Where does one start when it comes to describing the Carole Robertson Center for Learning? Their reach? (At their three West Side facilities, they nurture and educate hundreds of low-income families, 75% of which live below federal poverty level.) Their history? (Formed in 1976, the center was named in honor of Carole Robertson, Addie Mae Collins, Cynthia Wesley, and Denise McNair — the four girls who were killed in the 1963 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in Birmingham.) Or perhaps their achievements and awards? Their grass-roots leadership? Their cool annual fundraiser at Schubas?
Okay, you might not have heard of them before, but you get the idea. This is one of those relatively rare not-for-profits that not only gets admirable things done but actually expands and improves year in and year out.

If you’re a corporate leader looking for a worthy way to give back — either financially or in volunteer hours – look no further.
