Social Impact

AppNexus’ mission is to create a better internet. We support this by building a global community within AppNexus committed to civic participation and positive social change. We do this through our employee-led social good program — AppNexus IMPACT — comprising volunteering, community engagement, public policy, and advocacy, and by leveraging our technology for good.

Volunteering

At AppNexus, employees are encouraged to share causes close to their hearts with colleagues around the world. Our volunteer program creates positive social change, while helping employees develop their skills and connections to each other.

During our 2017 Global Impact Week, over 540 employees volunteered their time to support 30 non-profits across 16 offices, giving back to their communities, and making their mark on the world.
