The organization will officially kick off on November 18 in Denver and will honor its first 100 companies with Founding Member status.
B:CIVIC strives to unite and empower businesses to make a positive collective impact on Colorado communities. It offers year-round professional development events, access to resources that help guide corporate social responsibility and philanthropy efforts, increased visibility in the business sector’s community programs, and peer connections with other like-minded local leaders.
“We are thrilled to offer the support, education and collaborative opportunities to help Colorado businesses make a real difference in our local communities,” said Susan Hyatt, B:CIVIC Executive Director. “Studies have found time and time again that consumers value and buy from businesses that show civic responsibility. B:CIVIC offers an amazing opportunity for Colorado companies to demonstrate their values and commitment to working together for the betterment of Colorado communities.”
B:CIVIC is the spin-off organization of the 2% Club, which was created 20 years ago for CEOs to increase effective corporate giving in the community. B:CIVIC welcomes employees of any level and promotes the full range of ways businesses can be engaged in the community - not just grantmaking. Membership fees are based on the number of Colorado employees a company has and range from $250 to $2500 per year.
