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, or provide professional advice in these areas.
- 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.
- Unique networking opportunities with other corporate funders to develop partnerships, discuss emerging issues and address real-life problems with practical tools, insights and proven action plans.
- Participation in content-rich meetings including guest speakers, presentations, research, reports, communication materials in addition to peer group discussions.
- Access to educational materials and 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, and articles of interest.
- Intranet-listserv and email access to CCIN membership to pose questions, share announcements and take pulse surveys.
