As G&A launches its “Like to Give” campaign benefiting the Girls & Boys Clubs of San Antonio, we’d like to take a minute to think about how and why businesses choose to partner with certain nonprofits. Much has been said about the business benefits of encouraging volunteerism and giving back to the community. Not only does your business receive some great (and often free) good press, but creating a corporate culture that promotes community involvement has been proven to increase employee engagement, bolster recruitment and retention efforts, and even improve your business’ reputations.
But deciding to make a positive impact in your community is just the beginning. If you’re serious about making community involvement part of your company’s culture, you should take the time to carefully choose the right nonprofit(s) to donate to, especially if you’d like to create a lasting or ongoing partnership.
Here are 3 tips for choosing the right nonprofit(s) for your business to partner with from Forbes.com:
One of G&A’s core values is to promote passionate community involvement. As a business with multiple regional offices, G&A strives to make a lasting positive impact in the communities they do business in. In this “Like To Give” campaign, benefiting the Girls & Boys Clubs of San Antonio, G&A Partners will donate $1 for each new like the G&A Partners and Boys & Girls Clubs of San Antonio Facebook pages receive, up to $1,000. The donations made from each new “like” will go a long way towards enhancing the educational, social and moral development of San Antonio’s youth.
