B:CIVIC Welcomes The Corporate Community Investment Network

ccin logoWe’re excited to announce a great opportunity for B:CIVIC Members! The Corporate Community Investment Network (CCIN), a long-standing peer network for professionals tasked with making a positive impact on communities on behalf of their companies in a for-profit business setting will now be managed by B:CIVIC. Joyce Witte of Founding Board Member Encana started CCIN, and the network has held regular meetings every other month for years. The role of CCIN is to provide a confidential forum to share and discuss best and worst practices, engage in peer networking, encourage personal development and share resources to enhance the CI profession.

CCIN has now transitioned to serve as a B:CIVIC Affinity Group and will continue as a corporate funders peer group. The first meeting will take place next month.

Interested in joining? There are a few qualifiers your business has to meet.

CCIN Eligibility:

  • You must be employed by a for-profit company, perform a community investment (CI) role and have influence over a CI budget.
  • The budget must include an allocation by the company directed to corporate grants, employee volunteerism, employee matching gifts, or in-kind products or services.
  • CCIN is not a forum for fundraising or solicitation, and is closed to non-profit organizations.
  • To participate, you are required to sign a confidentiality agreement.

Please note that other B:CIVIC Affinity Groups (such as for small businesses and companies just starting a community investment program) are under development and will be announced shortly.
