Corporate philanthropy and community involvement efforts are no longer just about grants or sponsorships or employee engagement or volunteerism. To keep up with the times, a company must align its philanthropy with core business competencies, utilize all of its available resources for social change, and create meaningful and fully integrated opportunities to engage employees and communities.

Join us for lunch as guest speaker Carmen Perez, Director of Evaluation and Data Insights at CECP, discusses new and emerging trends identified in Giving in Numbers: 2015 Edition, including purpose-driven performance, internal and external social entrepreneurship, and the undisputed rise of measurement and evaluation. She'll lead a discussion on how the field can capture and report on more of the "good beyond giving" activities.
