Many major corporations make philanthropy a key part of their business. Some of the most charitable companies, like Wells Fargo and and Google, give billions of dollars each year to nonprofit organizations. Your company might want to consider joining their ranks and benefiting from philanthropic giving in your community.

Take a look at some of the potential benefits of corporate charity sponsorship in Kansas City for your company:

  • Tax incentives: Donations to charities are deductible for both corporations and individuals. This applies to goods and services, as well as monetary gifts.
  • Visibility in the community: The positive light shed upon corporations that sponsor charitable organizations and events is enormous. The company name and logo might appear on more mailings and promotional items than that same amount of money could buy in advertising dollars.
  • Public image: People appreciate generosity, and the improvement in public image to those companies that contribute to the community make doing business in the area much easier.
  • Networking opportunities: Fundraising events are often high-priced galas attended by the upper echelon of a community. Attendance at these events can provide significant networking opportunities that can increase your business opportunities in a social environment.

Fundraising Tips: Ask Your Friends to Support the Love Fund

As one of the most dynamic nonprofit organizations in the greater Kansas City area, the Love Fund needs your support. Your donations are used to provide everything from glasses to counseling services to area children, and this year, the need has never been greater.

Here are some tips to rally your own personal network and help you raise donations:

  • Relate the Love Fund’s mission to something your friends and family already support. Essentially, by matching the Love Fund’s mission to their interests, you’ll be making a connection they can’t resist. For example, your friends already donate school supplies in the fall, volunteer with summer programs for kids, or support community education, so they’re already relating to just some of the ways the Love Fund helps the community.
  • Prepare answers for the questions you know they’ll ask. The more you know, the more you’ll be able to convince them that their donation will be used in a way that benefits children throughout 37 counties in the Greater Kansas City metropolitan area.
  • Show the results of the Love Fund’s work. By talking with your friends and colleagues about how the money is spent and the effect it has had, they’ll be more enthusiastic to help.
