What business & nonprofit leaders are saying...

  • Our philanthropy impacts our employee engagement and overall company culture. From group volunteer days together to donating monetarily to organizations that are personal to our employees, we encourage our team members to bring forth any ideas to be involved in philanthropic events in our community.
    -Jamie Mineart, Marketing Manager, Becker Wright Consultants
  • For 72 years, Central Texas has supported us, and we're eager to give back to the very community responsible for our growth. In 2017 alone, we donated more than $40,000 in cash to local rescues and Harvey-impacted organizations. And this year, we'll funnel more than 195,000 pounds of healthy pet food donations to more than 35 local pet rescues, keeping hundreds of homeless pets fed for all of 2018. Philanthropic efforts like these give our daily jobs greater meaning and lays the foundation for a mission our employees can believe in.

Make sure you are getting the most out of your company's philanthropy program.

"When identifying philanthropic partners that will ultimately inspire a team to rally around a cause, it doesn’t take long to realize that people matter as much as the cause and the mission. Lisa Rodman helped me to see that, while associating with non-profit partners that will align with your corporate strategy is the minimum goal, discovering partners that will bring your employees’ hearts into the fold is simply priceless. One must never underestimate the power of true inspiration.” – Bill Duffy, Vice President of U.S. Operations, Sky Zone Franchise Group
