How Matching Gifts Unlock Fundraising Potential For Nonprofits

Blog

What would you say if we told you that there was a untapped resource at your nonprofit’s fingertips that could have the potential to double your average donation amount? Sounds too good to be true, right? Not so … It actually exists! (And, by the way, it’s free.)

“Matching Gifts” is a phrase covering corporate programs where employers match employee donations, usually dollar-for-dollar. Many charities and nonprofits know about Matching Gifts, but the fundraising potential of these programs often goes overlooked by nonprofits.

Cause Marketing Wall of Shame: Holt Renfrew Edition

Lack of transparency and an old-school playbook make Holt Renfrew’s latest cause marketing campaign so out of style
Summary: 

Alongside the new-retro styles of fall 2012 like the modern geometric Prada and MiuMiu prints and the reinvented lady looks by Louis Vuitton and Valentino, Holt Renfrew’s latest cause marketing campaign is decidedly dated.  Recently, Holt Renfrew and Missoni partnered to create a limited-edition, worldwide-exclusive plush bear and elephant that will support OrphanAid Africa. This cause marketing campaign is the equivalent of a 1988 Christian Lacroix pouf skirt because of its old-school playbook, lack of transparency and cause and consumer mismatch.

Employee Giving: Make it Year Round!

How to Create a Culture of Giving with Workplace Giving Programs that Engage People Every Day, All Year Long
Summary: 

From the Benevity Just BeCause Blog

Existing giving campaigns/programs tend to be seasonal, often limited to one annual fall campaign, but engagement is an ongoing, year-round goal.  Employees are passionate about causes that matter to them all year long, not just in the autumn.  Creating a culture of giving requires workplace giving programs that engage people year-round.  The ultimate goal is to make workplace giving a year round activity, part of the employee experience.  A workplace giving solution that can accommodate both annual campaigns and provide easy-to-administer ongoing opportunities to give back is key.

'It's the Money, Honey': Current Workplace Giving Programs Are Too Costly (And What To Do About It)

How Technology Can Help Companies of All Sizes Realize Greater Impacts From Employee Giving
Summary: 

From the Benevity Just BeCause Blog

We are hearing that current workplace giving programs and technology solutions are too expensive, whether it’s a home-grown solution or third party provider, making it difficult for companies in the mid-market to afford to implement a solution.  Engagement through workplace giving should be available to all employees, not only to individuals working for large companies. Technology can be your friend when it comes to automating manual processes and reducing costs.  Web-based approaches like Software as a Service mean that you don’t need to pay a fortune for workplace giving software.  Whether you’re a large company, mid-cap or growing, spend the money instead on programs and promotion.  This will ultimately impact the metrics that matter to help you realize better social and business impacts from workplace giving.

What the Giving USA 2011 Report Means for Corporate Strategy

5 Ideas for Companies to Do Better Corporate Giving
Summary: 

This week, the Giving USA Foundation released it’s latest report Giving USA 2011: The Annual Report on Philanthropy for the Year 2010. So what are the implications of the new giving data for corporate giving?  And what should companies do about it?  In this post we look at a few of the top takeways and 5 ideas on how companies can do corporate giving better.

Corporate giving makes up 5% of total charitable contributions, despite tons of data that suggests consumers and employees expect more. So with all due respect to fans of Milton Friedman’s view, it seems perfectly clear to us: companies can (and should) do more corporate giving.  And even if they don’t increase their budgets, they should at least do corporate giving better.  New approaches will enable corporations to deliver greater social impacts (read: more dollars donated to more charities) and business benefits (read: tangible effect on the bottom line that creates business case for sustainable and increased investment).  In other words, more and better.  And that’s corporate giving that will help companies that get it to truly "do well by doing good."

How To Take Cause Marketing from "Feel Good" to "Real Good"

A New Approach to Do More Good with Cause Marketing
Summary: 

Doing well by doing good: it’s not just a corporate catch phrase or nice-to-do anymore, it’s a must do for a growing number of businesses. A growing number of consumers expect businesses to not only “do good” but to provide opportunities for them to give back to causes that resonate with them.  And to be more open, innovative and collaborative about how they do it.  Research shows that cause is a purchase trigger and that consumers want more cause marketing offers.  Yet many current cause marketing campaigns are hindered by me-too cause marketing.  So how can cause marketing be more compelling to consumers (not to mention, deliver more impact for charities and businesses alike?) Here's a new approach to cause marketing to Do More Good.
