Why do business with the non-profit sector?

Alliances between the non-profit and business sectors are extremely important because:

  • By working with non-profit organizations, companies identify themselves as good corporate citizens, inspiring customer loyalty and increasing market share - reporting a third bottom line to their consumers.
  • Identifying shared territory between both parties brings mutual benefits - common interests lead to mutual cooperation, which benefits the community as a whole.
  • Aligning a brand to a non-profit organization is a strategic positioning tool that brings mutual benefit for both company and cause.
