Corporate and Business Partnerships

Corporate and business communities represent one of the most powerful forces for change in our nation. Collectively, corporations and their employees contribute millions of hours of needed time and energy. They invest their expertise and financial resources to strengthen communities and solve critical social problems every day.

In partnership with HandsOn Network, and our network of Action Centers, nonprofit and government organizations, these companies help bring the scale, momentum and impact needed to transform the nation through volunteering and civic engagement.

Our corporate partners range from service companies, to retailers and technology innovation companies to manufacturers—and all have in common a commitment to volunteering, civic responsibility and active engagement in local, national and global communities.

This week’s featured corporate partners are GOOD Magazine and the four presenting sponsors of the National Conference on Service and Volunteering.
