Companies that encourage community involvement distinguish themselves from their competitors and see many benefits, including loyal customers and happier employees.

Many organizations have programs designed to foster social responsibility and increase involvement within their local communities.

Here are some benefits of supporting a local charity or Weston non-profits:

 1. The Chance to Give Back.

You can tie your business purpose to a particular charity or you can simply pick a charity that you and your employees are passionate about.

2. Promote Your Service.

As a leader in your industry, you likely have an area of expertise that’s of value to others. Consider offering your service(s) for free or at a discounted rate or offer to mentor local residents within the community.

3. Build A Better Team.

Giving employees an avenue to give back is important to morale and builds a collaborative and inspired team. A business can show its support for the community by giving employees a specific amount of time each month, quarter, or year for volunteer work.

4. Let customers know how you’re giving back.

Once you’ve put together a plan for your company, let your clients know what you’re doing and how you are supporting your local community by including this information on your website, newsletter, and posts on social media.
