San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) November 25, 2012
Charity News Forum, a top source for philanthropy and nonprofit news, named business professional Phin Upham as December’s philanthropist of the month. Upham’s unique views on corporate charity helped to establish him as a strong choice for the title. As the site’s philanthropist of the month, Upham will have a featured homepage spot on Charity News Forum that highlights his contributions to the website.
In Phin Upham’s notable essay, “A Model for Giving: The Effect of Corporate Charity on Employees,” Upham highlights the powerful internal benefits for a corporation that gives to charity. He outlines a rational and strategic set of principles that, if followed by a company, could potentially have a positive effect on a company’s employees by increasing employee retention, boosting identification with the firm and raising helping behavior.
In addition to writing on the subject, Phin Upham is also a seasoned philanthropist, including community service involvement with his alma mater, University of Pennsylvania. Upham served as the youngest member of the Board of the University of Pennsylvania Museum’s Young Friends, where he led major aspects of community outreach in West Philadelphia. Additionally, he was responsible for all graduate student involvement in the museum.
