A community dedicated to good.

As Traction on Demand's community engagement program, Traction For Good's purpose is to strengthen the connection between people, causes and communities.

We accomplish this by focusing on four key pillars:

  1. Building capacity through technology
  2. Inspiring Tractionites to give their time, talent or treasure to causes close to their hearts
  3. Growing social business through community-based initiatives
  4. Empowering kids to code, learn and explore through classes, camps and outdoor experiences

Giving what we're good at and giving to what we care about is at the heart of Traction for Good. It's a part of our DNA, and we're better off because of it.

Building Capacity Through Technology

Our mission is to give what we're good at by helping organizations leverage the Salesforce platform. Investing in technology enables organizations to better fulfill their missions to connect with more people, raise more funds, make data-driven decisions and advocate for change.

Traction for Good provides Salesforce service grants, enabling critical funding to nonprofits. We co-fund Salesforce transformations with value-aligned partners and champion causes that resonate with our community. We also provide Salesforce training opportunities to support individuals who are either looking for work or starting their careers in the tech industry.

Inspiring Philanthropy

Traction for Good aims to inspire Tractionites, Friends of Traction and the rest of our community to get involved with organizations that are meaningful to them.

The Time for Good volunteer program provides each Tractionite with two days to volunteer with a cause closest to their heart. The purpose of the program is to support activities that enhance and serve the communities in which we live, work and play.

All new Tractionites are quickly introduced to T4G's philanthropic culture with a $25 Kiva credit. The credit is loaned to an entrepreneur of choice to elevate small businesses and alleviate global poverty.

Growing Social Business

As a values-driven and Certified B Corp company, Traction on Demand puts people and the environment on par with profit. B Corporations consider all of society and not just corporate interests. We've taken this definition to heart and made it a guiding principle in everything we do.

Traction for Good co-founded The Tech Collective to facilitate collaboration between tech companies and encourage startups to incorporate community engagement from the start.

Empowering Kids to Code, Learn and Explore

As demand for tech skills continues to increase, Traction for Good ensures kids are given an opportunity to learn the basics of coding. In partnership with Cycling BC, the Bikes and Bytes summer camp teaches programming principles inside the classroom, while also encouraging young learners to get outside.

Traction for Good believes in teaching the skills needed for kids to become leaders in their community. Our philanthropy workshops encourage kids to explore how they can make a difference.
