The value of a commercial property is tied to the prosperity of the community in which it stands.
Places with Purpose unlocks a radically new way for commercial property owners, tenants, and vendors to partner in creating thriving building communities whose positive impacts extend far beyond a building's walls. Places with Purpose isn’t just a SaaS solution. Participating properties can be designated as a Social Value Building™, signifying building stakeholders’ deep commitment to the well-being of the surrounding community.

Givewith’s SaaS platform allows owners to control all elements of their Social Value Building, seamlessly in one place

Offer Social Impact as a building amenity; create community through on-demand volunteer opportunities and dynamic lobby video displays. Tenants of a Social Value Building gain Givewith platform access to track and share the building community’s impact through a digital suite of storytelling assets designed for diverse stakeholders and to be shared across social media outlets.
Vendors that support building operations can also partner to support community impact by allocating a percent of the contract value to funding a Social Impact program.

Participating vendors also have platform access to track and share the building community’s impact through a digital suite of storytelling assets designed for diverse stakeholders and to be shared across social media outlets.
Equip brokers with robust marketing and sales materials to attract new tenants. Owners are also able to attract and retain tenants with ready-to-go leasing and broker collateral.
Tenants are increasingly looking for property differentiators and amenities in their leasing decisions. The Social Value Designation provides a one-of-a-kind tenant amenity that adds real business value for tenants through positive impact on employee recruitment & retention, workplace environment, and contributions to corporate strategy, sustainability and corporate social responsibility.
Contracting with a Social Value Building offers vendors a unique opportunity to deepen relationships with property owners. Research shows owners value this shared experience as much, if not more than other sales incentives or discounts vendors might offer. Vendors now can seamlessly embed social impact and corporate social responsibility strategy simply by doing business with designated Social Value Buildings.
