Leverage the power of your spend to achieve sustainability goals

Givewith offers an alternative to cutting costs that helps you build and maintain strong relationships with your suppliers, and drives business value for both parties. By asking suppliers to invest a small percentage of your deal to social impact, you’ll both share in the business value derived from supporting your responsibility and sustainability goals. And it’s easy to create this value in every supplier engagement through our RFP templates.

Track and report the positive impact of every supplier engagement

The Givewith platform provides robust data and analytics so you can clearly see the impact that each deal has made—on both the community and your business. In-depth reports detail the outcomes of the social impact program and business value delivered, making the story easy to share with key stakeholders for both you and your supplier. Reporting includes:

  • Reports tailored for top ESG and sustainability ratings agencies

  • Precise impact metrics (for example, the number of beneficiaries helped or trees planted)

Bring new value to other departments and increase spend under management

When Givewith is included in a deal, not only are you achieving your sourcing needs, but you’re also unlocking new and exciting value for your colleagues in corporate social responsibility, marketing, human resources, investor relations, and more. With creative content and reporting materials that, when shared, can increase customer sentiment and employee engagement, bolster sustainability reports, and even increase ESG scores—colleagues will have even more reason to bring their purchasing needs to your department.

Seamlessly integrate Givewith into your existing process

Make social impact even easier by integrating it into your existing cloud-based tools with the Givewith API. By automating notifications, approvals, reporting, and more, through your existing channels and apps, you can make social impact simple for everyone involved. Support includes:

  • Dedicated Client Success Team

  • Custom proposal links for your suppliers

  • API integration
