Giving back to the community can come in many forms. Whether we’re making a financial contribution, or donating time and services, it is always important for a business to support good causes. It’s important to know what you are doing, make good choices, and budget your time and money in places where they can be most effective!
Chase Your Passions:
When choosing a cause to back on behalf of your business, it’s always best to look toward something that you are passionate about. You will always fight harder and longer for something that holds a place in your heart. If you love animals like Rogan Marketing CEO Pamela Rogan, consider raising money for a local animal shelter, or go with your employees to volunteer. There are lots of dogs and cats with no home that need a friend in these places.
Maybe helping underprivileged children is a passion of yours. Consider enrolling in a big brothers/big sisters program, or donating your time or money to organizations that specialize in community outreach like the Girl Scouts or Boy Scouts.
Giving is More Than Money
While monetary donations to charities are always encouraged and appreciated, sometimes the gift of your time, attention, and talents can go a long way. Volunteering at a soup kitchen, or an after-school program can make a huge impact on a person’s life. Even agreeing to foster animals looking for their forever home can help spread kindness and love into a world in desperate need of it.
At Rogan Marketing, we have used our specialty talents to aid non-profit organizations. We have applied our web design, and social media skills at no cost to organizations such as Girl Scouts of Citrus and Go For The Greens, providing them with professional websites at no cost to help them raise money for valuable causes.
Whether you’re making a financial, personal, or professional difference in the world, there are causes that need your attention and care. Look inside yourselves as businessmen and women. What are you passionate about? How can you apply your resources, time, and talents to the betterment of that cause? We all depend upon the kindness of strangers at some point in time. Pay it forward, and leave your mark upon the world!
