Box tweeted a statement in the form of a graphic on May 30, 2020, saying they stood in solidarity with the Black community and were moved to act by donating to racial equity nonprofit organizations. The statement didn’t specify a dollar amount, nor specific organizations.

Box has a blog series called ‘Make Mom Proud,’ which features members of the Box community who are trying to make the world a better place. This includes organizations like Equal Opportunity Schools, which supports low-income students and students of color.

Box also has something called Employee Resource Communities (ERCs), internal affinity groups for Box employees who share an identity. Box has a blog post about their Latinx ERC here. Other ERCs include Asian Pacific Islanders, Black Excellence Network, and Pride., Box’s social impact initiative, works with nonprofits. Sometimes they offer reduced rates on software or donate software and services to them. The website says donates $5 million a year in “total good” (philanthropy, employee donations and volunteering, and product donations) but it’s hard to find numbers for amounts they donated to specific organizations.
