Help With Corporate Response:
We are launching a coordinate effort on the Corporate response to floods in Pakistan. The objective is to have corporations do one or more of the following:
- Make a donation towards flood relief efforts
- Set up a separate employee donation matching limit for employee donations towards relief efforts
- Send a Corporate Broadcast to all employees to raise awareness
If you workÂ at one of the S&P 500 companies specifically or any other company with 100+ employees andÂ can help in handling communication within your company,Â please join the following Google group:

More on the Corporate Response Initiative:
We want to coordinate this effort across different companies by coming up with a common strategy and a common message to approach Corporate Giving.Â The right approach can increase the odds of getting a positive response from Corporate Giving. In addition to working with Corporate Giving, the company representatives can help raise awareness about a natural disaster.
- Potentially huge financial help towards relief efforts. As an example just two companies (Google and BMO financial group) have donated $350 k towards flood relief. Here is what the Corporations did for the 2005 Earthquake.
- Right communication and lobbying can make a big difference in Corporation’s decision to do something towards relief efforts.
- Raising awareness within the company. People tend to donate if the Corporation endorses a cause by sending a Corporate Broadcast or if a fellow employee informs them about a disaster.
- Establishing relationship with Corporate Giving, a processes and a network for any future events.
