Local businesses are always on the lookout for ideas that can improve their profit margin. This is the reason why businesses invest hundreds of thousands of dollars in marketing, product innovations, and technology advancements. It’s clear to business leaders how these investments can help improve profitability, grow a larger customer base, and fulfill other core business needs.

What isn’t always apparent to business leaders is why philanthropy is good for business too. To some business leaders, giving and philanthropy may seem like an “extra” or something you engage in only if there is sufficient time, money, and interest to do so. In today’s highly competitive market, this couldn’t be further from the truth.

Businesses who have embraced philanthropy as a core business practice have found they reap rewards far beyond what they thought was possible. This has turned philanthropy, volunteering, and employee giving into business imperatives that can’t be ignored and are an essential part of doing business.

Join us for a conversation with three local business leaders to learn how they have created a culture of giving back in their business and how it is benefiting them!
