Corporate Projects

Looking for opportunities to engage your employees in volunteerism?

We’re here to make it happen, and make it easy for you. Nonprofits depend on corporate support to provide volunteers, board members, and off-set their limited budgets. Studies suggest that one of the top 10 drivers of employee engagement is the company’s reputation for social responsibility.

CVNL Volunteer Marin and Napa guide businesses through the often unfamiliar territory of volunteer service project planning. Drawing on our vast network of agency partnerships and planning expertise, we design ongoing volunteer programs or one-time events, specifically tailored to the needs and interests of your company. Volunteer Marin and Napa create, prepare, coordinate, and execute all aspects of your planned projects while working with your staff to help recruit, motivate and communicate with your volunteers. The collaboration between CVNL and your company ensures that each project meets a community need and reflects your corporate culture and values.
