Twelve Gives Back
Core to our DNA is a passion for giving back to the communities in which we live and work. Over the last several years, Twelve has chosen to invest in three programs that we believe make a huge impact. First, Twelve donates funds to local schools on behalf of our clients through our Empowering Leaders program, which provides much-needed technology resources for students. Second, we partner with the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital along with Jason Zucker (of the Minnesota Wild) and Carly Zucker to support the Zucker Family Suite and Broadcast Studio. Finally, we support Playworks, an organization that helps kids to stay active and build valuable social and emotional skills through play. We love Playworks so much that every Twelve employee volunteers with Playworks at recess as a part of our new employee onboarding program.

Making time for happy and healthy. Your best work is done by your best self. At Twelve, we recognize that fact and live it every day. From Wellness Wednesday workouts to hiring events at local fitness clubs, to the MS 150-mile bike ride, to offering healthy snack choices in the office, Twelve is proud to support our people in their pursuit of health and happiness.
Our children are the leaders of the future, and we want them to have the tools to navigate the world. We believe that technology opens doors in amazing and unexpected ways. We continue to see these doors open for us internally as well as for our customers with the help of Anaplan and other incredible technologies.
The Empowering Leaders Program is designed to provide eligible clients with an opportunity to select a school in their community for us to donate to on their behalf. The funds are contributed to the school with the request that they are used to improve the school’s technology resources to increase opportunities available to students.
To date, Twelve has contributed $50k+ through our Empowering Leaders Program.
Two years ago, we began a lasting and growing partnership with Playworks. We began by donating recess equipment, participating in their annual Soirée for Play, and volunteering with local children during recess. Today, our partnership has evolved to Jill King (founding partner) becoming a board member, multiple cash donations, annual team participation in the Minneapolis and Chicago Playworks Kickball Tournaments, and our new hires volunteering with Playworks at recess as part of their onboarding experience. Playworks Corporate Recess has taken our all-team Annual Kickoff Meetings to a whole new level over the past 2 years – we are blown away by the value it brings to Twelve!
