
In 2021, we expanded our #MatchCraftGivesBack initiative, Pay it Forward, by extending one paid workday for team members who wanted to volunteer in their local community, either virtually or in person.
Helping Fight Hunger
MatchCraft believes in giving back to our local communities and our team has been committed to helping fight hunger and easing food insecurity since 2014.
We have donated an estimated 30,000 non-perishable items to the Westside Food Bank located in Los Angeles, CA.
Our team has also prepared over 650 lunches in partnership with #HashtagLunchBag.
MatchCrafters located in North Carolina have, in the past, volunteered at the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina for the #NoOneGoesHungry initiative. A total of 6,000 pounds of food got packaged with their help, which fed over 5,000 people in need.
Miami based team members helped prepare lunches at Chapman Partnership’s Lunch Meal Program.
Natural Disaster Relief Across the Globe
As a global company, natural disasters impact our clients and our team members across the world. MatchCraft has been dedicated to helping communities across the globe when natural calamities strike.
MatchCraft has donated to provide relief to several causes across the globe including the Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund and the Australian Fire relief drive.
A member of our team undertook typhoon relief operations in Vietnam after the 2018 disaster hit the country.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusivity
Some of the organizations we have partnered with:
In 2020, MatchCraft became a founding member of the Los Angeles chapter of Chief. Chief is an executive leadership program focused on connecting and supporting women leaders. Chief’s mission is to drive more women into power and keep them there. It is the only organization specifically designed for senior women leaders, to sharpen skills, share knowledge, and strengthen professional connections.
In collaboration with ModelExpand, MatchCraft hosted a Women In Tech Breakfast. The purpose of the event was to shine the spotlight on women in the technology sector who are local to the Los Angeles community. Representing MatchCraft was our very own Product Manager, Gabriela Perez.
Youth Business Alliance
MatchCraft has also worked with Youth Business Alliance to expose underserved youth to careers in tech. Our team has undertaken initiatives such as hosting an onsite field trip, to our Santa Monica HQ, for a local Los Angeles school along with setting up mock interviews and speaking engagements at other participating schools in Los Angeles, CA.
