Join us, for the second workshop in our Measure What Matters series “Impact Giving: Beyond Writing a Check” on Thursday, June 18th at VSECU, located at 1 Bailey Ave in Montpelier, VT.
This workshop will explore strategies and case studies to guide companies on how to think about philanthropy differently, cultivate a culture of philanthropy that engages employees and the community, and use strategic giving as a way to implement and communicate your business’ purpose. Presenters will share a variety of different examples of how they have developed and implemented philanthropic programs and initiatives at their businesses. Attendees will learn from business and non-profit leaders who will present a breadth of theory and real world examples, equipping attendees with ready-to-use tools for developing a culture of philanthropy at their companies.
VBSR’s Measure What Matters workshop series is your opportunity to learn from some of the best companies in New England, see how you measure up against industry leaders, and find new ways to improve your business operations. Workshop attendees will leave with tools for change and an expanded network of professionals who believe in business as a power for good! Modeled after the B-Corp Impact Assessment, this new series will help members to better support their communities, reduce the impact of their operations on the environment and to create the best workplace for their employees.
