The Value of Charitable Engagement

Within the next ten years millennials will be the majority in the workforce.  What we know from research is that, like with baby boomers, there is a need among millennials to feel that they make a difference and, even more so than their predecessors, that their companies align with their philosophies.

 

Turns out, what’s good for your bottom line is also good for nonprofits.  Companies can build engagement through participation in shared passions.  From forming a team to run in the Rock and Roll marathon, to hosting a fundraiser for a favorite charity or participating in a matching gift program, employees increasingly choose employers not only for the pay and career advancement, but for the alignment with their core philosophies as well.

 

The V Foundation has its roots in corporate activism and employer/employee collaboration.  When Jim Valvano was diagnosed with cancer his employer, ESPN, partnered with him to raise money and awareness.  That was 24 years ago but the message is as strong today at ESPN as well as in the hearts and minds of the V’s devoted donor base.
