Good impact program
Supporting free time contributions for social good
An open source and social impact program sponsored by Columbia Road.
Why: Happy people
We enable Columbia Road's people to do good by contributing to initiatives that are close to their hearts and minds.
Where: We build a better world
We use our skills to make the world better by contributing to projects with positive social impact.
How: We help our people to blossom
We encourage our people to leverage their personal growth by learning new skills and delving into the unknown.
More supporters, more funds
Let's bring fundraising into the 2020s. How can digital marketing and marketing technology help NGOs collect funds more efficiently and cost-effectively, and thus free up manpower for creating more impact on things that really matter.
Protecting the climate is extremely important, and we're dying to do something about it. We're open to all kinds of creative solutions regarding how to put our expertise to use to give back to mother nature. Any ideas?
Good Impact Program is a way for me to create what I believe should exist and help those who are making things that matter — and being rewarded for that.

Use professional skills
We pay 15€/hour on top of regular salary for employees’ free time contributions that use their professional skills.
Keep the balance
We have a 30 hours per person monthly limit on how much is supported. It's meant to protect employees from overloading themselves with work.
Aim for social good
Any project goes, as long as the outcome aims for social good. The work can be strategy, digital marketing, design, web development or something else. When possible, the impact should be shared with an open source license.
This is not work
Columbia Road makes no IPR claims whatsoever regarding these contributions. In fact, we insist on employees taking their due credit for their efforts.
