In addition to individuals, Richmond Community Foundation is inviting small and large companies to be part of the We Give 2013 action. Businesses who commit to participating in the event by August 1, 2013, will have their logo be included on the www.WeGive2Richmond.org home page, and the name of their company listed on the donation page. Those companies with the highest percentage of employee giving will receive special public recognition after the event. We Give 2013! will have a beneficial impact for both corporate and nonprofits alike; it will help companies gain recognition as strong corporate citizens within the community, while helping nonprofits continue to be of service to those who need them the most. Employees will also benefit from this great giving event by connecting to and supporting those causes they most care about.
There are several ways in which companies no matter what size or what type of business it is can help and participate in our giving event. Car Dealerships and restaurants, can donate a percentage of the proceeds from all car sales and meals sold during the hours of We Give-2013! Retailers can host a donation box in their stores so customers can contribute to We Give-2013! The possibilities are endless!
Remember to mark your calendar for this great giving event, it's time that we show how grateful we are to the organizations helping those in need in our communities.
