The Geopointe team is excited to participate in their second #GivingTuesday campaign this year! Once again partnering with Novato Unified School District and Pledge 1% to give back to those in our community.
Giving back has always been one of the core values at Geopointe, initiated by CEO and founder, Scott Hemmeter. Geopointe started a $1 per lead scan donation program at Dreamforce 2017 which continued at the 2018 and 2019 events. The company has also opened its doors to charities by offering a special discount to nonprofit organizations.
Geopointe was grateful for the opportunity to partner with the Novato Unified School District (NUSD), located just south of the Geopointe sales office in Petaluma, California, again this year. Getting the chance to donate much needed items to their Annual Giving Tree Celebration. Every December NUSD hosts this Annual Giving Tree Celebration to both foster community in the school and create a fun holiday celebration for their students and families.

After the overwhelming participation from the Geopointe team in 2018, the idea to participate again in 2019 was met with immense support and excitement. The team was ready to step in and give when needed. Each employee was invited to make a donation, with a goal of purchasing four bicycles for the December fundraising event. The team ended up donating enough to purchase four bikes, four helmets and four bike locks to be donated and raffled off at the event.
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. We are excited we were able to make it an annual opportunity for our team to give back.”
