Making corporate charity donations through company profits
Allocating a percentage of company profits to cancer research is a wonderful way to grow corporate charity donations, while meeting your social responsibility strategies.
This corporate charity donation option often involves a longer-term commitment over a year or perhaps more. In this way, even the smallest percentage of proceeds can accumulate into a life-changing amount for cancer patients and their families.
Alternatively, your company can approach the charity donation as a one-off or short-term pledge, with a percentage of proceeds collected on a specific day, week or special occasion.
Corporate charity donations through retail proceeds:
Streetsmart Marketing recently held two conferences in Brisbane and Sydney, pledging to contribute the base ticketing price to the Australian Cancer Research Foundation and raising an incredible total of $70,000 for world-class cancer research.
With his mentor having sadly passed away from cancer, Anh Do pledged 1% of proceeds from his top-selling “The Happiest Refugee”. In three years, this seemingly humble contribution has now amounted to more than $98,000!
Charity Greeting Cards has a well established corporate charity donation scheme, whereby the ACRF receives a percentage of sales from greeting cards and gift hampers. First joining the ACRF in the fight against cancer in 2000, their donation total has now exceeded $105,000!
Corporate giving through service proceeds:
Cancer Care has developed a unique personal health insurance that covers more types of cancers than many other policies, and offers various levels of cover. Plus, 10% of all premiums are donated to the Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF).
GoThat is a daily deals site with a difference. Gothat selects the best discount deals from the top Group Buying, daily deal sites and offers them in one email. Even better, they also donate 50% of their commission on these sales to charities like the ACRF – chosen by their customers at time of sign-up.
ShareGift Australia provides shareholders with a convenient and cost-effective way to sell and then donate parcels of shares that would normally be expensive to trade. ShareGift Australia can sell shares which can then assist a wide range of Australian charities (including the ACRF) by the shareholder recommending a charity.
