We know that giving back and volunteering together unites people around a common purpose, giving them the opportunity to connect at the deepest levels of human meaning. This is true for us as individuals, and it’s true for us when we come together in community, whether that’s in our lives as private and public citizens, or in our workplace.

Recipe for Failure: A Corporate Volunteer Program Without the Right Technology

Ryan Scott

A recent report by America’s Charities (an exclusive partner of my company, Causecast) puts to rest any doubts about the link between employee volunteering and employee engagement.

Revolutionizing Community Service Ideas Around Digital and Financial Literacy

Ryan Scott

The Great Recession delivered a body blow to our country’s financial equilibrium, and only after years of painfully slow recovery have housing prices begun to stabilize and the unemployment rate steadily fallen. But while the economic crisis has abated, it remains a devastating morass for many, especially young adults, ethnic and racial minorities, and lower income families.
