Y Combinator

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 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.
