The Civic 50 survey will open on Dec. 15, 2020, and we invite you to join us for a webinar that same day to hear more about the survey and the changes we've made for 2021.

The Civic 50, an initiative of Points of Light, recognizes the 50 most community-minded companies in the nation each year as determined by an annual survey administered by True Impact. Since it was launched in 2012, the program has served as benchmarking tool and platform for sharing best practices in the corporate citizenship sector. The survey is based on Points of Light’s Corporate Civic Engagement Framework that provides a roadmap for companies committed to leveraging their time, talent, and resources to drive social impact in their business and communities. The Civic 50 honorees are selected based on the four dimensions of this framework: 

  • INVESTMENT: How the company strategically invests its resources in community engagement and social impact, including employee time and skills, cash, in-kind giving and public leadership. 
  • INTEGRATION: How the company integrates its community engagement and social impact programs throughout its business functions and interests (i.e., “does well by doing good”). 
  • INSTITUTIONALIZATION: How the company institutionalizes its community engagement and social impact programs through organizational policies, systems, and incentives.
  • IMPACT: How the company measures the social and business impact outcomes of its community engagement and social impact programs.

Points of Light will host a webinar on Dec. 15 at 3 p.m. EDT to discuss the addition of several new survey questions for 2021 that go deeper on issues of justice, equity, diversity and inclusion.

Register now to attend the webinar!
