When we think of making charitable donations, be it personally or through business, money is often the first thing that comes to mind. And while a monetary donation to a cause is a wonderful way to give back, at HeartPress PR, we believe that it isn’t the only way. Today we’re sharing our top 6 charitable donations that won’t cost you a dime.
In addition to helping you do more for your community by giving back, at HeartPress, we’re here to motivate you through the stories of local businesspeople who are already doing incredible good. We’re so pleased to start off this Giving Back feature series with a truly inspiring individual: Al Hasham.
We’ve talked about the importance of CSR (that’s corporate social responsibility) in order to recruit great talent. But a stand-out community investment portfolio isn’t only helpful in bulking up the back end of your business. CSR is also an excellent strategy for enticing new customers, and spreading news of your business through positive word of mouth and media.
Employees care about giving back and this isn’t a novel mindset in millennials, either. A report, which surveyed young adults between the ages of 13 and 25 back in 2006, found that 79 percent of those surveyed want to work for companies that are cognizant of their impact on society, companies who have a corporate philanthropy strategy. Almost 70 percent also stated they keep abreast of their employers’ social contributions.
