Remembering to Give Back

As Green Business Women, we always want to do well, support our company and our employees and partners, and to grow our business.

 

For the past six years, my business partner and I have implemented a number of ways to give back to the community, including donating 10% of product sales, fundraising drives, charity auctions, and participating on boards and as volunteer committee members.

 I highly encourage you to build in a philanthropic arm to your existing business. The benefits include the ability to help out non-profit and community-based organizations, which are able to effect very great change, as well as greater exposure in your own community, tax deductions, and the feeling of being a valued member of your community.

We have organized our efforts along the following topical areas: 

  

  • entrepreneurship education for women of color
  • women, children, and families
  • music, film, and the arts
  • environmental sustainability
  • green businesses
  • civic and political involvement

 

 Perhaps you and your company have your own topics that you'd like to support. Go for the 1%, 5%, or 10% mark — the more you are able to profit, the more you have an opportunity to give back to your community.

  • Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and everything. However imagine
    if you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this site could definitely be one of the best in its niche.

    Excellent blog!
