Ryan Scott, 48, CEO and founder of Causecast, is working to make corporate social responsibility easier for everyone involved, from the corporation and the employees to the nonprofits they support.
Causecast, a Certified B Corporation, operates a web service that matches corporate volunteers to nonprofit projects. The system provides a comprehensive reporting and management system.
Causecast allows both management and rank-and-file employees to put projects into the system to garner volunteer support.
Alicia Quinn, Director of Programs for Mission Edge, a nonprofit based in San Diego, uses the Causecast platform to match skills-based volunteers to specific needs in the nonprofit community there.
"It truly is a 'one stop shop' for corporate social responsibility and employee engagement," Quinn says.
"When I first began designing the program, I didn't have an effective method of sharing opportunities for nonprofit engagement with volunteers. I feared having to resort to email and an Excel spreadsheet to source organizations' needs, and volunteers' interests and skills. Causecast offers an efficient and effective solution for matching the supply with the demand." Quinn says Mission Edge chose Causecast instead.
