Regardless of religious affiliation or feelings about eggnog, the end of the year is invariably a time for a reflection. It’s the closing of another chapter and an opportunity look back and consider the distance we’ve travelled.

At Zendesk, we look out over the past year and realize that we have so much to be thankful for. Our growing company has brought us loyal customers, who in turn have given us the resources to make meaningful contributions to our communities. By selecting our Zendesk Starter plan, our customers have recently helped us exceed $1 million in donations for organizations including:

St. Anthony’s Foundation
Dry July
Temple Street University Children's Hospital
charity: water

2014 was also a year in which some of our amazing customers–such as Uber, AdRoll, Zillow, Farfetch, and Datasphere–joined us on a number of volunteering activities in San Francisco and elsewhere. This was a first for us, and we’re really happy with the way this brand new initiative worked out. We will continue to look at new and meaningful ways to build relationships in the coming year.

In 2014, Zendesk helped launch Link-SF, an app that connects needy members of the community with services and resources
