There are several possible ways to support social causes through your business. Below are some strategies to consider.
1. Donate a percentage of your sales or profits to charity
Base the amount you donate on your profits or sales within a particular time frame, by setting a percentage. This is therefore dependent on the volume of sales or profits.
If this sounds like something that would suit your business check out my other material on cause marketing for more detailed information on this strategy.
2. Make ad-hoc financial donations
Alternatively, you may want to take a more ad-hoc approach where, at the end of every month or every quarter, you decide how much money you would like to donate.
3. Make regular financial donations
If you want to be more regular in your donations and charitable giving it’s very similar to what you might do personally. You could be setting up some kind of standing order or regular payment with the cause or charity which you want to support.
I hope this has given you some ideas for how you can donate money through your business. I give more tips for growing a business by supporting causes in my Give-to-Profit Blog and my Give-to-Profit Book.
