OSF FOUNDATION

Transforming the communities where we operate

The OSF Foundation contributes to various charitable, cultural, and educational causes in the communities where we operate. Through this philanthropic organization within OSF, we strive to work and live responsibly, leaving a positive impact on those around us.

OSF Foundation Focus Areas

Quality Education

We believe it’s easier for young people to thrive when given the right tools and opportunities. As part of the OSF Foundation, we created a scholarship program to help children from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds receive a high-quality education. We identify stellar students and offer them scholarships to give them a chance at a better future and to reach their full potential.

Sustainable Cities and Communities

OSF strongly believes that as a leader in the IT services industry, we can—and must—use our inventiveness to improve the communities where we operate. For years, we’ve engaged in corporate social responsibility by giving back to our communities, focusing on children and families in need, education, and the environment. We sponsor children to attend summer camps, fund childcare center projects, support families during the holidays, and donate school supplies and basic necessities to children.

Key Initiatives

Youth Camps
Every year, in cooperation with several non-profit associations, OSF provides sponsorships for children to attend summer camp.
Donations
We regularly donate school supplies, books, and clothing to children and families with limited financial resources. We also sponsor child care centers, helping implement various projects, such as the construction of playgrounds.
Courses & Workshops
We organize numerous educational workshops and courses for children, with significant attention on topics related to the environment and ecology. We've created OSF Academy, a unique, training program for people who are seeking entry into the web programming field.
Pledge 1%

A Member of Pledge 1%

OSF Digital is a proud member of Pledge 1%, a worldwide program that encourages companies to pledge 1% of their equity, profit, products and/or employee time to their communities. Already, we’ve been giving back to communities around the globe where we operate. As a Pledge 1% member, we’re affirming our commitment to continue our support of charitable causes worldwide, focusing on children and families in need, education, and the environment.

Pledge 1% was founded by Salesforce, Atlassian, Rally and Tides in 2014. OSF Digital joins 9,000+ members in 100 countries that have taken the pledge.

Climate Action

While limiting our own carbon footprint, we also help our customers establish sustainable digital strategies in their organizations. As part of our goal to be environmentally responsible, we made it our mission to preserve and restore forests on a global scale. In 2019, we started a collaboration with Reforest’Action, an NGO with a unique crowd-planting model. Inspired by this initiative, we replicated our global digital footprint into a global OSF Forest. Check out the results we’ve achieved through this program.

Environment

As a company with respect for the environment, we minimize our use of electricity, paper, and water. Most of our processes are performed electronically, and we use recycled paper for those minor exceptions when paper is required. Our employees help reduce plastic consumption by using re-usable cups received in the OSF welcome kit. We’ve also eliminated single-use plastic cups from our water coolers.

Gender Equality

OSF endorses employee initiatives that advance gender equality. In 2020, the women of OSF created the OSF Women’s Network to bring together female employees and achieve shared goals: raising the number of women employed at OSF to 50%, helping first-time moms cope during maternity leave, helping them integrate faster when they return to work, and sharing information and support to help women grow professionally and personally.
