Corporate Engagement


Join hundreds of companies by committing to make a difference in the communities in which you live, work, and play through volunteerism. If you’re looking to launch your company’s first community service event or are a seasoned CSR professional, we have the experience, connections, and mission to guide you every step of the way so your organization’s volunteering experience goes smoothly, is engaging and meaningful for participants, and makes a difference in the community. Below you will find our three main ways we work with our corporate partners in Greater Boston and beyond!

Corporate Engagement during COVID-19

In response to COVID-19, our team has developed new ways for current and new corporate partners to engage with Boston Cares and the local community. This year, in September and October alone our team supported the mobilization of more than 1,400 corporate volunteers to support the ongoing needs of nonprofits and schools in Greater Boston. If you would like more information about the different opportunities for your company to engage during this time please reach out to Kacey Sanfilippo to set up a call at ksanfilippo@bostoncares.org.

Holiday Volunteering in 2020

Does your company want to make an impact on a nonprofit or school in Boston this holiday season? Even though holiday volunteering looks different as we approach the end of 2020 there are still many ways your group can volunteer together, safely and effectively, in the communities where employees work and live.

For more information about how our team at Boston Cares can support your holiday volunteering initatives this year check out our Holiday Volunteering Opportunities.

Hands On Projects

We will source a range of opportunities that meet your specific needs. Projects can take place during the week or weekend, on a one- time basis or more frequently, and may include employees’ families, if desired. Based on your input, our team will plan the day(s), order supplies, handle set-up and logistics, and prep any employees who wish to serve as volunteer team captains. On the day of service we are on site to support your volunteers and make sure your engagement runs smoothly.

Portable Projects

In collaboration with our nonprofit partners, our Portable Projects are developed to serve a specific and unique unmet need. All portable projects include creative and team building components that allow volunteers to serve together to create tangible and impactful goods for a designated beneficiary.

Virtual Projects

Developed in collaboration with our nonprofit partners, virtual projects are facilitated and run in many forms to best serve the agency partner and population they serve. Our team will source project options depending in your company's desired impact areas and CSR goals and can customize opportunities based on group size, desired type of projects, and more. Based on your input, our team will plan the virtual service day(s), order any supplies, handle set-up and logistics of video platforms, and prep any employees who wish to serve as virtual volunteer team captains. On the day of service we are on call to support your volunteers and make sure your engagement runs smoothly.
