Employee giving & volunteering
To build on our longstanding value of giving back to our local communities, we offer two meaningful programs to our employees – the Exelixis Employee Giving and Volunteer Programs – that provide opportunities for our team to make a purposeful impact in communities where they live and work.
Employee Giving Program
The Employee Giving Program doubles the impact of employee donations to philanthropic and community organizations that are important to them. Our employees support hundreds of different organizations each year – with focus areas ranging across a broad spectrum of causes.
Employee Volunteer Program
Our Employee Volunteer Program is a way for employees to give back to community causes and organizations. We offer employees dedicated volunteer time off to support nonprofit organizations and programs in their local community. We are proud of our employees’ dedication to unite as a team to donate and volunteer thousands of hours each year to causes close to their hearts.
As a clinical pharmacologist, I have been able to extend my impact beyond work by offering my time and resources to local organizations in the Bay Area that share my passion for promoting the arts and music. I am thankful for the support and encouragement from Exelixis through our Employee Giving and Volunteer Programs for empowering me to make a difference on causes that I deeply value.
My team and I wanted to make a difference in our community together, so we planned a team-building event with the Alameda County Community Food Bank. We enjoyed volunteering our time to a worthy cause, and we left with an overwhelming sense of accomplishment and gratitude and had so much fun in the process.
