Corporations are evolving their general philanthropy approaches towards supporting causes more tightly aligned with other company initiatives. This reflects a desire to be strategically consistent, purpose driven, and to concentrate giving that produces the most impact. We see this first-hand with our progressive CyberGrants clients. But don’t just take our word for it. There are several industry studies that validate this trend.
The need for corporate giving is off the charts. So do you just give more dollars?
We see your dilemma every single day. More events, more urgency and more distress. But just giving more dollars isn’t necessarily better. Doing it quickly, and with focus on making your dollar go further is what creates impact for you.

How to get the most impact from your grantmaking, volunteer and employee-giving
The shift from single, point in time campaigns to providing a range options results in more giving, engagement, and impact.
We’ve all witnessed it. Technology advancements have given employees access. And access means new ways to give, and not necessarily through work. Concurrently, technology has made organizations more agile, to the extent that companies have completely flipped their philanthropy strategies and made recurring giving a cornerstone of their overall corporate citizenship efforts.
We certainly don’t need to inform you how great the demand is for corporate giving. Our shared world is rife with want and chaos and emergencies. The need is everywhere. Worthy, urgent causes roar up literally overnight. And thankfully, there’s people like you, and organizations like yours, who jump in and help in big ways. Whether through grantmaking, employee donations or volunteer programs, the challenges are the same. How can you best mobilize your resources, generate maximal impact, and deliver that impact as quickly to the point of need?
As a company actively involved with Corporate Social Responsibility for more than 20 years, we’re often asked about significant changes, relative to our clients, that we’ve observed over that span. Interestingly, from our unique and intimate industry lens, the biggest developments have occurred most recently, within the last 18 months or so. Two changes in particular. First, the concept that corporations should be “responsible” to society is now a given.
Make your mission come to life by harnessing powerful, peer-driven techniques to increase engagement
We see it every single day. Both within our own company and those of our clients. The face of the workforce is changing. And so are the dynamics that motivate your employees to participate — or not — in corporate charitable giving programs.
ANDOVER, Mass., January 29, 2019 /3BL Media/ -- CyberGrants, the global leader in Agile Social Impact technology, announced record growth in 2018 on key Employee Engagement measures. The number of employees in the CyberGrants system and the number of gifts processed are both up significantly versus the previous year.
Our annual Pajama Drive reached new heights this year with the help of CyberGrants new Viral Engagement features. This is the fourth consecutive year we've collected pajamas to donate to families in need, but the first year we've been able to use our Viral Engagement features to generate even more excitement among our employees about our effort. A live leaderboard intensified our usual friendly competition and the activity feed allowed employees to be more engaged by sharing photos and team updates.
The true definition of agile is “able to move quickly and easily” and when it comes to project management, it’s often used to describe a method to developing software. So while agile software is the process in which it is built, the software itself can also work with agility to provide users with a better experience.
