Aligning your small business with a non-profit is a great business move. It not only helps integrate you into a larger community but there are amazing non-profits out there that could certainley use your support. Here are some reasons why you should support a non-profit through your business.
Everyone wants to feel like their job is creating meaningful change. Supporting a non-profit through your business will boost employee morale and keep them happier. Attending non-profit events as a work team also encourages employee bonding. Happy employees attract happy employees. A positive work environment leads to a more productive company overall.
Much like aligning your business with a non-profit impacts your employees it also impacts your customers. Potential customers, especially millenials and Gen-z, are more likely to spend their money with a company they feel is positively impacting the community. A positive appearance in the community goes a long way when attracting new customers.
Donating to a non-profit allows for large tax breaks for your business. The entire amount you donate to a non-profit is tax deductable. If for no reason other than the financial benefits, your small business should support a local non-profit. Putting money back in to your community ensures that the community will support you.
