Each year, we make social impact predictions for the year ahead based on our cause partnership expertise. 2022 brought more big shifts in cause partnerships. Let’s take a look back at how well our predictions held up.
If we’ve learned anything from the last two years, a key to success is the ability to change strategies quickly when circumstances require. Nowhere was that more evident than with events pivoting from in person to digital. Even though we can meet in person and have personal connections again, the virtual scene is here to stay.
We see four key questions popping up from social impact pros in the P2P space. Take a look at our answers.
Since 1976, Black History Month has raised awareness of the accomplishments of Black people throughout history. Black History Month highlights continued disparities in access to opportunity. It calls for communities to work together in achieving racial equity in every facet of life while preserving and celebrating Black culture. Take a look at a few of our favorite cause campaigns currently making an impact in a range of equity issues including STEM, career readiness, volunteerism for racial equity, and Black culture and Black-owned brands.
From shareholders to employees, stakeholder expectations for companies to be a force for good in communities continues to rise. This is causing an urgent need for purpose to become fully embedded throughout a company’s DNA. Take a look at three trends we see taking shape for 2022.
DEI has topped the corporate purpose agenda for the last 18 months as stakeholders are increasingly holding companies accountable for their policies and actions. Partnerships can not only help companies avoid common mistakes and connect companies to the communities most underserved, but they can also help nonprofits extend their own DEI resources with further support.

We wanted to dig a little deeper to see how nonprofit organizations are reacting and how they are adjusting their own diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) policies. In late July For Momentum held intimate roundtable discussions with corporate partner practitioners to discuss how DEI issues are influencing their relationship development process. Much of the discussion centered around how these issues impact their corporate vetting and funding acceptance policies.
Our agency has long advised that corporate partner policies are an essential tool that not only make procedures more effective, but also ensure proper stewardship of an organization’s reputation and maximize effectiveness. There are many practical benefits that can be derived from purposeful corporate partner policy development. Over the years we’ve shared best practices including corporate partner policy checklists, scorecards and other tips and tools. Now would be a good time to do a policy tune up. There’s time to make adjustments that can go a long way in accelerating activities and creating operating efficiencies as we head into the busy fall and year end season of giving.
