I have promoted NJ MET’s charity program for the past 15 years. At our company, like many others, charitable giving is part direct contributions from the company and part employee and customer fundraising. Our employees and customers are incredibly supportive of our fund raising efforts.
I believe that corporate charity programs are important for lots of reasons – helping the community, increasing employee morale, developing employees’ leadership skills, are just a few. Corporate charity is a great example of doing well by doing good.
I hope to encourage other businesses to embark on, or expand, their own charity programs by sharing ideas and suggestions on how to make a program work. I’ll include specific activities that have worked at NJ MET as well as point to creative ideas from across the internet.
