Why should your business be involved in philanthropic giving? Here’s our top six:
1. A brighter future
There is an opportunity in every community to help someone in need, and businesses with a social conscience want to use their talents to help lift others to an improved quality of life.
2. Strengthening our connection
Leaders and employees of your company will feel connected to people in-and-outside of your business in a refreshingly new way.
3. Intrinsic rewards
The gift we receive for helping–especially doing something for someone without expecting something in return–can’t be purchased, and it’s never lost.
4. Living Values
Working together on a goal that is a more-than-just-business strengthens many of the core values companies are working to build in their culture.
When employees of different companies work together, an opportunity is created to spark fresh insights in areas of leadership, project management, teamwork, and communication.
6. Brands that give
Providing opportunities for your employees to volunteer reveals the heart of your company. Being involved in the community connects people–people that may, or may not, refer business to you. Yet, your company’s commitment to philanthropic work creates a positive impression of your brand while helping build a better world.
