CUCM's corporate giving is driven by decisions employees make about their own philanthropy, individually and as a group. CUCM matches employee donations to organizations whose aims are consistent with CUCM's core values, and the spirit of Co-operative Principle #7 - Concern for Community.
Through matching, employees and CUCM have contributed $1.28 million over the past 10 years, including nearly $167,000 in 2018, to organizations that have a broad range of goals.
CUCM exposes employees to issues and causes by inviting community organizations to speak at CUCM staff meetings. And, by adding a Community Leadership & Engagement score to the company balanced scorecard, CUCM incents employees to donate time to organizations' ongoing activities and special projects.
