It's good business to build humanitarian connections in your community:
For shoppers: Shopping in the neighborhood can be more beneficial for local charities than one might imagine. More than 60% of every dollar spent in the community comes back to the community. Get to know the lay of the land. That means dollars spent in the community are in a large part of the same dollars that are made available to local charities and non-profits. Learn about new businesses as they start up in your neighborhood and learn if they carry products or services that can fit into your lifestyle. It’s important that you share the knowledge even it you do not have a need or the budget to patronize a new business.
For businesses: Make it easy for everyone in the community to know exactly how you are supporting community charities and non-profits. Monetary support or sponsorship is not the only assistance that can come from local businesses. Skills, talents, time and materials can be very beneficial. Even though most of us know and understand this, sometimes we as business owners fail to actually set aside time to identify these assets and present them properly to the charitable community. The really wonderful and spectacular thing about the local business/non-profit relationship is that all businesses can build bridges...brick and mortar as well as home-based. Because relationships are built with individuals, one persona at a time.
For Charities and non-profits: Develop your thoughts of receiving benefits in ways other than dollars. True there are some resources that only money can buy, however it’s up to you as the owner or manager of a humanitarian organization to organize your needs in ways that will clearly reveal how resources other than cash, check or credit cards.
