HOW TO: Decide Which Charities Your Business Should Support
Businesses are willing to give, but are often confused as to which causes might be best for them. A successful match can lead to a fulfilling partnership and helping others, while a mismatch may lead to disaster. Businesses can build stronger relationships with their stakeholders through their charitable endeavors. Helping others while helping themselves can lead businesses to bigger profits.
Here are some quick tips and pro advice for helping your business choose the right charities to support.


New Site to Discover:

TED

“Riveting talks by remarkable people, free to the world.” TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design.

Executive Tip:

Counting Isn’t Measuring

Well, ok, counting alone is not what I’d call effective measurement. Your measurement deserves more.

Social Media Tidbit:

Google Hires a Tech Blogger

That’s right. Even bloggers can get hired at Google. Caroline McCarthy, a social media writer at CNET, announced through her blog today that she will soon be joining the Google ranks in New York as a member of its incipient “Trends and Insights Team”. Sounds investigative.

Human Side – Community:

Brownilympics! Sponsors and Supporters needed.

Brownilympics is a day of fun and competition styled after the real Olympics, where the philosophy is to build self worth in each participant. The motto of Brownilympics is “Every Girl Goes Home a Winner”. This year’s event is set for May 1st 2011 at Placerita Junior High School. Approximately 800 brownie girls participate along with 1,200+ parents, grandparents, friends and neighbors who also come to join in the celebration and support the girls.
