Companies

Impact and business benefit

Social Initiative’s goal is to create an impact on society as well as business benefits for you as a company. We tailor your social engagement to your business model, core values and sustainability agenda addressing the Sustainable Development Goals relevant to your company. A good fit is a prerequisite for credibility and long-term commitment.

A meaningful engagement
Social Initiative develops an engagement where your employees feel proud and clients get involved. In collaboration with you, we set up different activities at the company to spread knowledge and joy. You receive regular updates with results, inspiring stories, photos, films and material to communicate in your internal and external channels.

Rest assured
With our many years of experience, you can be sure that your support ends up in the right place and has a significant social impact. The first step is choosing a social entrepreneur. In every country, there is an abundance of social entrepreneurs, and far from all are any good. Through our network, we offer you a wide selection of relevant social entrepreneurs for you to collaborate with. The social entrepreneurs we recommend have all passed Social Initiative’s rigorous quality assessment, with on-site visits and cross checking of references. We only recommend you the very best.

Measurable social change
To know exactly what kind of impact we contribute to together, we set up agreements which are the foundation of our partnership, with budgets, milestones and key performance indicators. Social Initiative does the monitoring and evaluation of your support, with annual on-site visits and regularly report back to you.

Together, we create change
Based on the passion and drive of our social entrepreneurs, we provide them with capital, knowledge, structure and experience to help them expand and make an even bigger impact. We also share knowledge and best practice methods between the social entrepreneurs.

Individuals

Social impact and engagement

We want you to feel involved and assured that your support makes a real difference. That’s why we begin with a meeting where we listen to your needs and what areas you, and perhaps your family, are passionate about. We develop your engagement based on your wishes. Regardless of the amount of time you have, we make an arrangement that suits you. You might want to contribute with knowledge and competence or visit the organisation together with your family.
