Here's an even more important number. According to the National Center for Charitable Statistics, more than 1.5 million nonprofit organizations are registered in the U.S.. Nonprofits need volunteers, they need businesses to help them; they need community involvement. In short, they need friends. Real friends who will help them achieve their overall goal. They need you, and not just virtually.
Are you a contractor? How about partnering with Habitat for Humanity? Do you sell software? Perhaps the local food pantry needs some help with inventory. Besides feeling good about what you are doing in your community, you now have something to talk about in the press because now, you have a relationship worth talking about.
PR NewsWire has a section for press releases only related to Corporate Social Responsibility News and Not for Profit News. These are companies that have chosen to talk about the work they are doing with nonprofits. That work generates something for your press releases and gives your company something to tweet about. All while feeling good about you are doing.
Check out your local community, or your corporation's constituents. Partner with a nonprofit that makes sense for your industry, your business and what your organization cares about. Now you have something to talk about in the press...and it's the right thing to do.
If you need some help figuring out this PR thing and how to align your company goals with non-profit goals for the good of both organizations, drop us a line. http://www.leadingresults.comLast modified on Sunday, 02 June 2013
