Become a Corporate Partner

Many studies show that corporate charitable giving helps improve a company’s bottom line. According to data from the 1999 Cone/Roper Cause Trends Report:

  • 76% of consumers indicate they would switch brands or retailers to one associated with a good cause, when price and quality are equal.
  • 87% of employees at companies with philanthropic programs feel a stronger sense of loyalty to their employer.

External benefits of corporate giving:

  • Improved customer loyalty.
  • Enhanced reputation and standing in the community.
  • Increased positive name recognition and brand awareness.
  • New and enhanced relationships with key community leaders and officials.
  • Beneficial business-to-business relationships with nonprofits.
  • A reservoir of goodwill within the community.
  • Healthier, more livable and economically stronger communities.

Internal benefits of corporate giving:

  • Competitive advantage in attracting and retaining employees.
  • Leadership and development opportunities for employees.
  • Exposure of senior staff to new ideas, points of view and important social movements.
  • Improved internal communication and common purpose.

Matching Employee Gift Programs are often available in addition to outright Charitable Gifts and Grants to 501(c)(3) public charities. Please consult your company intranet & Human Resources to obtain the necessary forms.
