Case for Support
ReDefine Philanthropy: The COVID-19 pandemic escalated the urgent need for digital transformation in the nonprofit sector. Small- and medium- sized nonprofits have needed to accelerate their ability to leverage technology to continue providing services, as well as develop new strategic planning, brand awareness and digital marketing, and talent recruitment and retention in a competitive job market. As a Bay Area-based organization, digital transformation is embedded in virtually all FCF nonprofit projects. We will continue to measure success, in part, by our ability to close the technology gap for nonprofits.
ReActivate Philanthropy: Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) professionals know that Millennials want to work for companies that reflect their values such as environmental sustainability, diversity and inclusion, and income equality. As more individuals and corporations who have benefited from economic growth seek opportunities to give back to the community, Full Circle Fund is well positioned to leverage their resources and to build resilient communities. Full Circle Fund serves as a bridge for individuals and corporations to collaborate with nonprofits to meet the evolving needs of nonprofit organizations. Our skills—based programs provide impact opportunities beyond traditional ‘in-service’ days like beach clean-up or tree planting. Putting corporate values into action can help increase employee satisfaction and reduce staff turnover.
ReInvest in Philanthropy:
- Individuals are transformed philanthropically, volunteering with Grant Partners on other projects, joining as board members and/ or donating at significantly higher levels
- Nonprofit Organizations are adequately resourced to achieve their missions
- Corporate Partners leverage their financial and intellectual capital through skills-based volunteering and measure their CSR impact based on the outcomes for their nonprofit partners.
- Community is more resilient—from the closing of the empathy and resource gap to helping nonprofits provide services for all citizens to thrive in an equitable community.
