On November 17, the Times Union will publish a special section on philanthropy, Capital Region Gives. Nonprofits and the businesses that support them will be the editorial focus of the special section.
As part of this promotion, local nonprofits will compete online for 10 spots to share $100,000 in granted advertising space in the Times Union.
According to the Boston College for Corporate Citizenship’s 2014 State of Corporate Citizenship study, “The majority of executives view corporate citizenship as a way to achieve strategic corporate goals. It’s clear that executives understand the value of corporate citizenship and are investing in processes and programs that deliver both business and social value.”
This year, 29 nonprofits–including the Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region!–will be eligible to win a share of the $100,000 grant. Voting to determine which nonprofit will win the grants will be held on timesunion.com starting November 17, 2016. Voting ends on December 7. The winning nonprofits will be announced on December 15.
