Giving back to our communities while living in a virtual world
When COVID-19 changed the way we live and work, being connected virtually became more important than ever before. Among the many changes and adaptations the world was going through, we understood our GiveBack program needed to evolve, too. The needs of local and global communities have risen and our desire to be a collective, impactful force in these communities remains strong, and shows no signs of slowing.
Allscripts CEO Paul Black once said, “Humans helping humans—that’s what it’s all about.” And that philosophy applies to more than just our solutions. Last month the Allscripts GiveBack program launched its partnership with Benevity, a leading corporate purpose software provider for nearly 700 enterprises that helps engage passionate employees, clients and communities in social impact initiatives, including driving next-level volunteerism and a seamless giving experience. Allscripts remains passionate about helping the communities we live and work in thrive—especially during uncertain times. Through Benevity’s cause network, Allscripts will be empowering its associates to be in charge of choosing and supporting the causes most important to them. We want team members to believe in their chosen causes, research them, volunteer for them and support their missions. Now, our associates have the technology at their fingertips to help the causes and charities they care about the most.
Through our new partnership with Benevity, we can do much more than we ever could from our offices. As part of a massive global movement and community, we can come together to support causes locally, nationally and internationally, To date, Benevity has processed more than $7 billion in donations and 38 million hours of volunteering time, facilitated 340,000 positive actions and awarded more than one million grants to 303,000 nonprofits worldwide.
With Benevity’s global engagement solution, Spark, we are providing a fun way for our team members to give time or money to the causes and charities they care about.
With Spark, you can:
- Find millions (yes, millions!) of ways to volunteer, including tons of virtual and skills-based options.
- Choose from nearly two million vetted non-profits you can support locally or across the globe.
- Easily create your own fundraisers and share them with your colleagues, friends, family and social networks.
- Organize team, regional and global events and connect with your communities and each other.
- Have your donation multiplied automatically with corporate matching and peer matching.

Our associates have already made our GiveBack program successful with their hard work and determination to make a positive difference in the world. With Benevity, we’ll be able to harness that energy and elevate our program to new heights. I look forward to sharing what our teams accomplish in the months ahead.
