    CBOL's Corporate Social Responsibility Plan

    CBOL Corporation was founded on the premise that there should be a balance between work, community, and personal life. Over the years, CBOL has developed policies and practices that support this premise. One such practice is our Corporate Social Responsibility Plan ("CSRP").

    CBOL encourages active participation in its CSRP by enabling every CBOL member to choose how to give back to his/her own community. CBOL members may volunteer within an organization of their choice, two days per year, whether it be through a church, or school, or other outreach program. Additionally, CBOL gives upwards of 10% of its profits to charitable organizations. CBOL will also consider matching donations and sponsorships for its members.

    Notably CBOL matched employee contributions for the American Red Cross, Hurricane Katrina Fund, Tsunami Fund and has contributed generously to PCI, the Library Foundation of Los Angeles, The Korea Society, Town Hall Los Angeles, and employee interests, such as the National MS Walk.

    At CBOL, family and community are important.
