Know you're helping neighbors. Consider holding a fundraiser auction at your
employee picnic. Donate the proceeds to your favorite local charity.
See tangible results. One day a year, send your staff into the community
to do volunteer work. Clean a park. Paint a wall.
Connect with your community. Hold a voter registration drive. Help your employees
and customers make a difference in their communities. Remind them they have a voice
in their government.
Share your expertise. Select a charity that aligns with your mission. For
example, a grocer who supports a food bank or an investment firm that offers free
budgeting and finance classes at the local community center.
