Companies can help in many ways and are increasingly aware of the benefits both to staff and customers of association with a charity such as Autism Together.
Companies who give their support to worthy causes achieve increased public perception and appreciation, and see an increase in staff motivation and these positive results will become apparent almost immediately. Moreover any company involvement in charity events and activities will not go unnoticed by the media
The benefits of positive social media mentions and sharing cannot be overstated and while it is less tangible than PR or social media coverage, there is no denying the fact that many consumers make buying decisions based as much on how they feel about a company as on how they feel about a product.
A positive public perception and social media profile can lead to an increase in sales.
The benefits of a corporate charitable involvement are not limited just to customers and suppliers. Keeping staff happy is a priority of all companies and businesses and studies show that charitable giving increases morale, improves employee productivity, ethical behavior and pride in their work.
Staff engaged in fundraising will work better as a team as everyone feels like they are working together toward a common goal and this will positively influence other aspects of their work. The staff essentially become a fundraising group, and organise events which reflect the nature and ethos of the company.
There are so many ways in which a company can support Autism Together.
By making Autism Together the company’s charity of the year generates great interest and can be highly lucrative – particularly if the company agree to match any amount raised by staff.
The list is virtually endless:
Cake bake/Coffee Morning
Undertaking an established event such as Wirral Coastal Walk, 3 Peaks
Give up chocolate/ cigarettes/ nail-biting
Attic Sale/Car Boot
