New Story Charity Teams with DocuSign Impact to Build 100 Homes in 100 Days in Haiti

September 24, 2015

Using DocuSign's DTM platform and offline signing capability, New Story replaced its process of manually filling out, scanning, and uploading documents with DocuSign's fully digital solution. The move to DocuSign empowered volunteers in the field to sign, send, and complete transactions offline via mobile devices, guarantee security and compliance across processes, and more efficiently help families in need. Fueled by these efficiencies, the New Story team set out to build 100 homes in 100 days for struggling families in Haiti and was able to achieve its goal after just 91 days.

"DocuSign has made it possible for New Story to operate 100% digitally in the field – removing the hassles and costs that traditional charities take on with paper processes," said Arrieta. "I'm grateful to work for an organization like DocuSign where the company culture is infused with a philanthropic ethos that allows employees to drive positive change in the world. With the launch of DocuSign Impact, I'm now able to use volunteer time off to fulfill my personal passion of bringing new homes to families in need so they can start their own new story."

"We're excited to bring the power of DocuSign to nonprofits through DocuSign Impact, transforming lives by transforming charities," said DocuSign Impact Executive Director Amy Skeeters-Behrens. "Mike is a tremendous asset to DocuSign's business, but as co-founder of a nonprofit like New Story, he sets a tremendous example of what it means to have a broader impact on the world around us. I'm proud of the employees across the DocuSign family who are working to enrich the communities around them."

DocuSign Impact is organized around three pillars of corporate philanthropy: employee volunteerism, the creation of the DocuSign Impact Foundation to match employee donations, and product discounts for qualifying nonprofits. DocuSign Impact empowers employee volunteerism with three days paid time off annually for every employee to volunteer at nonprofits of their choice.
