Each year, DocuSign brings together employees from around the globe to kick off the fiscal year at our Global Kick-Off (GKO). This year, the event will take place from March 5-7 in San Francisco.

As part of the event, we showcase DocuSign IMPACT and feature a nonprofit we support throughout the week’s activities. DocuSign IMPACT is our global initiative designed to transform lives by transforming nonprofit organizations around the world.  This year as part of GKO, we are pleased to announce our support for Family House, a home away from home for families of children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. Family House provides accommodations, physical comfort, and emotional support for their residents — all free from financial concerns.

Our IMPACT:  Volunteering, Double Matching, & Toy Drive

Our 1,000+ GKO attendees will have various ways to support Family House’s important work through the week.  

To start the week of Global Kick Off, employees arriving from our many international locations can opt to volunteer with Family House at their Mission Bay location and see its IMPACT on families from around the world first hand.

Global Kick-Off attendees are encouraged to attend a breakout session focused on DocuSign IMPACT, where they will hear directly from the Family House staff, be inspired by DocuSign employees who serve as IMPACT Leaders around the world, and create St Patrick’s Day-themed welcome baskets for the children and families staying at Family House.

We are also hosting a toy drive to collect toys for the children staying at Family House. Global Kick-Off attendees can bring a toy to drop off during the week.

Next, the DocuSign IMPACT Foundation will double-match employee donations to Family House through our matching gifts program.

And finally, Family House’s CEO Alexandra Morgan will join DocuSign CEO Dan Springer, President Neil Hudspith, and Executive Director of DocuSign IMPACT Amy Skeeters-Behrens in a plenary session to share Family House’s important work and how DocuSign helps them spend more time helping people in their time of need and less time on administration.

DocuSign IMPACT Year-Round

And while GKO provides the perfect jumping-off point for a year of making impact in our communities, DocuSign IMPACT works year-round to empower nonprofits in their missions.  From Global IMPACT Day to employee volunteer time off to our Matching Gifts Program, there are continual opportunities for employees to give back in a way that makes a true IMPACT.
