About the Program
Launched in 2012, The Civic 50 is a national initiative to survey and rank S&P 500 corporations on how they engage with the communities they serve and institutionalize these practices in their corporate culture. Specifically, The Civic 50 recognizes companies that commit their time, talent, and resources to empower and improve local communities.
The survey was developed by the nation’s definitive experts on civic engagement, the National Conference on Citizenship and Points of Light. Bloomberg News, one of corporate America’s most respected sources of business and financial information, is the media partner in this endeavor.
The Civic 50 Mission: Measure, promote, and track how businesses are institutionalizing civic engagement as part of their corporate culture.
The Civic 50 Values:
--The business sector plays a critical role in engaging and empowering communities.
--Working in partnership with government, nonprofits and individuals, corporate leaders should focus their civic engagement programs (CEP) on solving community problems by effectively contributing the expertise and resources of their businesses and employees.
--A corporate culture of civic engagement is institutionalized when a business aligns its CEP strategy with its underlying business competencies.
