Corporate Giving Programs and Foundations

Corporate Philanthropy refers to the investments and activities a company voluntarily undertakes to responsibly manage and account for its impact on society. It includes investments of money, donations of products, in-kind services and technical assistance, employee volunteerism, and other business transactions to advance a social cause, issue, or the work of a nonprofit organization. Corporate foundations and corporate giving programs traditionally play a major role in these areas.

One year ago today, our nation was rocked by the horrific attack at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida. In a message expressing our solidarity with those affected by the attack, we noted that it was particularly tragic because this event occurred at a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) nightclub during the very month that many across the nation were celebrating LGBTQ pride.

Just before the Annual Conference, the Career Pathways cohort met up in Dallas for our next session. Here’s what we did during these three days of learning, sharing, and growth.

We went all-in right from the start. On the first day, the cohort gathered in a circle to share stories of self-care, personal celebration, promotion, and work/life balance. By now, we were friends reuniting in a familiar space, which enabled us to talk freely about taking risks, seizing opportunities, and navigating our careers as women, people of color, and/or allies focused on DEI.

Three years ago, I met Charles Story at the Grants Managers Network annual conference in San Diego. He was a featured panelist on a session about Extreme Management — successfully leading teams in constantly changing organizational environments. I was so impressed with his insights that we would start working together the following year, and I soon learned that Charles was also an executive coach with the Council’s Career Pathways (CP) Program. When I heard about the program’s goals and curriculum, I was completely sold, and could hardly wait for its reboot in 2017.
