Our entrants put time, energy and intelligence to use to help employees, leaders. Community members and foundations strengthen the greater good. It’s time to recognize them. Our entrants demonstrated creativity and dedication in philanthropy through PR and social media campaigns, partnerships in their communities, publications and much more.

It took time, but our judges named the short lists of the best initiatives. Next, the judges will re-visit the finalists’ entries and name the 2015 winners of the Corporate Social Responsibility Awards. Look for the PR Daily.com Special Edition in late January.

The staff of PR Daily congratulates each of our finalists and wishes you the best of luck in the final round of judging!
