E-Newsletter September 2010
At Grand Circle, philanthropy has been a vital part of our business since we began the Foundation in 1992. It's why the annual Corporate Citizenship Summit, sponsored by Boston Business Journal, is such a special event for us. We get to see how other companies are embracing what we've known all along: doing good is also good business. In our new book, Driving With No Brakes, we put a lot of thought into sharing our perspective on corporate philanthropy—and, in the process, spent a lot of time reliving our journey. Given the opportunity, we'd do it again in a heartbeat.
