The partnership will be mutually beneficial in that YourCause and Entrepreneurs Foundation intend to work together to offer companies a solution that implement community programs, which meet corporate objectives and serve social needs. CSRconnect will become an option for Entrepreneurs Foundation to recommend as a tool for those clients seeking CSR solutions in the employee engagement arena.
“We are excited about our recently formed partnership with YourCause,” said Dipti Pratt, Marketing Director at Entrepreneurs Foundation. “It offers our network of companies an opportunity to further their ongoing community initiatives and community impact.”
Entrepreneurs Foundation understands the importance in developing a cohesive philanthropic culture in companies and their employees. YourCause values those efforts and understands the most important factor is to create simple, efficient corporate social responsibility programs. Together, they will continually inform, expand and deliver corporate community impact nationally and worldwide.
“Entrepreneurs Foundation is already a major resource for expertise and best practices within the CSR space,” said Matthew Combs, CEO of YourCause, LLC. “Partnering with them only helps us inch closer to our ultimate goal – developing global good by enabling individuals to support their causes through innovative technology.”
Entrepreneurs Foundation (EF) is a non-profit public charity on a mission to encourage, empower and enhance corporate philanthropy and corporate community involvement. EF encourages companies to be philanthropic by providing guidance and expertise to companies that haven’t yet adopted a community or philanthropy program; empowers companies to be philanthropic by providing open sourced resources, tools and best practices and on-line and in-person forums to make it easy for companies to learn on their own or from each other; and EF enhances corporate philanthropy by providing direct services to companies who have programs in place but need strategic or tactical support to make their programs better. EF has worked with 980 companies worldwide to help them develop their corporate citizenship programs.
