Connect4Change: For Companies

Connect4Change (C4C) is a project development and management service designed to benefit the Capital District's leading companies and community nonprofit partners by maximizing the impact of one-day and short-term employee volunteer service in the community.

C4C’s Project Leaders work with area nonprofits to scope projects that match the energy and interests of your company with the needs of the community. C4C Project Leaders are on site for the duration of each project to ensure the satisfaction of all participants.
Whatever your company’s size or needs, C4C provides project management services to create meaningful and memorable employee volunteer experiences and maximize your company’s community impact.

Your company selects the type of service project, location, and timing that best meets your team’s needs, and C4C Project Leaders manage the rest!

Benefits of Corporate Sponsorship

Save Time and Money: C4C saves you valuable time and money by handling all aspects of your corporate service day from start to finish.

Customized Project Management: C4C deploys specially trained project leaders to work with your staff, scope projects to meet your needs, order supplies*, manage logistics (communication, food, transportation, etc.), assign and support volunteers through the duration of the project, and facilitate team building, reflection and closing exercises as desired.

Access to C4Cs Network: Magnify your company’s reach and impact by capitalizing on C4C’s long-standing relationship with over fifty community partners and its rapidly growing network.

Engaging Experiences: C4C ensures your company’s volunteer group works on a well-developed and meaningful project that makes - and leaves - a positive impact on community partners and employees alike.

Recognition: In addition to receiving comprehensive project management services, your company will be listed on the Siena ACE website, appear in ACE’s publications and conference booklets, and be featured in ACE’s Deep Service Magazine (600 copies and 2,000 digital hits per year). Higher levels of sponsorship include recognition and/or an appearance on Siena’s “Change Makers” radio show (the second strongest FM radio signal in New York's Capital Region at 35,000 watts with an estimated 50,000 weekly listeners.).
