Corporate giving is a rewarding experience for both your business and the non-profits you support. At HeartPress, we see many companies provide opportunities for charities to request donations, whether that be in-kind, financial, volunteer or pro-bono services. Unfortunately, these same companies often receive an overwhelming number of monthly donation requests.
Sound familiar? As much as you want to support the wonderful causes that are reaching out, it’s not always possible. Luckily, we have compiled a list of the best practices to ensure you’re able to experience the joy of giving.
Our new series Giving Stories features first-hand accounts of individuals and businesses that give back. Whether donating time, money, items or services, those featured in Giving Stories are making a difference in the world around us and deserve to be celebrated!

Employees no longer see workplace volunteering as desirable, but as an expectation. The scope of causes employees support and the ways they want to give back are widening, from speaking out on Social Media to volunteering time on the weekend, to offering a pro-bono service to organizing team fundraising events. So too, must your business create an employee volunteer program to meet the changing needs of today’s modern workforce.
