MAKING STRONG COMMUNITIES YOUR BUSINESS
We are proud to announce our participation in John Hancock’s Non-Profit Program which includes invitational entries for the 2012 BOSTON MARATHON.
Through its unconventional approach to projects, Common Impact creates opportunities for engagement that allow individuals and companies to discover their potential as community champions to solve social problems. We do this by pairing teams of corporate employees in a specific business discipline (e.g., technology, marketing, or human resources) to nonprofit organizations in need of their assistance. Projects include building a database, creating a brochure, or developing an employee performance evaluation system.
The results thus far have been outstanding, with each engagement delivering $20,000 - $40,000 in immediate value to the nonprofit client. This represents 10 times the value of equivalent time spent on traditional projects, and 4-8 times the average value of a corporate donation.
Common Impact’s achievement of a 7:1 social return on investment reflects our focus on efficiently delivering capacity-building services that create immediate and lasting value in the social sector.
