Global Giving and Disaster Relief

Global Giving

Global Giving

At CST, we enjoy gathering for summer and winter company events, but in 2021 safety protocols dictated that we forego such events during the COVID-19 pandemic. $150K that would have been used for company social events were pivoted to support community organizations across the globe, chosen by employees.

This gave life to our annual "Global Giving" campaign that we celebrate the week of #GivingTuesday. In 2022, we decided to celebrate our new commitment to 1% for the Planet by selecting global nonprofits focused on protecting biodiversity.

2021 Focus: Community Need: Basic Health Care, Food Insecurity, Shelter

2022 Focus: Protecting Biodiversity at CST
