Today, companies around the world are celebrating the business community’s investment in creating a healthier, stronger society by taking part in the Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy’s (CECP) annual International Corporate Philanthropy Day (ICPD).
Among the companies taking part in International Corporate Philanthropy Day are past BCA 10 winners Con Edison and Travelers. Con Edison promotes its commitment to the arts in its ICPD statement saying, “Con Edison supports Queens Theatre’s diverse programming at this premier performing arts venue. To foster greater cultural awareness and appreciation, the Theatre presents and produces programs featuring international, national, and local artists.”
Travelers released its first digital community giving report in conjunction with ICPD. Marlene Ibsen, Travelers Vice President of Community Relations and CEO of the Travelers Foundation said, “While the economy continued to challenge many of the nonprofits supported by Travelers, our commitment to breaking down barriers to success and creating opportunity through education, arts, culture and community development has been steadfast.”
These are just two examples of companies that understand the value of partnering with the arts as part of their corporate philanthropy. And we are happy to join the celebration to promote the work of Travelers, Con Edison and all of the companies taking part in International Corporate Philanthropy Day.
