The Corporate Community Investment Network (CCIN) is comprised of professionals whose primary responsibility is to manage community investment (CI) programs in a for-profit business setting. The role of CCIN is to provide a confidential forum to share and discuss best and worst practices, engage in peer networking, encourage personal development and share resources to enhance the CI profession.
- Candidates must be employed by a for-profit company, perform a CI role and have influence over a CI budget.
- The budget must include an allocation by the company directed to corporate grants, employee volunteerism, employee matching gifts, or in-kind products or services.
- CCIN is not a forum for fundraising, and is closed to non-profit organizations.
- Membership is by invitation and requires a signed confidentiality agreement.
- The unique opportunity to engage with other corporate funders to develop relationships, discuss emerging issues and address real-life problems with practical tools, insights and proven action plans.
- Participate in content-rich meetings that include member presentations, research, reports, articles, books and online resources.
- Take part in candid peer group discussions focused on what’s working (kudos) and what’s not (qualms).
- Invitations to training sessions provided by Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship to enhance both personal and company performance.
- Web access to document sharing, best practices, manuals, contracts, applications, reporting requirements, articles of interest and more.
