Optimism and hope are two of the most powerful qualities humans possess.
Through these qualities, we find the courage to seek positive change in our world. Big or small, how we choose to make a difference adds up.
The same goes for us at G2. We know that it’s our responsibility to do more for impacted communities and empower those in a position to influence real change.
That’s why we created G2 Gives, and we can’t wait to share the great results we had in the last year.
How G2 Gives connects vendors with charitable organizations
As any software vendor on G2 will tell you, getting tons of reviews is tough. Incentivizing people to leave a review, whether positive or constructive, is a consistent strategy to generate more reviews to overcome these challenges.
While some folks are perfectly content with gift cards to their favorite retailers, what if we could incentivize others in a different way? What if, instead of a gift card, people had the choice to donate to causes that resonate with them?
Fast forward to today and several iterations later, G2 Gives now offers incentive options to include a $10 donation to one of our pillar partners for qualifying reviews. Here’s a snapshot of what we’ve accomplished in the last few years.

In some cases, reviewers may opt to donate to their charity or non-profit of choice. However, we try to encourage donations for a smaller collection of organizations since more funding in their hands can go a lot further than small donations to a larger pool.
Beginning in May 2021, G2 Gives began our partnership with 11 different organizations across North America, Europe, and Asia. Each of these pillar partners was carefully selected based on their reputation, the communities they represent, and the themes G2 proudly supports.
“G2 not only helps companies reach their potential, but they are just as committed to making an impact by helping the American Cancer Society provide critical programs to the many who need our patient support services.”

Making an impact in Latin America with New Story
Safe shelter is necessary for happiness and prosperity for all people. Throughout the world, shelter is harder to come by, and homelessness continues to skyrocket year after year.
That’s why G2 Gives is proud to partner with New Story, an organization whose mission is to successfully provide for families in need in Latin America. By securing access to safe housing, people have access to much more than somewhere to sleep.
“G2 has enabled a generational impact for families in need of safe housing in Latin America. Families will now see an increase in health and wellness, safety and security, opportunities in education, and income generation from the remarkable impact made.”
