Corporate Leadership through Employee Service

 

BoardSource recognizes the powerful opportunity for corporate professionals to support nonprofit organizations by sharing their talents and expertise through nonprofit board service.

That’s why we’re proud to partner with leading companies to design, implement, and support nonprofit board service programs within their companies. Recent research from the Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy indicates that nonprofit board service is one of the fastest growing categories of employee service programming, with 53 percent of companies now reporting that they have nonprofit board service programs for their employees.

But nonprofit board service programs within companies are not one-size-fits-all. BoardSource works with corporate leaders to understand your goals and help you build and implement a program that will position you and your employees for success.
