Helping people make a difference for causes they care about
We know volunteering helps to make a difference for the causes we care about. But, it’s SO. MUCH. MORE. Giving back is good for our health, it builds connections, grows feelings of empathy, empowers us to lead and can even help shape our career.
So, how can we incorporate it into our lives in a more impactful way?
Join us on our journey as we explore ALL OF THE WAYS we can be making a difference. From discovering the cause you are truly passionate about, to executing independent fundraisers that will have real impact, we will be with you every step of the way. We are a compassion company, driven to turn empathy into action.
“Somewhere inside all of us is the power to change the world.” – Roald Dahl
What is The Giving Back Society?
The Giving Back Society is helping people to turn empathy into action, from small changes we can make in our day to day lives, to big efforts for causes we care about. We have a long term vision of programs for ages 2 to 102, but our first focus is helping high school students to volunteer in a way that has real impact, real results and real world benefits.
