In addition to the sweat equity your team can provide an organization, there are also programs in existence, like the Entrepreneur Foundation, that enable startups to allocate private equity to a donor-advised fund. Such programs can be interesting options for companies that don’t have extra money to donate. And, as entrepreneurs, we hope our donated stock, once we have a liquidity event, will have significantly more value to that organization in the long run than we initially thought.

About 600 volunteers — including several top Austin executives — broke a sweat and turned some dirt at the site of Sustainable Food Center’s    future community garden at the MLK Rail Station. Entrepreneurs Foundation of Central Texas coordinated volunteers from 23 local companies, marking the biggest service day for the foundation.

When they launched the idea for the event they had hoped to have around 50 attendees. Instead over 150 community leaders showed up to participate in the dialogue about the importance of companies being engaged in philanthropic and community efforts. When done right this is win/win ... as it impacts the social well being, but also helps the company's reputation and brand with customers, employees and the community.
