Corporate community investment wrapped up. Commentary. Latest resources. And key developments among your peers.

From the CEO

I've been particularly aware of discussions around innovation over the past month. Innovation in giving models. Innovation in funding relations. Innovation in charity work.

From where I stand, these quickly become one and the same. Something we're very proud of at Good2Give is ensuring our organisation is agile, that our giving solutions evolve with digital advancements, and our clients engage with charities in increasingly immersive ways. 

As part of this, we're very pleased to launch our new Company Resource Hub that gives companies access to a range of professionally designed workplace giving promotional assets. By offering these to corporate clients for free, we're looking to maximise charitable impact and nurture vibrant cultures of giving.
