As New York City area companies we understand and value service for impact as a business imperative. We believe strategic volunteerism is a critical component of how corporations harness the time and talent of colleagues at all levels to support nonprofit partners and meet true community needs. We strive to provide deep and wide support to nonprofit partners (board service, front line and skills-based volunteers, pro bono support).

How can we best put these principles into practice?

Join the next Service For Impact Working Group quarterly meeting where we’ll review effective practices in corporate employee volunteerism, rooted in the principles for Reimagining Service. Together, we'll assess how our work aligns with these practices, and share examples of what we’re doing well, as well as practice areas where we’d like to see improvements. Then we’ll brainstorm program management challenges – from those more operational and administrative, to staffing and working with vendors – that can help inform our future group discussions.

The Service for Impact Working Group is rooted in the principles of Reimagining Service. We meet quarterly to provide opportunities for both corporate grantmakers and corporate volunteer managers to foster a peer 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.

  • How your institution’s service for impact efforts align with what we know to be effective corporate practice
  • What other corporations are doing that’s effective and where they’d like to improve their practice
  • What program management challenges corporations typically face when it comes to service for impact
