ZoomInfo employees will raise more than $ 2 million for local nonprofits during the 2021 winter fundraiser

Donations to support 11 non-profit youth and family organizations in the company’s local communities

VANCOUVER, Washington, January 11, 2022– (BUSINESS WIRE) – ZoomInfo (NASDAQ: ZI), a global leader in advanced go-to-market software, data and intelligence, announced today that ZoomInfo employees teamed up for the final winter fundraiser in 2021 to raise more than $ 2 million for nonprofits focused on youth and families in the local communities where she serves.

Over $ 1 million of these funds was raised to support the Family & Community Resource Centers at Evergreen Public Schools near ZoomInfo headquarters in Vancouver, Washington.

“On behalf of our school community, Evergreen Public Schools cannot thank ZoomInfo and its staff deeply enough for their continued support and generosity,” said Karen Fox, director, federal programs at Evergreen Public Schools. “These funds will allow us to power additional resource centers that will provide daily support to students in addition to providing emergency shelter and utilities, basic needs and medical assistance to students and families. To say that the support of the ZoomInfo team from Evergreen Public School Families is helpful is an understatement; their efforts enable families to bridge the gap between their current resources and their current needs. We are extremely grateful for the commitment of the ZoomInfo team to invest in the hearts and minds of our community. “

Employees based in Waltham, Massachusetts donated more than $ 130,000 to Cradles to Crayons.

“ZoomInfo’s generous donation will have a tremendous impact on families struggling in Massachusetts,” said Aubrey Conquergood, executive director of Cradles to Crayons Boston. “We cannot fully express our appreciation for their contribution and continued support, especially as families continue to feel the pressure of the pandemic. This support will enable us to help important items such as clothing, winter coats, diapers, hygiene kits, school supplies and more children in need while relieving their parents and carers. “

Given the ongoing challenges in 2021, employees broke another ZoomInfo company record for funds raised through the annual month-long event. They more than tripled the $ 650,000 they raised in 2020 to bring the total to over $ 3.26 million in cash and in-kind donations for six years.

“Our teams recognize that it is not enough to just do good, but that it is a responsibility of those who do well to also do good,” said ZoomInfo CEO and founder Henry Schuck, who along with his wife Jessica matched the employees’ donations.

This total includes a donation of more than $ 100,000 from ZoomInfo co-founder Kirk Brown and his wife Ashley.

The employees once again let their creativity run free to raise money for their purposes by auctioning various experiences and self-made objects.

During the 2021 winter fundraiser, ZoomInfo employees raised funds for 11 US-based organizations in their communities, as well as for several international nonprofits:
