In October, we announced our renewed commitment to the community through the Employee Corporate Citizenship programs, SuiteImpact Teams and SuiteVolunteers! We have been thrilled with the roll-out of these initiatives and the terrific feedback we’ve received from NetSuite employees around the world.

This holiday season, our SuiteImpact Teams held their first events, partnering with community organizations around the world, from Manila to Brno. Our employee ambassadors are eagerly planning their next SuiteImpact Team community service activity. We’ll keep you posted on their outcomes, and share stories as the year goes on.

In late December, we announced the 2013 menu of SuiteVolunteer pro bono projects that our grantees (charities and social enterprises that use NetSuite as part of our donation program) were invited to apply for.

It was really exciting to see that these services resonated with both our grantees and our employees! Over the past weeks, we’ve sorted through all of the fantastic applications we
received and have selected a group of 22 organizations who will make up our inaugural class of SuiteVolunteer grantees! We’ve matched them with 46 outstanding employee volunteers from our offices around the world.

Today, we’re thrilled to announce these grantees that have been accepted to our Q1 SuiteVolunteers program. Next week, they will meet their employee volunteer teams, and together they will spend February and March completing their pro bono project.
