Building on its well-established government relations practice, Capalino+Company launched its Corporate Social Responsibility Group to assist companies doing business in New York City in actively giving back their time, talent and resources to the communities in which they operate. Creating a Corporate Social Responsibility agenda focused on economic and community development, institutional effectiveness, and sustainable ecosystems is a proven means for boosting employee skills and morale while strengthening connections to consumers and clients.
Our process is straightforward and thorough. We assess your existing offerings by conducting interviews with staff and consultants and reviewing corporate literature and annual reports. Next, we work with your team to conceptualize or hone the program design by analyzing the unique opportunities and challenges that face your firm. Finally, we help you articulate the goals for your Corporate Social Responsibility initiative.
After finalizing the program design with your organization’s input, we develop an implementation plan and track its progress in accordance with your company’s specific metrics for success, such as increased employee engagement and increased charitable donations.
Corporate Social Responsibility Services
Effective Grant-Making: By understanding the not-for-profit landscape and New York’s government contracting process, we work with clients to identify high quality nonprofit organizations where their support can be used most effectively and leverage the greatest impact. We help clients establish a transparent and comprehensive grant review process that will direct funds toward projects that produce results.
Donation Strategies: We help clients identify reputable and worthy organizations for significant donations of products and equipment. At times, these donations may present an opportunity to host community events and we work to ensure that clients are recognized for their generosity and aid.
Employee Expertise: Pro-bono work is a great way to help nonprofit organizations while providing employees with an opportunity to give back and share their skills. We help match employees’ expertise in accounting, law, technology or marketing with a nonprofit partner that may need assistance on a project or pro-bono basis. Similarly, we believe that mentoring programs can provide a valuable means for employee engagement with youth and students.
Comprehensive Volunteer Service + Planning: We provide step by step guidance and well designed projects for large scale volunteer efforts for clients’ employees as well as their families and friends. Projects can involve children, adults, and or seniors and can span a variety of areas including clean up, painting and beautification, tutoring, mentoring, and supporting the environment.
Cultivating Opportunities for Sponsorships, Co-ventures + Public-Private Partnerships: With significant knowledge of city government and its assets, we facilitate corporate partnerships with City agencies to support public facilities. These partnerships bring needed revenue to these facilities and offer the opportunity for brands to be exposed to millions of NYC residents.
