Okta’s for Good’s mission is to strengthen the connections between people, technology, and the community. We do this by mobilizing our people, our product, and our financial resources in service to our global communities.
Making a difference in your community
We encourage you to donate your time and expertise to critical causes in your local community through these programs:
New hire volunteering and giving program
This program gives new employees the ability to get involved in their communities right when they join Okta.
You receive a $10 giving credit to contribute to the cause you care about most.
Also, all new hires at our San Francisco HQ volunteer in the local community on their second day of work.
Global Tech Week
Every year through Global Tech Week, our global teams—from San Jose to Sydney—host career workshops and mentoring sessions to expose students and jobseekers from our local communities to careers in tech.
Making a difference with technology
Okta believes that mission-driven organizations can change our communities and our world. We help them do so in several ways:
Product licenses for nonprofits
Okta provides 25 free licenses and preferential pricing to qualified nonprofit organizations, making Okta’s technology more accessible to any organization whose mission is to help others. With Okta for Good, global nonprofits like Oxfam, PATH, Plan International, and Norwegian Refugee Council can focus on their important missions around the world.
Apps for Good
Through Okta’s Apps for Good program, our global customers can simply and securely deploy world-class “giving apps” to their workforces. These prebuilt, easily configured integrations, with top giving apps like Kiva, Benevity, and VolunteerMatch, make it easier than ever for companies and employees to donate time, money, expertise, and more.
Through ImpactCloud, Okta has joined forces with global humanitarian organizations and leading technology companies like Salesforce, Box, Splunk, Twilio and more to support cross-cloud innovation in global crisis response.
Okta for Good Fund
The Okta for Good Fund enables Okta’s strategic charitable giving. The fund supports three major program areas: technology innovation in the social sector, employee giving, and support for local organizations in Okta’s global communities.
Following are our signature partnerships:
NetHope is a global consortium of the world’s leading nonprofits focused on technology enablement and solutions.
Okta joined on as a founding partner of NetHope’s Center for the Digital Nonprofit, an effort to enable digital transformation for NGOs.
The Fast Forward organization funds and supports nonprofit entrepreneurs building original tech for social impact.
Okta’s support aids Fast Forward’s efforts to support tech nonprofits in their direct programs and entrepreneurs across the broader tech nonprofit ecosystem.
TechSoup is a global network enabling more than 1 million nonprofit organizations to gain access to technology tools and resources.
Okta for Good co-invested in TechSoup’s digital transformation initiative along with VMWare, Adobe, Cisco, and Box.
The grant is funding the creation of an IT assessment tool that will give nonprofit organizations an assessment of where they are and what steps or resources they can use to improve.
This is all in support of TechSoup’s longer-term goal of moving 1 million nonprofits to the cloud.
Tipping Point Community
This is a nonprofit that finds and funds the most effective programs and policies fighting poverty in the Bay Area.
In February 2019, Okta committed $500,000 to Tipping Point to address poverty and homelessness in the Bay Area.
