Businesses play an important role in our economy as well as in our society and communities. We want to celebrate businesses that give back and act as responsible corporate citizens by shining a spotlight on approaches to tackling social problems. Some of these approaches include employee giving programs, cause marketing, community engagement and service, public-private partnerships and more.

To better understand the relationship among business, volunteering and the bottom line, the Case Foundation and HandsOn Network commissioned LBG Associates to explore how—and to what degree—corporate volunteerism positively impacts communities, employees and companies.
