The private sector in our region provides significant support to nonprofits through corporate social investments. But what is the return on investment of this financial support, and how can business and industry maximize it for internal and community purposes?

This special program of the Greenville Partnership for Philanthropy will feature Steve Rochlin, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of IO Sustainability, and will consider the voluntary contributions that companies make to support the well-being of communities, individuals, and environmental systems and how to do them well. The session will:

  • Define Social Investment
  • Look at the potential ROI of Social Investment
  • Discuss the how-tos of well-executed Social Investments
  • Review the Social Investment Value Creating Roadmap
  • Consider pitfalls that can undermine SI programs
