NJCPN: The Evolution and Future of Corporate Volunteerism

In April, we celebrate Global Volunteer Month, and for corporate volunteer programs this represents a wonderful opportunity to engage your employees through volunteerism. Over the past three years, there has been a whirlwind of change around these volunteer programs, moving away from in-person to virtual volunteer events, and a rethinking by many companies about how these programs now work with remote employees. 

Join your fellow corporate CNJG members for an online discussion (via Zoom) about your volunteer programs; how they’ve changed, and how they continue to evolve as we emerge from the pandemic. We will hear from Rowena Madden from the Governor’s Office on Service and Volunteerism on a state-level view of volunteerism, and then we will have a dedicated time to hear from your corporate peers from across the state on their programs, and a time for you to share what your company is doing. We encourage every attendee to participate in this discussion. You may wish to share your answers to these questions or others that come up in the conversation: 

  • Does your corporate giving align with volunteerism efforts? 
  • How are volunteers/volunteer programs part of your grantmaking?
  • Does your company observe “Global Volunteer Month”?
  • How are you leveraging skills-based volunteerism?
  • How do you recognize your volunteers?
  • Do you measure and track volunteerism? If so, what program do you use? For what purposes?
  • Does your company support ways for employees to serve on nonprofit boards?
  • Are your volunteer programs expanding this year?
  • What system(s) do you use to track volunteers?

Cost: Free for CNJG Members; $50 for Non Member Grantmakers
This program is only open to staff and trustees from grantmaking organizations.
