As a founding partner and co-organizer of the Charities@Work conference for nearly 20 years, America’s Charities is committed to providing employers with the latest trends, technology, and proven practices for aligning workplace giving, employee engagement, and social impact efforts with business objectives.
Through our direct work managing employee giving and engagement programs for employers – and our original Snapshot employee giving research – America’s Charities’ team understands firsthand the legwork that goes into implementing and sustaining successful employee giving and engagement programs. We are proud to help our clients increase their giving results and maximize their ROI year over year.
In addition to our work with companies, America’s Charities also has more than 130 nonprofit members who we help gain access to private and public sector campaigns across the country. And as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, we understand the tremendous impact and value that donations from workplace giving campaigns bring to nonprofits.
The work of nonprofits is at the heart of workplace giving, corporate citizenship, CSR, employee giving and engagement -- of social impact. Yet, conferences exclude from the conversation the very voice that connects all we do and all we strive for: the nonprofit voice.
If we are going to create real impact through cross-sector collaboration, employers AND their nonprofit counterparts must be included in that conversation.
After great consideration, in 2019 America’s Charities has decided to step aside from organizing Charities@Work. We owe it to our stakeholders – employers, nonprofit and board members, and donors – to make the best use of our resources and stay true to our mission. We work at the nexus of employers and nonprofits. It's a natural next step to convene organizations committed to creating greater social impact through workplace giving, corporate citizenship, CSR, and employee giving and engagement programs.
So we’re doing just that. We invite you to join us – for FREE – for a half-day on Friday, June 7th in Washington, D.C., for America’s Charities’ Collective Impact Conference.
Offering an innovative, safe space for cross-sector collaboration, the Collective Impact Conference allows participants to explore ways to engage in the business of giving back through workplace giving, employee engagement, and related areas of philanthropy.
Kicking off the day with a networking lunch, you will learn about effective ways to maximize your giving program, see and hear real examples from businesses who are incentivizing employee giving beyond the confines of their technology platforms, and explore how employee wellness programs, Employee Assistance Funds (EAFs), and other such programs help companies set standards for employee engagement and foster a healthier, more positive workplace. We invite you to share your own social impact successes and challenges throughout the half-day.
Participants attending this half-day event will have the opportunity to network with peers and will leave with tools, insights, and proven practices necessary for working together strategically and seamlessly as forces for lasting social change.
Featured guests speaking at this conference include:
- Matthew Nelson, Corporate Vice President of Corporate Responsibility, New York Life
- Heather Wright, Corporate Responsibility Director, PwC US
- Wendi Safstrom, Executive Director, SHRM Foundation
