Most corporations want to give back to and invest in improving the communities where they work, but they also want a healthy bottom line. The key to having both? Be socially responsible.
Foundations want the best for their communities, and they want their investments to have exponential yield. Foundations want to know what impact they—and their grantees—are having in their communities.
