Hi, today I am going to share a couple of different ways in which you can make financial donations to support charities and social causes through your business.
So the first one is to base the amount that you donate upon the percentage of profits or sales that you make within the particular time frame, or it could be a particular amount from a particular product. So it is all dependent upon, if you like, the sales that are actually happening, the sales transactions. So if you are going to do that make sure you check out the other videos that I have on a topic called cause marketing, but in essence it is a way in which you can calculate. So you can calculate the amount based upon the value of sales that you make, or profits that you make.
Alternatively, you may want to take a more ad-hoc approach where you just, at the end of every month or every quarter, decide how much money you are going to donate. So you could do that, and just make regular ad-hoc payments.
If you want to be more regular in your donations and charitable giving it's very similar to what we might do personally. You could be setting up some kind of standing order or regular payment with the particular cause that you want to support. So, in actual fact, the way in which we donate through our businesses in terms of working out how much money to raise is very similar to what we might do personally, other than we want to link it to the value of our sales or profits.
I hope you've found that helpful, and if you have and you want to find out other ways in which you can support charities and social causes through your business check out the other videos that are on my YouTube channel and on the Give to Profit Facebook fan page, or you could always check out my blog or Give to Profit book as well. Thanks very much for your time, I look forward to connecting with you again.
