May 14, 2024 /3BL/ - Points of Light, a nonpartisan, global nonprofit organization that inspires, equips and mobilizes millions of people to take action that changes the world, today announced The Civic 50 honorees of 2024. Since 2012, The Civic 50 program has recognized the 50 most community-minded companies in the nation and has become the preeminent corporate social impact recognition program.

For the twelfth year, the top 50 companies recognized are leading the way in employee volunteering and community investment. Combined, the companies have engaged more than 450,000 employees to volunteer more than 6.5 million hours in their communities. In external volunteering, that’s twice the average for U.S. companies not in The Civic 50 (40% compared to 20%) [1].

In a time when the formal volunteering rate in the U.S. dropped 7 percentage points and the U.S. surgeon general has declared a loneliness epidemic, increasing the rate of individuals volunteering is critical not only to the health of communities but also individuals’ social connectedness and mental well-being. Ninety percent of this year’s honoree companies have a formal strategy to leverage community engagement to promote health and wellbeing among employees in coordination with their HR department.

Additionally, companies recognized through The Civic 50 contribute over five times the cash and in-kind donations to charitable causes compared to the average U.S. company, as a percentage of revenue (.69% versus .12%) [2]. Together, these leading organizations have donated more than $1.5 billion in financial resources and over $2.6 billion in in-kind goods and services to support charitable causes.

“Companies play a vital role in communities by creating opportunities to strengthen and connect their community members,” said Jennifer Sirangelo, president and CEO, Points of Light. “The Civic 50 honorees demonstrate the many ways business can integrate social impact work throughout their business practices and employee engagement. They show us how to create vibrant, thriving communities. Congratulations to all the 2024 honorees.”
