Nominations Being Accepted for Citizens Awards

May 14, 2014

Every May, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation embarks on a journey to find and recognize the best corporate citizens. We believe that business helps make the world a better place, and every year this belief is reaffirmed as we receive nominations for our annual Corporate Citizenship Awards.

The Citizens Awards, now celebrating its 15th year, recognizes the most accomplished social and community initiatives within the business community. Dozens of industry leaders, including 3M, Citi, Chevron, Google, IBM, UPS, and Qualcomm, have received a Citizen for their outstanding contributions in addressing some of society’s greatest needs.

Now is the time for your company to join the legacy past award winners. The Corporate Citizenship Center will be accepting nominations for the 15th annual Citizens Awards until May 30. Download and start your application today!

Additionally, new for this year, the Foundation will award two Best Corporate Steward awards. These awards honor a business for its exceptional overall corporate citizenship portfolio.
