  • 5 Ways To Give Thanks To Employees

    5 Ways To Give Thanks To Employees for Their CSR Participation in 2020  2020 has been a year that many of us would like to put behind us. It’s tested our CSR programs, our optimism, and our fortitude.  But before we put 2020 behind us, there is also so much good we need to do in recognizing our employees for all their CSR efforts and the tremendous impact they have made. It's true, most of our plans were upended this year, yet the stories and feedback we have heard of community outreach, rapid response, and flexibility in giving, engagement and the disbursement of funds, have been nothing short of heroic.  The end of the year is a perfect time for giving back, and like many organizations, we are getting ready for Giving Tuesday on December 1st. As we plan these outreach programs, it’s also a wonderful time to thank others for all the hard work they’ve done in the last 12 months through virtually volunteering or donating money to charities. As you plan your annual company giving strategy for 2021, make sure you’re showing gratitude to all of those employees who were instrumental in helping make the efforts this year a success. Depending on your time or budget allotment, initiatives can be both large and small. Take the time to celebrate you and your team with some of these impactful ideas. When it comes to showing employees end-of-year appreciation, what’s your approach? Try this:Tweet This!

  • Navigating the Corporate Philanthropy Regulatory Compliance Landscape

    Navigating the Regulatory Compliance Landscape in Corporate Philanthropy There is a dizzying array of regulations in corporate philanthropy. How do you ensure you are compliant and avoid the risks that can diminish your philanthropy impact? Over the years, corporate philanthropy has evolved from a series of disconnected individual acts to a vital strategic component of a company’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) program… and has attracted increased regulatory scrutiny of the recipients of corporate largesse for links to international money laundering, organized crime, terrorism financing, financial mismanagement, fraud, and related issues. Therefore, to avoid reputational risk and deeper legal/tax/financial infringements, companies must ensure full regulatory compliance and due diligence before the disbursement of funds or other forms of corporate giving, and can do so with technology-enabled vetting solutions. Vetting allows organizations to review nonprofit organizations that receive tax exemptions from the Internal Revenue Service and file an annual report, called a 990, which guides how they operate and an overview of their program spending.
