Become a Kindness Certified Company

Kindness Certified Companies

Kindness Certified Companies (KCC) are good to their people, community, planet and world.

Expanding upon our successful Great Kindness Challenge — and in partnership with trailblazing Chambers of Commerce — we recognize upstanding companies and provide meaningful opportunities to elevate their commitment to kindness.

Together – with our families, schools, businesses and nonprofit partners – we bring our community together and propel the kindness movement forward.
