Join Us in Giving to Our Favorite Charities

‘Tis the season of giving and in celebration of another blessed and successful year, Wufoo is joining the festivities by donating **$1,000** on behalf of each employee to a charity of their choice. Below are the charities near and dear to our hearts, and if you happen to also find yourself in the giving mood, we encourage you to donate along with us to one of these fine organizations or to any number of other [great charities](http://www.charitynavigator.org/).

Habitat for Humanity ##From Ryan Campbell to Habitat for Humanity

[Habitat for Humanity](https://www.habitat.org/cd/giving/one/donate.aspx?link=339&st=MTIvMTMvMjAxMCAxMjowOToyMiBQTQ%3d%3d&x=1&r=r) helps families to break the cycle of poverty and build long-term financial security. Habitat’s affordable, no-profit house payments free up money for food, child care, medicine and other necessities. And research has shown that decent housing improves health, increases children’s educational achievement and strengthens community ties.
Florida Boxer Rescue ##From Alex Vazquez to Florida Boxer Rescue

[Florida Boxer Rescue](http://www.flbr.org/donate.html) aids unwanted and abandoned purebred Boxers and place them in safe, responsible, loving, forever homes. Boxers entering FBR are often sick or injured, some are suffering from neglect or abuse. Some come from loving families that can no longer care for them. FBR volunteers care for each and every one of these boxers. Upon entering FBR, each boxer is vetted and brought current on shots, and heartworm and flea prevention. When necessary, they are treated for heartworms, parasites, and other illnesses and injuries.

Art Relief International offers these people a unique artistic voice and the tools they need to heal — all in a space in which there are neither taboos nor boundaries.

  • This Rocks! Google makes a big deal out of donating $20 million, woo hoo. WUFOO (that isn’t Google….yet!) donates their OWN money! Rock On!

    Posted December 15th, 2010 by Christopher Conlan.
  • Thanks Wufoo, this is great! I esp. like the animal charities. Adopt don’t buy.

  • Wow, this is great. Thank you for sharing this.

    Posted December 15th, 2010 by V.
  • So guys, I’ve been looking at your Woofu payments solution. Why don’t you join the Footprints Network and enable your commerce partners to contribute a micro-donation at the point of purchase? We already have an API that does this and have raised more than $1 million doing so. 100% of the proceeds reach the projects they are intended for (eg we have zero administration charge).

    Hope I can interest you. Get in Touch
