As leaders in the field of corporate contributions, we influence by example. That requires keeping up not only with current issues and trends, but with best practices and best programs. We create initiatives that advance community building while enriching our companies’ profiles and social activism portfolios. Recent discussions have covered:

  • Employee engagement
  • Increasing funding and access to higher education
  • Improving K-12 education

This council includes representatives from some of the best-known and best-run companies in the United States and around the world. Council members also have the opportunity to visit the communities, campuses, and nonprofit organizations that benefit from their grant-making.

The power of peer learning

Enduring relationships with trusted peers are the core of the council experience. Enhanced by our global, enterprise-wide reach, these relationships span the world and extend the value of council membership. Confidential peer dialogue provides you with a broader perspective and shared experiences, as well as access to specific knowledge and best practices.
