Nextiva Cares
2017 Annual Report

From snuggling with puppies to scarfing down Italian Ice, the Nextiva Cares team made some pretty great memories helping others in 2017. Below are some of the ways we partnered with our Phoenix community, strengthened our bond as a family, and set bigger and better charitable goals for 2018. As we grow, we hope to make even more of an impact this coming year!

Favorite Nextiva Cares Experience:
“As a lifelong pet owner, Nextiva’s visit to the Humane Society to make kitty blankets was a special opportunity for me since nearly all of my pets have been rescues. I love that Nextiva Cares selects charities that hold great meaning for a lot of us, and it’s an honor to be part of a company that places great importance on charitable giving.”

Staci Matt - Customer Success Marketing Manager
Nextiva Cares volunteer since 2015

Favorite Nextiva Cares Experience:
“Working with the Arizona Humane Society was definitely a highlight of this year! The month kicked off with a visit from two adorable adoptable puppies (who went home with Nextiva employees!) and ended with making blankets for kittens. When doing good is combined with fur baby snuggles, what’s not to love?!”

Doug Hooten - Account Executive
Nextiva Cares volunteer since 2016

Favorite Nextiva Cares Experience:
“My favorite Nextiva Cares event was definitely when we worked with CASS! Many of us volunteered at their location in downtown Phoenix, where we sorted through donated clothing based on gender, size, and season. It was awesome to come together with my friends from Nextiva and help the homeless community while also having a blast. I can’t wait to do it again.”
