Doris Rubenstein – The Good Corporate Citizen
Corporate citizenship refers to the way a company integrates basic social values with everyday business practices, operations and policies. A corporate citizenship company understands that its own success is intertwined with societal health and well being. Therefore, it takes into account its impact on all stakeholders, including employees, customers, communities, suppliers, and the natural environment.
This handbook draws from the author?s experience crafting and implementing philanthropic and volunteer strategies with companies such as IBM, Exxon, Mobil, 3M, and General Mills. A step-by-step primer on creating a comprehensive corporate citizenship program, The Good Corporate Citizen lays out how companies can maximize this exciting new trend.

“This book is highly recommended.” (Tulsa Business Journal, 4/15/2004)
“Doris Rubenstein’s book makes sound financial sense and should be a must-read for executives of all businesses, small and large alike. She exhibits an intimate understanding of the fiscal demands and corporate concerns of business owners when first establishing relationships with charities. Rubenstein presents a sensible, ethical, and effective approach to corporate philanthropy that is much needed in today’s world. If (small) businesses are the lifeblood of a community, her book is an important guide to how they can forge a partnership to achieve civic and cultural improvement and success.” —Russell Rothman, Executive Vice President M. Rothman & Co, Inc.
