Strategic volunteerism, when carefully designed to match expertise to need, is a critical component of supporting nonprofit partners. Join corporate grantmakers and corporate volunteer coordinators for a peer-to-peer conversation about harnessing the time and talent of your colleagues at all levels to address true community needs. This working breakfast will focus upon best practices in aligning your company’s grantmaking and volunteer programs, as well as examples of how to measure the business and social impacts of those efforts.
This working group, which is held quarterly and rooted in the principles of Reimagining Service, provides an opportunity for both corporate grantmakers and corporate volunteer managers to network, share successes and challenges, brainstorm on solutions, and explore new opportunities to make a difference in society while supporting business objectives through volunteerism. We invite you to contribute to the conversation.
At our last session, we asked participants for input on the topics they’d most like to discuss. Based on the responses we heard, our February 6th session will focus on:
- Measuring the impact of volunteerism
- Connecting volunteerism to financial giving
This is a Philanthropy New York Collaborative Program co-hosted by CECP.
