Connecting Employees to Causes They Care About

What if companies could align, organize, and administer employee-led philanthropic initiatives — like volunteering for their favorite charity — and let employees engage in the way they already do: by connecting, suggesting, linking, liking, and inviting their friends and colleagues?

CSR Strategy

UWSD has long partnered with local companies on workplace giving, employee volunteerism, and other social purpose activities.
A comprehensive CSR strategy provides businesses with an advantage in the talent war, giving young employees more power to engage with social issues and connect with changemakers and like-minded colleagues.

It makes employee engagement dramatically easier, more efficient, and more effective.

It helps companies streamline, modernize, and measure existing philanthropic programs while increasing retention and satisfaction among its workforce.

Offerings include:

Traditional volunteerism

  • Day of service
  • Group projects
  • Team building

Virtual volunteerism

  • Projects completed remotely and during “off-hours”
  • Put your skills to work outside of the typical 9-to-5

Skills-based volunteering

Board service training and matching

  • Training program for corporate employees to become effective nonprofit board members
  • Matching services to help employees identify and connect with nonprofits aligned with their area of interest or in need of specific expertise
