We are a force of business leaders who are as passionate about giving back as we are about running smart, successful companies.
B:CIVIC is the only organization in Colorado focused for professionals and business leaders in for-profit companies who are responsible for civic philanthropy. We know that companies of all shapes, sizes and industries focus on the business of their business, and we created B:CIVIC to also give these companies information, insight and a network to learn more about how to be civic-minded while meeting business goals.
So, we’re getting the good going.
Join us. Whether you are a one-person CSR team, owner of a business, lead a corporate Foundation, or are otherwise involved in corporate philanthropy, you need to be a part of the B:CIVIC community. Because together we will increase the amount of philanthropy, employee engagement and collective good for the community. And, we’ll help your business meet its goals too.

B:CIVIC Members’ Perspectives
“With more than 20 years behind us, CoBiz Financial looks ahead to what the next 20 years will bring. Placing community at the very heart of what we do, we are committed to a culture that gives back and inspires volunteerism and a passion to support our local communities in Colorado and Arizona.”
“Our actions matter more than words. At Molson Coors we believe you should be able to see how we run our business because part of being responsible is making sure you can see how we’re doing. Download our 2015 Responsibility Report to get the data on the responsibility you expect.”
“A healthy business depends on thriving communities. Ball’s commitment to the communities where we live and operate has been an integral part of our corporate culture ever since the five Ball brothers founded the company in 1880. We support organizations, programs and civic initiatives that advance sustainable livelihoods. For us, community engagement is how our company and our employees enrich the places where we live and work beyond providing jobs, benefits and paying local taxes. Through the Ball Foundation, corporate giving, employee giving and volunteerism, we invest in the future of the communities that sustain us.”

“CH2M is part of B:CIVIC because we believe that collaborating with our for-profit colleagues to help the non-profit sector strengthens both entities in important and lasting ways. Corporate citizenship can be practiced by businesses of all sizes and we can all learn from each other to raise the level of dialogue and interaction to simultaneously raise the level of support provided to meet community needs.”
