2018 Community Impact Awards: Recognizing Businesses that Give Back

2018 Community Impact Awards: Recognizing Businesses that Give Back

By Angela Blue, Ryan Miller, Grace Silipigni and Melissa M. Stewart


We’ve been hearing a lot lately about corporate social responsibility. As consumers are holding corporations accountable for affecting social change, business owners are in a position to set the example of philanthropy through their practices and profits. More importantly though, they’re able to make real positive change within the communities that they live and serve. Our Community Impact Award winners are doing just that. Through monetary donations, employee volunteering or creative acts of kindness they’re leading teams to join together and make tangible impacts in Coastal Virginia. We’re honored to highlight these businesses in our 3rd Annual Community Impact Awards, and we’re inspired by the ways in which they make a difference.

 

How were the businesses chosen?

CoVa BIZ held online nominations Aug. 1–30 for businesses to share the philanthropic ways in which they give back. From there, an editorial team determined the top 20 Community Impact winners based on their effect on the community through innovative work programs, employee volunteering and creative business models that promote the social health of the community.
