Introduction from "The Civic 50: Best Practices in Corporate Community Engagement"

Increasingly, people are expressing their support for corporations through their choice of work, purchases, and investments. Yet, there is little information available to help employees, consumers and neighbors decide which companies to support. The Civic 50, an initiative of Points of Light, in partnership with Bloomberg LP, identifies the 50 most community-minded companies in the United States each year and showcases examples of how companies use their time, skills, and other resources to improve the quality of life in their communities. This article presents highlights from the 2014 Civic 50 winners.
