BoxWorks19 Social Impact recap

Box welcomed over 4000 members of our community to BoxWorks19 at the beginning of October. It was an inspiring, energizing and educational event for everyone involved!  Box and Box.org leadership are also excited to report that the event drove significant digital and general capacity gains for nonprofits which will enable lots of positive social impact.

It was special catching up with so many friends and colleagues during two informative and fun-filled days at Moscone Center in San Francisco. We at Box.org were especially excited to fully scholarship and greet over 450 nonprofit / social impact leaders who learned from over 30 of their peer experts in the Social Impact Clubhouse this year.

HEREare the presentations, speakers and recordings of our eight social impact sessions. If you want to check out photos from the Clubhouse, the keynotes and other inspiring elements of BoxWorks19, we've set up a photo folder HERE.

We were also excited to enable hundreds of BoxWorks attendees and employees to make over 450 donations totaling almost $95K to NetHope during the two-day event.  Partners or the CEO’s at Okta, PagerDuty, Zoom and Slack donated $40K, Box.org donated 35K and Boxers/BoxWorks attendees donated the remaining 20K!  The funds will help the NetHope Center for the Digital Nonprofit complete an IDEA design thinking session with their member Path and bolster their capacity to educate consulting companies who want to optimize how they work with NGO’s.
