TORONTO, ON., July 12, 2017 /3BL Media/ - Imagine Canada, a national advocate on behalf of a strong charitable sector, will release the inaugural Canadian Corporate Community Investment Report in the fall of 2017 to illustrate the impact of Canadian corporate investment that strengthens communities across the country. The report features Caring Companies that are achieving the 1% of pre-tax profit designation and the impact of the LBG Canada network of companies.
In 2016, stakeholder contributions enabled by LBG Canada companies totalled $115 Million. $54 Million of that total was employee giving!
90% of LBG Canada companies have a matched giving program, typically this involves the company matching dollar-for-dollar a charitable donation made by an employee. Some companies choose to match at a rate of 2:1 for donations made by executives. Matched giving essentially doubles the contribution and conceivably incentivizes charitable behaviour by sending a positive message to employees about the company's commitment to community.
As companies navigate the economic climate, community investment budgets are often impacted. Oil & Gas, Mining, Manufacturing, Forestry, Retail... the list of companies working through change is endless and ever-changing itself!
Among those that have experienced declines in community investment budgets, companies within LBG Canada demonstrate that a community footprint can be maintained, in partnership with stakeholders.
While more and more studies are being published that link employee engagement to volunteer experiences, Chris Jarvis of Realized Worth will tell you that too many companies are missing opportunities to truly engage their employees. Why? Because they are thinking about
LBG Canada has been represented in conversations about the potential of volunteering to contribute to the achievement the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), i.e. Impact 2030, for just over a year now. Chris Jarvis and the team at Realized Worth were founding partners of Impact 2030 in 2011 and continue to lead Impact 2030’s evolution.
