Celebrating Giving Tuesday with Smartsheet’s ERGs


Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement and this year Smartsheet wanted to
give back to the causes that mean so much to our employees.

We asked our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) to nominate and vote for non-profit organizations that directly support the communities they represent. Now, we’re excited to announce the organizations that were selected to receive a monetary donation from Smartsheet.

Asian Counseling & Referral Service

Asian Counseling and Referral Service (ACRS) is a nationally recognized, social justice focused nonprofit and is the largest multi-service agency offering a broad array of health and human services to Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders and other underserved communities — whether immigrant, refugee or American born — in the Pacific Northwest.

This ERG is for military veterans from active duty and the reserves of any nation that works at Smartsheet.

The API at Smartsheet ERG leaders were extremely excited to hear that Smartsheet was holding a Giving Tuesday initiative to support a nonprofit in our community! Our members have enthusiastically selected Asian Counseling & Referral Service (ACRS) as our nonprofit. Their focus on well-being and empowerment of our community was an inspiring and motivating mission we wanted to show our support for and we are ecstatic to be able to give a donation on behalf of Smartsheet and look forward to partnering with them.
