B1G1 was originally founded in 2007 when a group of small business owners got together with the realisation that if giving was made easy, more businesses would want to give back. Right now, over 70% of giving comes from individuals – imagine the impact we could make on our world if businesses gave as a whole!
B1G1 is designed so that any business and its employees can choose how to donate and what causes to donate to. For example, in the Kin team, when we place a candidate in a role, we give 100 days of access to life-saving clean water to families in need around the world.
There are so many deserving causes on the B1G1 platform. Our team have chosen which causes have meaning to them and we give regularly based on business milestones achieved each month.
We want to share the B1G1 story, including how easy it is to give because we would love more businesses to join us and make an impact. We’ll happily share our story of how this programme works at Kin, the positive impact it has on our culture and how easy it is to set up B1G1 in your organisation - just ask.
We’re proud to say that we are making a difference to those who need it most, in New Zealand and around the world! We are committed to building a business that matters.
Here are a selection of causes that mean something to us:
We’re thrilled and excited to share our new referral initiative launched just recently. For every new client referral, we’ll donate $200 to a very worthy cause, the Big Buddy Mentoring Trust.
Kin has supported CEO Paul Burns and his team with recruitment for the last couple of years. We love what they do. Big Buddy matches male mentors to boys aged between 7 and 14 who don’t have a Dad in their lives. The difference this makes to the confidence and resilience of these young people is immeasurable.
