Seattle Times on Google’s G-Give

UW CSE alums Krista Davis, Jeff Prouty, and Jessan Hutchinson-Quillian - part of the G-Give team

UW CSE alums Krista Davis (left) and Jessan Hutchison-Quillian (right) created the successful Google G-Give employee giving program. Jeff Prouty (center) is also a UW alum and helped develop G-Give.

“Two Google employees who graduated from the University of Washington have come up with a simplified way for their fellow workers to give money to social causes — an idea that raised about $120,000 for an endowed scholarship at the UW just this week … The program also raised money for the Seattle office of Solid Ground and the Kirkland office of Hopelink, as well as the Vittana Foundation, Social Justice Fund Northwest and the Post-Prison Education Program.  Each program was showcased for a day on the company’s G-Give website.”
