How the right grants software can boost your corporate, social and employer brand with no additional budget
While workplace giving, matching and volunteering programs are becoming bigger pieces of the CSR picture, large grants allow charities to implement programs and projects that are mission critical to advance their causes. However, as the landscape of community investment changes, so too does the opportunity to increase both the social and business ROI of grants.
With 52 Tuesdays in a year, companies can infuse empathy, meaning and purpose into their culture all year long
It’s been a week since #GivingTuesday 2017, and we’re still overwhelmed by the incredible participation of companies – and their people – in this global movement.
From individual giving to companies mobilizing their workforces, #GivingTuesday broke records again. People and companies around the world harnessed the power of prosocial behavior and the reach of social media to come together around the values of giving back, raising a staggering $264.6 million worldwide in its sixth year.
This #GivingTuesday Orbis encourages supporters to give the gift of sight by participating in our matching challenge. One of our generous donors has agreed to match all #GivingTuesday donations up to $25,000. Funds will support our vision restoring work in places like Bangladesh, where four-year-old Halima had two cataracts removed by an Orbis-trained surgeon.
Today, and every single day, 43 families will hear the devastating news that no parent should hear: their child has cancer. At CureSearch, it is our goal to protect the future of those children diagnosed with cancer by delivering better, less-toxic treatments NOW.
Join our #GivingTuesday goal of achieving 43 recurring monthly gifts to honor these children.
#GivingTuesday is November 28th, and we have something super in store for 2017’s global day of giving. This year, we’ll harness the power of our GKTW Family and social media to make our greatest impact to date.
That’s where you come in. We’re calling on you and your superpowers to be a hero for the brave kids we serve. We need your help to inspire others to suit up and join us as superheroes!

Many of our greatest memories are made with the children in our lives, whether it be our children, nieces, nephews, or grandchildren, center around the holidays; there is something truly magical about this time of year. Unfortunately, some families only have a limited time to make incredible memories with the children in their lives, since many children are fighting a critical or chronic illness.
According to America’s Charities’ Snapshot 2017 report, nearly 71 percent of workplace donors say that they want to work for employers who have missions and values that align with their own personal values. What’s more, nearly 6 in 10 workplace donors say they want to work for companies where the culture supports giving and volunteering.
When it comes to annual check-ups we make it a priority to visit the doctor, dentist or even a vehicle inspection. Although many of us put it off as long as we can, or even avoid it all together. Why? Fear of bad news, fear of being judged, fear of costs, fear of change…the list goes on. But check-ups are necessary and good for us. The same holds true with your employee giving program. No better time than now to get started. Not sure where to begin?
