Today businesses are awakening to the fact that positively contributing to and participating in the world around them isn’t just the right thing to do–it’s simply smart business. However, most businesses struggle to evolve their community engagement beyond the traditional checkbook philanthropy model: an approach that fails to tap into the business prowess to make a meaningful difference, and has only moderate impact on employee morale, societal causes and business performance. At the same time, nonprofits are finding that their usual development and fundraising programs aren’t enough.
Corporate and nonprofit leaders are transforming their relationships and exploring creative win-win partnerships that move from “passive” giving to “active” contributions through skilled resources, sustainable practices and community engagement. Business4Better brings together a community of large corporations, medium enterprises and nonprofits to truly define mutually beneficial partnerships and demonstrate that Business4Better always makes for better businesses and communities.
