Creative Ways for Businesses to Give Back to the Community

There is much more to charitable giving in Kansas City than meets the eye.

The truth is that philanthropy is considerably more interesting and exciting than simply writing a contribution check.

Among the most valuable gift you can give is your time. Whether you are an social media professional who can volunteer services by helping with a fundraising campaign or an interior design professional who can use their professional skill sets to create ambiance at an event venue, sharing your time and talents is a gift.

The time you volunteer gives a return on your investment that keeps giving and giving, long after your volunteer work is over.

Another way your business can contribute is to match the donations made by your employees, sponsor a casual dress day, donate equipment and supplies, or simply provide meeting space to the Love Fund.

Doing these things not only gives you considerable tax advantages, but it also multiplies your company’s efforts and overall contribution several times over and can help charitable organizations reach their fundraising targets faster and more efficiently.

You can also donate hard goods for distribution. This provides a tangible benefit for the recipients, and it is a great way to attract new customers and clients to try your products that can become loyal customers as their lives improve. Whether your company sells mattresses, clothing or hygiene supplies, there is no contribution that is too large or too small.

We would love for you to contact the Love Fund for Children for more information about charitable giving in Kansas City and the ways you can help us achieve our goals.

Love Fund Partners with the Big Splash Bathroom Remodel Project

One way your organization can give back is through a charity partnership in Kansas City.

For the past four years, the Love Fund for Children has teamed up with Schloegel Design Remodel as they provide bathroom renovations to special needs recipients.

Schloegel has been providing their Big Splash Custom Bath Giveaway to a select family each year, performing renovations to the bathrooms of homes for a child with special needs and his or her family.

This year, they added a bonus, the Big Splash Ripple Effect. That was one complete remodel. These renovations make a huge difference in the daily lives of those individuals, simply by giving them greater access to the most used room in their home.

Some of these seemingly simple revisions can open a new area of the home for children who were hindered by their physical limitations.

For example, sometime the renovations include converting bathtubs into accessible shower stalls. Other projects have widened the bathroom doorway to permit entry into the room for children in wheelchairs.

This charity partnership in Kansas City would not be possible without the outstanding support of sponsors and partners who have donated time for labor and materials for projects and renovations.

Your organization can promote community goodwill and reap the marketing benefits by teaming up with Love Fund for Children, whether aligning with us or sponsoring one of our events.

There are many great ways you can help children in our area. Contact us today to find out more.
