Relations and Workplace Philanthropy Programs
  • A recent survey of 1,000 adults found that even
    in a poor economy, consumers expect companies to
    support philanthropy.
  • More that half the respondents said companies
    should maintain their levels of financial support
    for charitable causes and 26 thought companies
    should give more.
  • The research suggests that consumers would show
    less loyalty to companies that curtail giving as
    the economic crisis worsens.

    employees make through workplace giving programs.
  • There is increased use of technology for employee

Determining the right model for your CU
Leveraging Your Credit Unions Community
Relations and Workplace Philanthropy Programs
  • Here are a few considerations . . .
  • Have you inventoried your current efforts and
    determined the level and type of resources you
    expend on all community relations activities?
    (corporate giving, employee volunteerism, etc.)
  • Do you want to engage your employees and members?
  • Do you want to better leverage your efforts and
    resources to have more impact?
  • Are your goals strategically aligned with your
    business interests? (enlightened self-interest)
  • How can you differentiate yourself in a manner
    that builds reputation equity? (halo effect)
  • Are you wanting to connect to the broader CU
    industry in a manner that shows CSR leadership?
  • Have you considered a more strategic model?

39
When considering a more strategic approach
Leveraging Your Credit Unions Community
Relations and Workplace Philanthropy Programs
  • Devise a meaningful strategic philanthropy and
    institutional citizenship program that leverages
    your resources including intellectual capital.
  • Dont spread yourself too thin find focus, go
    deep.
  • Consider your employees and members interests.
  • Sometimes those are not in total sync with your
    current strategy.
  • Consider providing these key stakeholders with
    meaningful options such as workplace giving,
    volunteer time, etc.
  • Consider industry challenges and how you can play
    a role in addressing those challenges through
    strategic philanthropy and corporate citizenship.
  • Give serious consideration to a leadership role
    in a major CU industry initiative such as REAL
    Solutions and/or CIF.
