Who is a Community Social Capitalist?

A Community Social Capitalist is a volunteer who impacts the lives of others by leveraging their personal and professional network to make a difference.  Recipients may have mobilized a group to volunteer, or organized an event in their neighborhood, or brought a diverse group to work together on a common issue.  Honorees personify the spirit of strengthening communities through civic engagement.

Some Social Capitalists are company leaders who are fostering an ethic of civic engagement in their company or are helping to build the capacity of important community-based organizations; some are co-workers who are inspiring their peers to give their time to help the community; and some are non-profit leaders nominated by a company for their exemplary community work. 

Too often, these people are not recognized for their powerful acts of community-building. SCI seeks to change that!
