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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
