Giving Days Archive
Crowd Favorite’s mission is to connect the digital experience to the human experience. To take this one step further, we believe in going beyond what is expected to help and serve others and have taken action to embody that value - using our fortunate position to create as much positive impact for the world as possible.
For several years we have supported and donated to various charitable organizations. In 2020, we added designated paid time-off for employees to participate in charitable giving within their own communities. In 2021, we have expanded the program to include our partners, clients, vendors, employees, and communities.
We have carefully selected charities and organizations that align with our values, support underserved and underrepresented communities, and whose donations go predominately to those they serve. Every two years, our team will cycle to new charities of focus.
Each month we will share the selected charities, we invite you to contribute, volunteer, or promote these organizations along with us- together we make the difference. To participate, contact Giving@CrowdFavorite.com.

No Kid Hungry

But the job isn’t done, and won’t be done until we’ve met that promise and every single child in America has the food they need to grow up healthy and strong.

About Crowd Favorite
The Crowd Favorite name originated from our founder Alex King who, while watching a golf tournament, heard the announcer talking about a player and how, although that player was at the top of his sport, still took the time to look fans in the eyes, shake their hands, and sign their autographs until the last person got one. Alex wanted the same for his company and its clients.
As an expert developer and Open Source Software enthusiast, he set out to create an agency for established and scaling brands where clients could get elite technology services with a friendly, authentic, and approachable experience.
Today, we continue to use that ethos as our North Star - whether that means working with our clients and partners, giving back to the Open Source Community, giving back to underserved and underrepresented communities through Crowd Favorite Giving Days, or supporting our team in their professional growth - we embody the traits of a Crowd Favorite.
