Hi David, It's great you were able to find mentorship through team sports and it's so nice to see that you want others to have that experience as well. As Irina mentioned, many large corporations invest a portion of their profits to community initiatives that align with their mission and help address societal problems that their organizations seeks to solve. Many companies are not just looking to provide financial grants, but for ways their employees can engage with the community and use their skills to help address the issues faced in their community. If you have an idea for a program or organization that will address problems faced by society and can integrate how employees can get involved, you can approach organizations that may be interested in helping!
This professional recommends the following next steps:
- Frame your request/outreach in a way that will benefit the company as well as the community
- Outline the program you're seeking to create and the problem that it solves
