Over $5 Billion is raised through workplace giving annually. But today’s workforce has evolved to expect more options and transparency from your corporate giving programs. When charitable choice is given, employee participation increases. But how do you align your preferred causes with current NPO partners such as the United Way, with expanded choices employees are looking for? How can you offer the greatest choice, maximize matching opportunities, and still align preferred causes?

One of the great parts of my role at CyberGrants is the strategic interaction with our clients. I love our clients. The energy and passion for what they do – across grant making and employee programs – is contagious. Our clients quite literally change the world for the better, sometimes on a large scale, and always on an individual scale. At the recent SILC 2019 conference, I had the opportunity to meet and talk with many of our clients about the state of their Corporate Social Responsibility programs.

The best part of the corporate social engagement process is its people.
The best part of the corporate social engagement process is its people. Especially those who are our evangelist to share, describe and empower social impact and its key factors to demonstrate the ongoing commitment to social missions and local needs. An instrumental function in our people driven engagement is the Employee Resource Group. Employee resource groups (also known as ERGs, affinity groups, or business network groups) are a collective of employees who join together in their workplace based on shared characteristics or life experiences.
So - we know our clients are incredible. But it’s nice to see them recognized by others too…
