Annual Theme


CGI's 2013 theme, Mobilizing for Impact, explores ways that CGI members and member organizations can be more effective in leveraging individuals, partner organizations, and key resources in their commitment efforts. Mobilizing the right entities, and allowing them to reach their full potential, creates lasting and scalable success. This builds on CGI's 2012 theme, Designing for Impact, which encouraged the design of purposeful commitments from the outset.
