Community involvement makes good business sense: studies show that when companies start contributing to their communities, they reap the rewards in many ways. Giving back to your community is a reward in itself. But you're also likely to draw potential team members and customers with a like-minded community focus.
"More than 80 percent of company respondents report that community involvement contributes to improving ability to recruit employees and reduce turnover " source: https://ccc.bc.edu/
But it is also a great way for customers with similar values to join your cause and support your business.
You can also collaborate with other businesses. Many companies working together for a common cause. Find other companies that you can partner with that embrace community involvement.
Businesses that give back in ways that they're uniquely qualified to do so make an outsized impact on communities. It does not have to be financial contributions it can be skills (services) / or some of your services.
Find a cause you feel passionate about and get your small business involved!
