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 that there are a lot of CGOs, but perhaps there should be? What’s your opinion?
