As the holidays draw near, people are focusing on giving back, especially to those organizations that are important to them.
By selecting an organization, it not only makes you feel warm and fuzzy but it can also help support your marketing strategy and can even grow your bottom line!
You probably have some of your operating budget allocated to things like donations and charitable giving already. If you’re simply giving to anyone who asks until that budget runs out, you’re doing it wrong. It’s your money/goods/services that you’re giving – make it worth your while!
Your Non-Profit Trifecta
- Support an organization that aligns with your values.
- Know how much of your donation goes to support the cause vs. operating expenses.
- Ensure their supporters are potential customers of your business.
By continually supporting one non-profit, you’re able to build a relationship and establish the fact that this is something you truly believe in. This can go a long way with your customers! Your name may begin to become associated with the non-profit, and with a deeper investment, you can feel assured that your charitable giving is really making a difference.
