Enactus donors play an essential role in advancing our work to improve lives, strengthen communities and develop socially responsible business leaders while realizing the business advantages that come from being a part of the Enactus network. It’s a partnership that provides a valuable addition to a company’s CSR portfolio, as well as the opportunity for employee involvement, student recruitment, executive networking and brand awareness. These opportunities are structured around annual giving levels and individual sponsorships of specific program initiatives and events. Whatever your company’s interests and objectives, whether it be for full scale involvement at a global level or for a more targeted approach, we’ll work with you to develop a partnership plan to meet your company’s objectives.
Engage Your Employees
The Enactus program provides meaningful volunteer opportunities uniquely tailored to the interests and skills of business professionals. Based on your desired level of involvement, we can provide activities for your company’s employees around the world or in specific countries or communities. These activities range from day-long commitments at events and competitions to more substantial participation through individual team advisory boards and community projects. Every year, thousands of executives take advantage of these opportunities and experience the personal and professional rewards that come from contributing their time to support the work of Enactus students.
Recruit Top Talent
Enactus students are leaders that blend a competitive spirit and desire to succeed with a sense of integrity and commitment to make a difference throughout their careers. Their experience in Enactus has taught them how to take initiative, plan and execute projects, communicate and work as part of a team. Recruiters report that Enactus students are more prepared to transition from school to work, align better with their company’s culture and advance more quickly than their peers. Enactus donors can connect with these students through a number of special recruiting opportunities such as career fairs, online job postings, career publications, targeted communications and introductions to faculty and teams.
Connect With Other Leaders
Enactus activities and events take place year-round and provide a forum for executives from donor companies to connect outside of the traditional business setting. These events are organized at the regional, national and international levels and are designed to allow for maximum peer-to-peer interaction. The executives involved with Enactus represent an influential group of business leaders from a diverse range of industries. As a donor, executives from your company have the opportunity to participate in this network, make new contacts, strengthen relationships and gain valuable business insights while supporting a shared cause.
Build Positive Recognition
Supporting Enactus provides significant recognition within an extensive network of university students, academic professionals and business executives. It’s an opportunity to build brand awareness and make a positive impression on potential employees, customers and business partners, as well as the general public. Recognition opportunities are intended to provide maximum, ongoing exposure and vary by giving level and individual sponsorship. We’ll also work with you to provide the tools and support necessary to further activate and promote your support through items such as newsletters, corporate publications, marketing materials, websites and media outreach.
