Providence, RI, July 12, 2023 — CampusWorks, a socially responsible transformation partner serving higher education, is set to celebrate its first annual Impact Weekend, GivingWorks, on July 21-22. This philanthropic weekend begins with a half day of employee training and professional development on Friday. On Saturday, employees will deliver over $33,000 in donations to 27 non-profit organizations and provide volunteer service in their local communities, creating a nationwide ripple of impact.
In May, CampusWorks announced its “Do-Good Grants” initiative, a program that encourages employees to apply for donations of up to $1,250 to support non-profit organizations in their local communities.
“CampusWorks is dedicated to making a positive impact in the communities where we work and live, and an employee-driven philanthropy campaign encompasses the culture of collaboration and empathy in which our company thrives”, said Liz Murphy, CEO and Chief Evangelist of CampusWorks. “With this GivingWorks Impact Weekend, we can lend a hand in our local communities and create lasting change in the world around us.”
Locally, one of this year’s Do-Good Grant recipients is Rhode Island Blood Center, whose mission is to proudly serve as a vital community lifeline dedicated to helping patients and advancing global public health. We run seven full-time donation centers across Rhode Island, one in Middletown, CT, and mobile drives throughout both states. They also provide therapeutic treatments for patients in local hospitals.
The CampusWorks employee who nominated this organization said, “Blood and its products are life-changing and save lives.”
