GiveLight Won Paypal Business Challenge

PBCTrophyShot 250x188Earlier this summer, Paypal held its third Annual Business Challenge and invited more than a dozen non-profit organizations in the Bay Area to participate in the program. Givelight made it to the list of selected organizations. Paypal assigned six of its top technologists to work on our technical challenges and we decided to focus on two projects that have the greatest impact, which includes improving the appeal of our online presence and the donation flow. In November, the judges nominated GiveLight as the winner of the 2015 PayPal Business Challenge in San Jose!

We are indebted to Paypal and its six wonderful employees who proactively chose to be on the GiveLight team: Wendy Yu, Chaitan Kanugo, Xin Zhong, Dhawan Gayash, Hester Seth and Sapna Rustagi. They worked diligently over the last few months to solve our technical problems and successfully deliver on the project scope. Although the project has ended, they plan to continue to volunteer for us. We feel very honored and look forward to working on more innovative projects with the bright Paypal team.
