The company’s corporate giving program empowers employees to determine which charitable organizations will receive monetary donations. In 2011, HomeAway gave $175,000+ to more than 60 non-profit organizations in the US alone. We also select one organization to be the company's major corporate philanthropy partner each year. As a result, we've made a commitment to Austin Habitat for Humanity and have worked with them in a variety of capacities from fundraising to participating in builds, since launching our corporate giving program in 2010.

Also, at HomeAway we feel that while it’s helpful to write a check, its even more rewarding to get your hands dirty to support a cause. As a result, we encourage volunteerism and each full-time employee is given two days of paid time off to volunteer. One day is designed to give them the opportunity to work on a HomeAway project and the other is to be used volunteering with an organization of their choice.
