About the Awards
The Corporate Citizenship Awards honor corporate contributions (money and time) that have meaningfully improved communities, be they local, national or global. Winners for the 2017 program have been selected in 10 categories:

  • Culture and Arts
  • Education (K-12)
  • Education (Higher Ed)
  • Environment
  • Sustainability
  • Community/Economic Development
  • Health/Social Sciences
  • Disaster Relief
  • Children
  • Civic and Public Affairs

Programs also have been separated based on whether they are from small, medium or large companies.

There was no charge to enter nor participate. Top corporate executives, their teams who lead citizenship efforts and the charities/not-for-profits with whom they partner have been invited to celebrate together at an event in New York City in January 2017.

Benefits of participation include your ability to:

  • Recognize key employees involved in such initiatives
