What is The Civic 50 Colorado?

Since 2012, The Civic 50, an initiative of Points of Light has recognized the 50 most community-minded major corporations in the nation as determined by an annual survey developed by True Impact.

By benchmarking and celebrating best practices, it provides visibility and a framework for how local companies can use their employees time, skills, and other resources to improve the quality of life in our community. 

Local companies honored at the national Civic 50: AT&T, Charles Schwab, Comcast, Hogan Lovells, KPMG, S&P Global, Wells Fargo & many more
