Our partners value our ability to meet them where they are – whether they're just starting a program or have been active in the space for years – leading to increased engagement and impact.

Our Values

Deed is creating the purpose layer of technology through which all good deeds are done. To that end, our global community of mission-driven professionals coming from a wide range of perspectives and backgrounds uphold a high standard of mutual respect and encouragement. Diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) is not an abstract concept to us. It’s a concrete set of operational priorities, with benefits including comprehensive healthcare plans, professional development, employee resource groups, donation matching, group volunteering, unlimited volunteer time off (VTO), and more. We believe that extending the support and encouragement our employees need to make a difference on the causes that matter most to them is central to our wellbeing and success.


We care deeply about our team, our clients and the communities we serve.


We constantly innovate to make social impact easier and never rest on our laurels.


We make sure everyone's voice is heard, even if you just joined yesterday.

Deed was founded out of a desire to make doing good easy and exciting for a new generation of volunteers. CEO Deevee Kashi came to the realization that our technology-driven world focuses on making selfish pursuits easy, while being selfless remains hard.

After building some of NYC’s top nightlife brands, Deevee began recruiting his network of celebrities and influencers to do good deeds. Finding it very difficult to find local volunteer opportunities, he decided to build an app that made volunteering and donating easy, social, and fun.

By inviting celebrities to soup kitchens instead of parties, he quickly built an enthusiastic community of first-time millennial and Gen Z volunteers looking to make an impact. Some of these same volunteers told their employers about the app so they called to ask for help with their employee volunteer programs. As Deed grew to become the corporate social impact platform for innovative, forward-thinking companies, Deevee was joined by long-time technology wizard, Aske Ertmann, who volunteered through Deed and loved it so much he became CTO, and Steven Liu, a finance and startup veteran searching for purpose.

Supported by incredible partners like Adidas, Airbnb, Stripe, and Box, and by amazing investors like Y-Combinator, Deed’s passionate team of do-gooders now spans 4 continents, and their platform is live in nearly 50 countries. With a growing network of over 2 million nonprofit organizations around the world, Deed continues to maximize the impact of employees and companies by supporting community volunteering, skills-based volunteering, and individual and fund-based donations through cutting edge technology.
