There are 5.7 million small and medium-sized businesses in the UK, and they are the lifeblood of the economy. If you’re reading this, you may even be one of them!
Many of us donate to charity personally. In fact, 43% of UK charities’ income is from individuals. However, only 2% of charities’ income is from businesses.
In the UK we just need 1 in 20 businesses to give 1% of their income to create £1 billion of new charitable funding every year! Could you become part of this story?
Here are examples of some small, but brilliant businesses who are making a real impact:
- Hatchlings Makes donates 10% of every order to wildlife conservation charities and has so far raised over £500 for charity!
- Pattie & Co donates £5 from the sale of every Organic Cotton Muslin Swaddle to Tommy’s baby loss charity
- Plans with Purpose donate 2% of their fees to charities related to their work and passions
If you’ve ever thought about giving back to society through your business — 5% of every invoice you raise, or 50p from each of your product sales — now’s the time to make it happen.
Linking donations to the sales of your goods or services is an easy way to demonstrate to your customers and clients that you’re a business who believes giving back to society is important.
Let us help you.
Choose a charity to support and set up your first donation. We’ll give you a public profile to tell your giving story. We’ll then help you share it with your customers, clients and on your social networks.
This summer we are giving away free accounts to new businesses. Use the code: SUMMER19. This is a limited offer until 31st July.
“Brands and businesses that build doing good into their core have the potential to grow with a deeper meaning and stronger connection to employees and consumers alike, making them more likely to succeed now and in the future.”
