Silicon Valley Community Foundation is excited to introduce our inaugural Corporate Responsibility Impact Awards

The five CR Impact Awards will recognize companies and individuals from around the world who demonstrate leadership in corporate responsibility. The awards ceremony will take place on Thursday, Dec. 1 at the Sofitel in Redwood City from 4:30-6:30 p.m., immediately following the Corporate Philanthropy Institute --  a day long conference open to corporate responsibility professionals.

The awards ceremony will be a celebratory gathering of more than 150 leaders from the corporate citizenship community to honor successes of the past year. The event is free -- register now!

We invite the public to submit nominations for the CR Impact Awards, to recognize the individuals and companies that are contributing outstanding work to the CR field.
