Nelson announced that it has been ranked 30 out of 100 on the San Francisco Times’ 2018 Bay Area Corporate Philanthropists List which was published in a San Francisco Business Times’ supplement on July 27, 2018.
The list recognized for-profit companies and non-profit health care organizations that made cash giving contributions to charitable organizations in the counties of San Francisco, San Mateo, Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, Santa Clara, Solano, and Sonoma. Almost $350 billion were raised for charities in these counties by the top 100 corporate philanthropists on this list.
The staffing and recruiting company was named one of 37 companies among the top 100 that gave more than $1 million and ranked number 4 in cash giving per local employee by giving $6,751 per Nelson team member.
Nelson recently announced the launch of their beCAUSE philanthropy program, a corporate philanthropy program that offers a variety of options for non-profit organizations interested in obtaining support. The beCAUSE program was designed to continue Nelson’s long history of giving back to the community.
“Corporate social responsibility may be a corporate buzzword right now, but that’s for a good reason. With low unemployment rates throughout the Bay Area, employers are striving to make work meaningful for their employees and corporate philanthropy programs are one effective way to do that,” says Madigan. “We are proud to stand alongside companies that share our passion for bettering the communities we share, for another year in a row.”
