Grow our network of skills-based volunteers
Engage and inspire employees by inviting them to partner with small business entrepreneurs, and share their skills in marketing, finance, or law. When your employees share skills with an entrepreneur, they connect with possibility, mutual growth, partnership, and skill exchange.
We partner with volunteers across legal, finance, and marketing services to offer assistance and expertise to thousands of entrepreneurs every year. But to do more, we need your company’s support. Your donation will support our mission to advance equity and inclusion in entrepreneurship.
Purchase goods and services from the small business community. We partner with entrepreneurs to bring corporate gifting, workshops and masterclasses, catering opportunities, and more to your company. Your support helps ensure a generation of small businesses survive and thrive.
Benefits of Corporate Volunteering
Corporate Social Responsibility Strategies
Our CSR programs add value to your diversity and inclusion initiatives by connecting your organization and employees to thousands of entrepreneurs who help create sustainable cities nationwide.
Small businesses are the heartbeat of communities and enclaves across the country. When your skilled staff provides marketing tips, financial planning advice, or pro bono legal services, you help BIPOC entrepreneurs, women, LGBTQIA+ entrepreneurs, immigrants and other small businesses grow and directly impact their neighborhoods and those who rely on the jobs, services, and products they supply.
Our volunteer programs position your corporate talent to guide, mentor, and nurture entrepreneurs who rely on their expertise. Connections like this encourage your team members to embrace their leadership skills and feel empowered in using their skills for good.
Increase Employee Engagement
Your employees already have a sense of purpose, but ensuring that your team has a continued valued emotional connection to their work is crucial. Focus on increasing staff engagement, productivity, and team morale.
Position your company in the best light and attract positive media attention when you engage in community activities that support local small businesses.
Attract new employees and qualified talent seeking to work with companies that give back and support issues and communities that are important to them.
