About This Event

Designed for corporate leaders and young professionals interested in cross-collaboration, corporate philanthropy, social responsibility, employee engagement, and nonprofit impact, this annual event provides solutions and insights on key trends and strategies shaping the future of employee engagement and workplace giving.  

During the 2014 breakfast and panel discussion, we revealed findings from America's Charities' Snapshot 2014, a new research report on "Driving Social Impact Through Corporate Giving and Employee Engagement."   This research follows the 2013 study, "Snapshot: Trends and Strategies to Engage Employees in Greater Giving."  Corporate and nonprofit industry experts discussed the findings from this research and examined the connection between corporate giving, employee engagement and investing in charitable performance and impact.
