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.
Andy Boian, Founder and CEO, dovetail solutions to Speak at Sparks ‘n Sips, June 16th
We’re excited to announce that Andy Boian, Founder and CEO of dovetail solutions, will speak at the June 16th Sparks ‘n Sips event. We have plans for a highly interactive event, exclusively for professionals from small, medium, and large companies who are already involved in community, communications, marketing and branding. With his vast experience in the corporate, political and non-profit sectors and his dynamic speaking style, Andy is uniquely qualified to address this month’s topic of internal communications. Effectively communicating to a vastly diverse employee base from entry level to the board room and gaining their support and acceptance of community-based initiatives can be a significant task for an organization. Andy has been referred to as a natural “connector,” a term coined from Malcolm Gladwell’s book, The Tipping Point. He’ll reveal the keys to his communication success, address best practices, and lay out specific strategies that can be used to achieve internal communications success in one’s own organization.
Be sure to reserve your seat for this upcoming event now. Space will fill up quickly. Sparks ‘n Sips will be held at Crowe GHP Horwath, 1801 California Street, Denver, CO from 4:00pm-6:00pm, June 16th. Members attend free. Non-members $45.
Here are just a few of the things attendees had to say about our last Sparks ‘n Sips Event:
” The opportunity to network with professionals working in the CSR community at B:Civic events is unparallelled. “
“I liked the caliber of professionals in attendance. Saw some people I haven’t seen in a while.”

“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.”
