The Civic 50 is coming to Colorado: Apply by July 10
Since 2012, The Civic 50, an initiative of Points of Light, has recognized the 50 most community-minded major corporations in the nation each year as determined by an annual survey developed by True Impact.
The national Civic 50 will be offered for the first time on the state level for Colorado in 2019. In partnership with CSR Solutions of Colorado, The Civic 50 Colorado will recognize 50 most community-minded small, medium, and large companies in Colorado as determined by True Impact’s adapted national Civic 50 survey that is independently administered and scored. By bench marking and celebrating best practices, it provides visibility and a framework for how local companies can use their employees’ time, skills and other resources to improve the quality of life in our community.
