Partner Spotlight

HP

Kiva and Hewlett-Packard launched Matter to a Million, a 5-year global employee engagement partnership. They set up a $7 million fund to provide each of Hewlett-Packard’s 275,000+ global employees with a $25 credit to lend to a Kiva borrower. The goal was to have 10% of employees participate in the first campaign. By the end of their second campaign, nearly 50% of employees from over 100 countries had redeemed their $25 Kiva credit.

BlackRock

BlackRock believes their employees are their most valuable resource in creating lasting and meaningful social change. By partnering with Kiva, over 80% of BlackRock’s employees across 30 countries worldwide have made loans to help people in need establish a more secure financial footing. This remarkable employee participation was achieved through strong local champions, engaged office leadership and a permeating purpose-driven culture that motivates and inspires their 14,000 employees.

eBay

Kiva and eBay share a belief that the internet can be an empowering force that helps create opportunities for people across the globe. The partnership is a perfect match as it not only advances eBay Foundation’s mission to unleash the power of entrepreneurship to build economically vibrant and sustainable communities, but it also creates a direct people-to-people connection where real impact can be seen and felt by eBay’s employees.
