Business Giving Roundtable

Many companies feel a greater sense of community but may not always be clear on how to approach corporate citizenship and nonprofit requests. The Business Giving Roundtable (formerly Corporate Philanthropy Roundtable) was formed to engage businesses in the process of giving and resource sharing as part of a community-wide approach to business development and corporate citizenship. Members of BGR in Santa Barbara County are demonstrating that business can do well by doing good.
