Define or name Corporate Philanthropy as you will, corporate responsibility, corporate giving, corporate citizenship, community relations or any other way of describing it, it is all part of your company’s corporate culture.
Corporate Culture refers to the beliefs and behaviors that determine how a company’s employees and management perceive your company.
An integral part of how your company is perceived by your customers, clients, your local community and the general population as a whole, has much to do with corporate culture.
To a great extent, how a company’s management and employees interact with the public is determined by corporate culture… and… Corporate Philanthropy… always helps to promote, project and protect a company’s overall good image in the eyes of the public.
Humanitarian and other good works of a company also directly benefit the recipients of any charitable cause a company may choose to support.
Small businesses up to major corporations donate more than $17 billion per year to nonprofit organizations.
What Are The Components of Corporate Philanthropy?
There are many ways a company can contribute to great causes. A method business owners and corporate managers are most familiar with is providing direct donations or grants in the form of a company check.
The ONE that will do the most to establish and maintain a great corporate culture is Employee Volunteerism!
This year, 62.6 million Americans volunteered for nearly 7.7 billion hours, according to the Corporation for National and Community Service’s annual “Volunteering and Civic Life in America Report.”
Most nonprofits rely heavily on volunteers to accomplish their charitable goals. When companies recognize and reward those volunteer efforts, employees become more engaged, productive and happier in the workplace.
A great way to recognize and reward your employees for their charitable donations or volunteer activity they do, is by matching funds with their personal donations, or by matching funds with the results of their fundraising activity on behalf of a nonprofit organization.
65% of Fortune 500 companies offer matching gift programs. Over 18 million individuals work for companies with matching funds or matching gift programs. An estimated $2-3 billion is donated through matching gift programs annually.
Encouraging your employees to volunteer helps people and improves corporate culture!
