Snowflake for Good

One of Snowflake’s company values is to “Make each other the best.” We give back to our communities in meaningful ways and inspire others to do the same. From Snowflake’s early days, we have been involved in projects that make a difference.

With a handful of employees or the entire company, we take time out to assist with humanitarian, environmental, educational, and many other efforts that deliver impact, locally and globally. Here are some of the efforts Snowflake and its valued employees engage in to help others.

Supporting Initiatives That Make a Difference

Snowflake has developed a relationship with several organizations to promote and contribute to the enhanced equality of opportunity in technology.

Women in Data

Women in Data aims to narrow the gender gap in data science and data analytics by encouraging more diverse representation in these industries. The organization raises awareness through events, including its namesake annual conference that attracts thousands of data professionals.

Snowflake supports Women in Data by sponsoring events, serving on discussion panels, and advocating for women across data science and analytics. Snowflake also partners with Women in Data to support the organization’s annual Women in Data and Technology awards.

ENABLING DATA CHAMPIONS

Providing assistance to organizations built to serve and help others is core to Snowflake. But we also recognize the significantly bigger impact of enabling other organizations to do the same.

The Data Cloud offers the technology, data, and global network so Snowflake customers can unify, analyze, and share data to reveal insights not possible before. Here are just some of our customers that deliver impact to those in need.

Children’s Hospitals Association

The Association advances child health through innovation in the quality, cost, and delivery of care across 220 children’s hospitals nationwide. With Snowflake, Children’s Hospital Association has drastically improved their data operations while also improving overall security around sensitive data when shared with customers. By having an easy-to-use and scalable data platform, the Association can provide better services to the children through increased access to deep data insights for research related to the care and quality of health services provided.

Kiva alleviates poverty by supplying over $1.29 billion dollars in loan capital to more than 85 countries via their non-profit marketplace. With Snowflake, Kiva is able to make quicker data-driven decisions regarding loan structure and market investment, putting funds where communities need it most. Kiva’s also uses Snowflake to deliver consistent and reliable data reports to trustees and business partners, who help Kiva source entrepreneurs, screen borrowers, post loan requests, disburse loans, and collect payments – ultimately empowering Kiva towards their vision of a financially inclusive world where people hold the power to improve their lives.
