Denver, Colo., March 25, 2020 – Velocity Global, the leading provider of global expansion solutions, announced it will donate one percent of its 2020 global profits to non-profit organizations around the world responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. The company will apply its contribution as a match to employee donations, doubling the impact for organizations supporting healthcare and community needs.

“Velocity Global puts people first in all that we do whether it’s our employees, customers, partners or the communities in which we live. Through this initiative we collectively improve the health and wellbeing of our neighbors in the face of this global pandemic,” said Ben Wright, Velocity Global founder and CEO. “As global citizens in more than a dozen countries across five continents, we must support local organizations supplying medical supplies and everyday needs such as food, clothing, and shelter.”

Velocity Global employs more than 200 people in 14 countries across North America, Europe, Asia, South America, and Australia. Employees are encouraged to identify local organizations that resonate with them personally, and the company matches their donation.

“Our employees are active community members, and we’re empowering them to choose needs close to their heart. These contributions support and fund tools for healthcare workers, food banks, and shelters; together we’ll double the impact,” said Wright.

Velocity Global was among the first to join the #leadboldly #stopthespread movement that is now more than 1,500 strong. The CEOs and founders that signed on were early adopters of actions in their workplace to stop the spread of COVID-19 as well as to make commitments to support response and recovery efforts.
