Evaluating CSR Programs: Lessons from The Civic 50

This year marked the launch of The Civic 50, a national initiative led by the National Conference on Citizenship, Points of Light, and Bloomberg News, to comprehensively evaluate the community engagement practices of the nation's largest corporations. The goal: to recognize those companies employing the most progressive civic-engagement practices, while illuminating the path for others to follow suit.

Measuring civic engagement is not an easy task. With input from a broad range of corporate, nonprofit, academic, and government leaders, The Civic 50 ultimately created a multi-tier rubric for assessing corporate practices and policies across a range of dimensions. True Impact was privileged to provide technical expertise and the web-based infrastructure to help translate The Civic 50’s rubric into a national survey and evaluation process.
