Corporate Social Responsibility in Education

MMS Education helps nonprofits, foundations and companies advance their corporate social responsibility missions in education.

Across the United States, organizations partner with educators and nonprofits to lead change and make a significant impact on the education landscape. Brands recognize this is an area of need and also an important and relevant issue for their key stakeholders. The role an organization can play within education is meaningful. Since 1977, MMS Education has worked with for-profit companies and nonprofit organizations to help them make a positive impact in the education market – and ultimately advance their corporate social responsibility (CSR) goals.

MMS Education takes great pride in developing ground-breaking CSR programs that yield measurable results and advance our clients’ social impact in schools nationwide. Our clients engage educators and students around a diverse set of issues within the education setting including: health and wellness, STEAM, physical activity and fitness, and entrepreneurship.

Our focus is in education, within the context of a broader corporate social responsibility strategy. We work with companies focused on improving the quality of education in the United States, and nonprofits looking to support educators and their students, ultimately helping schools, teachers and students thrive within all areas of education in the K-12 years.

The Power of Measurement

Critical to the success of a corporate social responsibility in education initiative is the role of research and data to drive program development and execution. Building in reporting and measurement from the beginning stages of a CSR program is critical to its long-term success. Today, more than ever, it is crucial for organizations to set CSR goals, measure progress, and communicate outcomes. Customers, employees and key stakeholders expect organizations to communicate their impact. Measurement allows an organization to tell a compelling story, invest wisely and ultimately make a difference. MMS Education is a data-driven organization with expertise to monitor and analyze social impact activities and results, with the end goal of demonstrating and communicating both business results and social impact.
