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. NCG is proud to once again be a Partner Sponsor for this inspiring breakfast event honoring the Top Bay Area Corporate Philanthropists including many NCG members. 

The Corporate Philanthropy Awards & Summit support our annual Corporate Philanthropy Institute coming up this fall! Stay tuned!

Panel Discussion: Bridging the Divide

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.
