The purpose of the Common Good Awards is to honor companies in Rhode Island who encourage their employees to participate in philanthropic efforts in their communities.

Criteria for applicant

Companies who apply should be encouraging their employees to actively, not just monetarily, participate in philanthropic programs in the community AND/OR offer employees the opportunity to participate in such efforts together through company outreach programs. The company may also offer employees incentives for this work (paid day off, donation to charity, etc.) Not for profit organizations are also encouraged to nominate the companies they have benefitted from.

Honorees will be selected in each of the following categories

Micro – 1-9 employees

Small – 10-49 employees

Medium – 50-249 employees

Large – 250+ employees

The application will be open through September 27th. Winners will be featured in the January 2020 issue of Rhode Island Monthly and celebrated at a special event.
