In Colorado, businesses are playing an increasingly significant role in addressing the complex issues facing our communities. Corporate giving, community engagement, strategic involvement, and employee volunteering are just some of the ways that businesses serve as vital contributors to the social sector and deliver significant value to both the business and to society. Companies who are as passionate about giving back as they are about growing success for their companies abound in Colorado, as they align community involvement with key business goals.
For the first time in our state, we are collecting data from businesses of all sizes and across industries to frame our Colorado story about how and why businesses are involved in the communities they serve. We will better understand the methods, impacts and best practices behind the work often referred to as corporate social responsibility (CSR), alongside the motivation and business case behind community engagement, and opportunities and barriers for corporate community engagement.
B:CIVIC has partnered with TIAA, the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, the University of Denver and DaVita to develop this first-ever report. The information will be collected and analyzed by regionally known Corona Research, who will collect information from nearly 500 businesses. We believe this work and information is crucial for cross-sector community problem-solving. We invite you to participate in this survey and to help us understand our collective work and impact.
Because all companies are eligible to participate, if you have not yet received your unique invitation from us, please contact us directly at 720.428.7000.
