Needless to say, our little white church building was starting to burst at the seams, and good luck if you could land a conference room ;)
After months of searching the Charleston real estate market, we finally landed on a two-story building on Montague Avenue. Last Friday, February 26, the Good Done Great Charleston HQ celebrated our year at the church with a goodbye send-off at the adjacent Rutledge Cab Company.
This past weekend saw many GDG-ers assist with the big move by unpacking boxes, building desks, and connecting routers. As the dust settles, we are back to the grind in our new digs which includes two floors, an elevator, and plenty of conference and collaboration space.

CHARLESTON, SC, February 8, 2016 — Good Done Great, a technology enabled CSR company, announces today the official launch of GDG 2.0, the only fully-unified corporate social responsibility software platform. The cloud-based platform enables Fortune 1000 companies to execute engaging employee giving, volunteer and corporate grant programs and initiatives through one platform.
“Until now, corporations wanting to unify their CSR programs have been hampered by technology solutions that separated grant making, from volunteer efforts from employee giving programs,” said Earl Bridges, Good Done Great co-founder and president. “That made measuring and telling compelling data-driven stories about their total social impact very difficult.”
Through the new Good Done Great unified CSR suite, corporations have the ability to access data and report impact in the way that is most relevant to their stakeholders and key constituents. Corporations wanting to measure total impact in a single community or region through their grantmaking, volunteer efforts and employee giving can easily and seamlessly do so through the unified reporting functions. Reporting total impact as it relates to a cause or nonprofit organization is equally efficient.
The Give and Volunteer apps of GDG 2.0 include the ability to perform employee matching gift requests, payroll deductions, sign up for volunteer events, apply for volunteer grants, and participate in team and skills-based volunteerism, along with all the flexibility needed to deploy other types of unique programs and workflows. Grant provides grant-administrators the ability to review, process, and award corporate grants while communicating effectively with applicants.
The Good Done Great CSR technology suite will be featured in a webinar discussing the benefits of, and trends in, unified corporate social responsibility initiatives at 2:00 PM EST on February 11th. Registration is currently open to all interested participants at https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/1313062446972906242
