Thank you for joining us at “The Intersection Between Technology, Corporate Giving and Community” on May 17th, 2018.

Special thanks to our sponsors: Align Impact, Boston Private Wealth Management, The California Community Foundation, and Schwab Charitable.

As promised, Jennifer Kenning of Align Impact moderated a robust panel discussion with CEOs James Citron, Victor Cho and Eric Gurna. Together they shared how the rise of technology, a socially conscious workforce and the new age corporation allows for all parties to play together in the realm of corporate giving and community impact.

They challenged you with the following "Calls to Actions" to keep the conversation alive well beyond the event:

1. Set a stretch giving goal for the year and follow through with it
2. In lieu of gifts for your birthday or your kids’, ask for gifts to causes you care about
3. Know where your consumption dollars are going, and act accordingly
