Giving Back

Business Gives Back

Welcome to our fourth annual Giving Guide, featuring ways that people and organizations are giving back. We designed this resource to connect you with the companies and causes that matter to you and your business. When you read through the opportunities to give, we are sure that you will uncover a new opportunity, or be reminded of an old favorite.

This publication will unlock the mission of organizations, their goals, and highlight ways that you and your company can give back. What an amazing community that we live in — where public for profit companies support the nonprofit organizations that provide so much to people who are in need.

Not only will you read about the organizations, but you will also see the people who are connected with the organizations. In the 35 profiles that are included in the book, you will meet the CEOs, Presidents, and Directors. You will see their photos and read their wonderful words.

The Giving Guide is not the only way that HBJ highlights the nonprofit community. Over the past year we have shared with our readers examples of people who give back. In our print and online editions, we have published hundreds of names and photos of people who have given their time and their money to the nonprofit community. HBJ has reported on the unique ways that nonprofits are changing and facing a new economy, one with fewer resources and more need. Take a look on our website (, and if you know of a story or an organization that we haven't uncovered please contact me.

Let us explore new ways to lend a helping hand to strengthen our region with service to others. Our business community gives back.
