If you own a local business, teaming up with charities or crowdfunding efforts is a good way to help benefit the community. You may gain some new, steady customers while playing a role in helping those in need.
A few examples of charitable causes common to New England businesses include:
- Pet rescue, especially organizations that save animals from overcrowded municipal pounds
- Children’s charities, including those that support children battling an illness
- Hunger relief, particularly in larger cities with poor economies
There are many different ways businesses can help support such efforts. One is by donating a portion of their proceeds to a designated group or cause.
If you own a venue or some other type of business with meeting spaces, consider offering space for a fundraiser. Common venue-based fundraisers include:
- Indoor yard sales
- Concerts or shows
- Craft fairs
Sponsorship of charitable events is also a possibility. When a charity hosts an event that requires sponsors, some of the possibilities for sponsorship include:
- TV or radio spots
- Jumpers/inflatables for kids
- Drink or bar stations
- Popcorn, burger, or hot dog stations
Teaming up for charitable events is good for your business and your neighbors. Contact True New England for more information on promotional options for your company.
