speak to the executive director.
Non-profit leaders should be
happy to talk with potential donors
about their organization and their
impact, and should be especially
interested in building relationships
with local businesses.

4

Develop an ongoing relationship with the charities
you support. Don't limit
giving to the end of the year. Talk
to the non-profit about ways you
might be able to help year-round,
such as volunteering, sponsoring
events and inviting the charity's
CEO to speak to your local business associations.
|And remember, this is a twoway relationship. Ask the charity if
there are avenues to publicize your
support, such as in their donor
newsletters.

5

Engage your employees.
You can involve your employees in many ways - helping
you identify potential issues to
support, helping you select which
charities to give to, volunteering

and making their own contributions through a matching gifts
program.

6

Anticipate challenges. Small
businesses should try to
anticipate what might not go
as planned. For example, some
employees may not want to volunteer or might disagree with your
cause. It's your business and your
philanthropy, but you can allow for
flexibility.

7

Donation size isn't the only
factor. How much should
small businesses give to
charity? There are no set rules for
how much to give. What's most
important is that the donations
are aligned with the company's
mission and values. While financial
giving is important, there are
other ways to give charitably as
well (such as donating goods and
services). The size of the donation
is not the only factor to consider.
Every dollar counts when given to
a worthy, well-run charitable cause
or non-profit organization.
