Editorial: Thankful for corporate giving

There is so much for which to be thankful during this holiday of gratitude. Here’s an example that might be overlooked sometimes: corporate citizenship.

Case in point: Exact Sciences expanded partnership with the Urban League of Greater Madison as part of Exact’s development of a new lab facility at the former Spectrum Brand’s property on the city’s South West side.

First of all, the site choice itself is a strategic investment in the city. While we were disappointed Exact Sciences wasn’t able to locate its headquarters downtown in the Doyle Square project, this development could be a game-changer for a part of town that could use one. But then there’s Exact’s targeted relationship with the Urban League to fill some of the 2580 jobs that will be created over the next few years.

That’s a Race to Equity response that is welcome and admirable. Exact Science’s influence as a corporate citizen in Madison continues to grow. We’re lucky to have them.
