Engaging Employees in Corporate Philanthropy

Corporate grantmakers are trying to solve the puzzle of engaging employees in their organization’s philanthropy program while also supporting their workforce’s diverse interests and causes. Certainly, establishing workplace giving and volunteering programs can help your organization have an even deeper social impact, but how do you also honor individual interests and truly engage employees with the organization, each other, and the community?

We were excited to moderate a dynamic conversation with our client, Jackie Johnson of UWorld, a global leader in test preparation with a strong commitment to corporate social responsibility and employee engagement. 

She shared how they:

  • Shaped their workplace giving program to further their corporate philanthropy and employee interests 

  • Connected their employees to volunteer opportunities with your grant recipients

  • The rules and regulations considered when building their program

  • How they leveraged payroll giving, employer matching, and volunteer time off to increase employee engagement 

Additionally, she detailed how our employee giving and volunteering platform, Bright Funds, made it easier for their employees to connect to the causes that mean the most to them.
