Business Gives Back
Welcome to this year's Hartford Business Journal Giving Guide!
As business people, supporting and reinforcing the communities that nourish us is simply good business. We all belong to the same ecosystem and community. We rise or fall together.
Most of us have woken up to the fact that in today's world there are multiple bottom lines, and that profits, while always important, don't paint the whole picture of what success looks like. Our colleagues and employees, our customers and our families want us to give back … to have values and to bring value, in ways that make a difference, and that make us all proud. The customers and the communities we serve, and whose interests are intrinsic to our success expect it, and they should.
We hope that as you read this year's Giving Guide, you are impressed and gratified by the truly astounding collection of organizations contained in these pages; they work tirelessly to make our region a better place.
The individual contributors and organizations highlighted in this guide push beyond the daily 9-5 workday, serving as board members, patrons and fundraisers, all of them engaged as agents for positive change.
If you are looking for new ways to engage, we hope as you review the Giving Guide, you find your place as a driver not just of profit, but of positive community change.
We are all in this together, and there is always more to do!
– Joe Zwiebel, President and Publisher, Hartford Business Journal
