As a business owner, you will find yourself being approached by multiple non-profit organizations asking you to support their cause. When you're caught up in your daily to do list, taking the time to talk to these various organizations may seem like an inconvenience, but it is important to here them out. These are some important reasons that your organization should be giving to charity.
Make a Difference
This is probably the number one reason organizations get involved with charities. Most managers will chose an organization that is close to their heart because of their own life experiences. Others just have a philanthropic nature where they want to feel like they are making a difference in the life of others. From a non-profit standpoint, donations from organizations truly do make a difference. Though it seems like the $500 donation you made toward an event won't have much of an impact, your donation helped off-set costs to host the event, allowing the non-profit to raise over $10,000 from attendees.
Another popular reason why local organizations donate to charity is for tax purposes. When you donate to any organization, you can write the expenses off on your taxes.
Economical Impact In the Community
This is probably the most important reason why your organization should be giving to charity. When you donate to charity, you are improving the economy within your community. Just like your organization, charities have an effect on the economy by offering jobs, new programs to better the community, and in CASTLE's case, keeps children safe so they grow up to be a contributing member of society themselves. The families that CASTLE serves all shop in local stores and do business with local organizations, so your donation to a non-profit like CASTLE will come full circle.
When organizations stand together on a cause, it will make the community a better place. Becoming a partner of CASTLE will help keep children safe from abuse and neglect. Last year, 126 children died in Florida from child abuse, three of them were residents of the Treasure Coast and Okeechobee. Those are three children who could have had a bright future in this community, they could have been a local business owner, firefighter, or Executive Director of a local non-profit. Now this community will never know the impact they could have had. If you would like to stand with CASTLE on the prevention of child abuse and neglect to guarantee the future of our children and community, please call 772-465-6011 to see how you can get involved today!
