It's that time of year again when the San Francisco Business Times honors the generosity of corporate philanthropists by hosting an awards presentation that unveils the ranks of companies who gave the most cash to Bay Area causes.

This inspiring breakfast event will honor the Top Bay Area Corporate Philanthropists, and share the stories of those who do it best. Philanthropy leaders will discuss how corporations use their philanthropy to bring about change and build stronger communities, while aligning social responsibility with company performance and brand. 

NCG's CEO Ellen LaPointe will be presenting the Collective Impact Award in Education to Bayer & California State University East Bay & Wareham Development on stage as part of the Beyond the Check Awards.

Join Us To:

  • Honor local corporate philanthropists and NCG member honorees
  • Learn about the impact corporate philanthropy has on our area
  • Hear from local executives during the panel discussion
  • Learn more during the Corporate Philanthropy Workshop

Executive Panel

Following the awards presentation a distinguished executive panel will share their views on balancing social responsibility with bottom line accountability, and explain how they make their giving decisions.
