The Geopointe team is excited to participate in their first #GivingTuesday campaign this year! Giving back has always been one of the core values at Geopoine, initiated by CEO and founder, Scott Hemmeter. Geopointe started a $1 per lead scan donation program at Dreamforce 2017 and continued it in 2018. The company has also opened its doors to charities by offering a special discount to nonprofit organizations.
Geopointe is honored to partner with the Novato Unified School District (NUSD) located just south of the Geopointe sales office in Petaluma, California. Every December NUSD hosts an Annual Giving Tree Celebration to both foster community in the school and create a fun holiday celebration for their students and families.

The Geopointe team learned of the event and their need for one of its main donation items, bicycles to be raffled off. Geopointe was excited for the opportunity to step in and donate the needed bicycles.
The idea was met with immense support and excitement from the Geopointe team, who were ready to step in and give when needed. Each employee was invited to made a donation, with a goal of purchasing four bicycles for the December 15th fundraising event. The team ended up donating enough to purchase a total of seven bikes plus helmets to go along with the bikes (safety first!).
When asked about the #GivingTuesday campaign, Mark Baird, VP of Sales, said, “Our employees are not only some of the hardest working people you’ll ever meet, but they are always ready to help others when there is a need. While this is our first GivingTuesday campaign, we definitely plan to make it an annual opportunity for our team to give back.”
