"Marketo is committed to giving back to the communities that allow us to thrive, investing our time and resources in the activities that will lead to a brighter future," said Teresa Grau, senior vice president, Human Resources, Marketo. "That's why we chose the theme of 'Inspiring Student Success' for this year's Global Volunteer Month, activating our employees to support students worldwide in the vital skills of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics."
From offices in Atlanta; Dublin, Ireland; London; Portland, Ore.; company headquarters in San Mateo, Calif.; Sydney; Tel Aviv; Tokyo; and Marketo's newest location in Denver, Colo., employees will participate in activities such as:
- Mentorship sessions
- School beautification projects and neighborhood cleanups

Global Volunteer Month began in 2015 and is a central part of Marketo Engaged, a social good program that focuses on empowering underserved students on their journeys to and through college. Beyond education, Marketo supports its employees in giving back to the causes that matter most to them through paid volunteer days, ongoing company-supported activities, and donation matching. Marketo employees donated over 4,000 hours of service and supported nearly 300 different non-profits in 2016.
