goBeyondProfit Launches Precedent-setting Award for Corporate Generosity that Demonstrates Both Community and Company Impacts


Tuesday, July 23rd, 2019

goBeyondProfit initiative, a no-cost resource for business leaders interested in evolving their corporate generosity as a business strategy, has announced a first of its kind award for Georgia business leaders and their Georgia’s companies -- the goBeyondProfit Champion.

Unlike countless awards honoring corporate generosity alone, the goBeyondProfit Champion designation honors companies for community outreach benefitting both the community and their business.  Companies who earn the goBeyondProfit Champion designation have exemplary approaches that empower the company, its employees and community through:

  • cultivating company culture, 

  • deploying company resources and 

  • focusing on community empowerment.

The goBeyondProfit Champions will be selected and recognized on a rolling basis throughout the year, starting this Summer, with customized celebrations and profiles shared across the state.  

“The goBeyondProfit Champion awards program reflects goBeyondProfit’s core mission to share compelling stories and insights for business leaders to learn from and inspire one another,” explains goBeyondProfit founder, Rick Jackson.  “Champions exemplify excellence and community impact that’s remarkable irrespective of whether they are a small, medium or large company.”  

The goBeyondProfit Champion honorees are selected through peer nomination. To learn more about how to nominate a goBeyondProfit Champion inquire by email to [email protected].
