03 Mar Make Giving Easier by Following These Guidelines
We’re proud of the Momentum Marketing Group commitment to social responsibility. We’re also quite pleased that more and more business leaders are realizing that they can grow their companies while making a positive difference in the world. Consumers want to invest in companies involved in community giving, and professionals want to work for them. With that in mind, we invite you to follow these guidelines and create your own business giving plan:
• Do the Homework: Our Momentum Marketing Group team encourages you to avoid giving randomly to charities that offer compelling narratives. Do your homework first. Learn about some nonprofits, the impacts they make, and how they spend their money. Donate to an agency that maximizes dollars.
• Monitor Value: For accurate reporting, keep track of everything you give. When you donate money, use credit cards or checks instead of cash. When you donate items such as food and clothing, document their value. This data will come in handy during tax time.
• Go Direct: Bypass third-party solicitors. They may be scams, and even if they aren’t, they are likely to take a cut of each donation they collect for a nonprofit. Contact an agency yourself, and give directly.
We give back in many ways throughout the year. Learn more about these efforts, and get more tips on charitable outreach by visiting the Momentum Marketing Group website, momentummarketinggroup.com.
