On September 9th, AXA Strategic Ventures announced a significant investment in VolunteerSpot (AXA Strategic Ventures led the USD1.3 million funding round), a free event planning and community engagement platform that saves time, simplifies coordination, and boosts participation with easy-to-use digital sign-up and fundraising tools for parents, teachers and volunteers. VolunteerSpot enables users to select where they want to pitch-in, share or swap tasks, make donations, purchase tickets, sync sign-ups to their online calendars, and send automatic messages and reminders.
In the United States, more than seven million families, teachers and involved community members have used VolunteerSpot to participate in over 20 million school and classroom activities and good works in local fundraisers, sporting events, community service projects, potlucks, charity walks and races, and more.

We have deep roots in the K-12 education community through our retirement planning services for teachers and school administrators, as well as our philanthropic work through the AXA Achievement Scholarship Program.
