Compliments of Core Thought 

Do You Ever Wonder…?

  • How can I start something meaningful in the community for our company and employees with basically no budget? What are the best ways to start?
  • How have other companies received greater internal support and buy-in across departments for their community engagement and CSR programs?
  • What and how should we measure our community activities to demonstrate ROI to the C-Suite? Can we really “Do Good AND Do Well?”
  • What are the basic systems we need to run effective CSR and community engagement programs?
  • What are the best ways to move from checkbook philanthropy to more meaningful engagement with nonprofits that more fully involve our employees, demonstrate our values, and leverage our core competencies?
  • Can we really support nonprofits when staying afloat ourselves is tough right now? We are bombarded by nonprofits asking for dollars – what are other effective ways we can support charities?
  • How do we raise our visibility and reputation in the community by being active with a cause? What have other companies found to be the best ways to communicate their CSR and social good story – internally, to customers, and the community?

If you’ve ever wondered about the answers to ANY of these or other important questions about the best, most cost effective but impactful ways to give back and make a difference, you DEFINITELY don’t want to miss the 2014 Strategy for Good Global Summit virtual conference and this amazing opportunity to learn the insider secrets of other companies from the comfort of your own office.


Companies should not have a singular view of profitability. There needs to be a balance between commerce and social responsibility… The companies that are authentic about it will wind up as the companies that make more money.

”Howard ”CEO

We started worthy cause marketing as a way to sell our wine because we didn’t have money to do anything else. We couldn’t afford to put ads in the newspaper, magazines, radio, television. But [it worked] so we kept it that way as time went on and it’s still being done that way.

I think the biggest benefit to Aveda from our community involvement to date has been internal, with our employees and our network of spas, as they hear the stories about all the things we are doing. It helps with employee recruitment: ‘Everybody wants to work for Aveda.’ People are really proud to be employees at Aveda because they know we are doing such great stuff. Employee retention is also great. People see it in their promotion and bonus opportunities. If they are serving the mission of the company, that’s recognized as a good thing. So it’s a very positive reinforcement.

Strategy for Good will give you the tools, expertise, and best practice examples you need to envision, design and effectively manage your community initiatives locally and globally.

Part I provides an overview of strategic business giving. You’ll learn how it has evolved from an “alms for the poor” mindset to today’s focus on strategic alliances with community partners for mutual benefit. Along the way we debunk myths about business giving and look at the range of business models for community involvement. You’ll learn the four powerful ways your company will benefit from strategic community involvement.

Part II guides you step by step through the exciting process of developing your own “Strategy for Good.” Examples from dozens of companies with proven, successful community giving programs are included to guide and inspire you.

Part III offers a smorgasbord of ways to give. Companies have so much more to offer than cash. This section covers the four main categories of resources businesses can leverage in partnership with the community. These are funds, in-kind contributions, people’s time and skills, and commerce arrangements.
