These days, it’s not if a disaster happens anymore, but when. And when there’s a need, you want to be there, on the front lines, NOW.
Urgency is more than being purely reactive, however. It’s about aggressively going after the right causes. You have an imperative to direct your dollars strategically to emerging needs where they can provide the most positive impact — while simultaneously aligning with your organization’s missions and values.
Again this year, people around the world came together for another record-setting day of giving. With estimates coming in at over $500 million in the US alone, and growth at nearly 28% over 2018*, the impact of Giving Tuesday has been enormous. We’re proud to announce that our clients made an incredible impact on the overall contributions collected, and new records were set this year.

During their recent National Day of Service, members of Clif Bar’s employee giving and engagement program, CLIF® CORPS, got their hands dirty at national parks, monuments and historic sites across the US and Canada.

The act of giving is simple, but does your employee personal giving process seem unnecessarily complex? You're not alone.

You're not alone.
In its simplest form, employee giving is a linear process - an employee gives, a corporate process is engaged for a match, some magic happens around ensuring the money is going to an eligible organization, funds are disbursed, and good stuff happens!
In reality, we know it is often not that simple, and certainly not that efficient. It does not have to be this way.
You may be doing all the right things to support CRA, but are you getting all the credit you deserve?
You may be doing all the right things to support CRA, but are you getting all the credit you deserve? Identifying and tracking CRA service credits are often largely untapped opportunities for banks. That is particularly true if your bank has Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs that also support your CRA efforts.
One of the greatest benefits of having a corporate volunteer program is that it engages the workforce by providing a meaningful and valuable experience that gives back to the world. In fact, a recent CECP study found the most socially involved companies had a minimum of 50% employee participation in CSR efforts!
How can you offer the greatest choice, maximize matching opportunities, and still align preferred causes? Listen to learn more.
Over $5 Billion is raised through workplace giving annually. But today’s workforce has evolved to expect more options and transparency from corporate giving programs. When charitable choice is given, employee participation increases. But how do you align your preferred causes with current NPO partners, with expanded choices employees are looking for? Add to that, 84% of donors say they’re more likely to give if a match is offered, yet $5-$7 Billion in matching gift funds goes unclaimed every year.

By Pete Karns, VP Operations
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.
As CSR is finally settling in and finding its place in the business world, everyone from the C-Suite on down are realizing that they can play a significant role to address these challenges. How do you make CSR champions at your organization?
