RALEIGH, N.C. – October 25, 2023 – Connect Cause is one of the honored businesses in the inaugural Greater Triangle Civic 50, it was announced Wednesday morning. The honor represents Connect Cause’s commitment to the Triangle community and positive corporate citizenship.

“Nonprofit organizations are working tirelessly to make our communities better. As a business owner and member of the community, I want to do everything I can to help nonprofits in that mission,” said Connect Cause Founder and CEO Ahmad Eied. “For Connect Cause, helping nonprofits is at the core of everything we do. We love seeing the nonprofits we partner with multiply their impact. There is no greater feeling than when we’re able to see nonprofits quadruple their impact because of the tools and technology that we provide them. That’s all we want to do is help our local nonprofits.”

 About the Civic 50
Points of Light started the Civic 50 in 2012 on the national level to recognize the 50 most community-minded companies in the nation. The program serves as a benchmarking tool and platform for sharing best practices in the corporate citizenship sector. Activate Good as an affiliate of Points of Light is among only five organizations across the country hosting their own Civic 50.

Every Civic 50 honoree took an extensive survey administered by TrueImpact. The survey instrument consists of quantitative and multiple-choice questions that inform the scoring process. The Civic 50 is the only survey and ranking system that exclusively measures corporate community engagement.

Connect Cause was selected based on four dimensions of their community engagement program:

INVESTMENT – How extensively and strategically the company applies its resources to community engagement, including employee time and skills, cash, in-kind giving, and leadership.

INTEGRATION – How a company’s community engagement program supports business interests and integrates into business functions, or how it “does well by doing good.”

INSTITUTIONALIZATION – How the company supports community engagement through its institutional policies, systems, and incentives.

IMPACT – How a company measures the societal impact of its community engagement program
