Does Your Company Have a Chief Giving Officer?

There are a lot of C-level titles—Chief Executive Officer, Chief Technology Officer, Chief Operating Officer, and the list could go on and on.

But what about Chief Giving Officer?  Does your company have one?

A Chief Giving Officer has the responsibility to implement a company’s giving strategy.  Sometimes that responsibility includes creating an implementing a strategy.

Perhaps one of the better known companies for a CGO is TOMS shoes.  There the CGO is responsible to help the company focus upon its giving efforts for health care, education, water and sanitation.

Yoobi, a school supply company, also has a CGO.  Givealittle.com, a crowdfunding platform, also has a CGO.

I can’t say there’s a lot of CGOs, but perhaps there should be?  What’s your opinion?
