"Don’t manage, lead change before you have to."
Each year on the fourth Monday in February, the giving community observes International Corporate Philanthropy Day (ICPD) to inspire businesses around the world to give back and recognize the power of business for good.
We encourage everyone to do their part to make philanthropy an everyday party of their corporate environments, and realize that an integral part of a successful business is not only doing well, but doing good. Check out today’s Huffington Post article that talks about how companies can truly be their best by sparking social change starting at the executive level.
Giving is at the heart of our brand, and today we want to thank you, our Charitybuzz community, for helping us give back to nonprofits 365 days a year! Without your generous support, we would not be able to celebrate raising over $60 million for charities since our inception in 2005.
Keep up the good work! We simply couldn’t do it without you!
