Philanthropist, Stephen Dowicz, Shares Five Easy Philanthropic Activities to Start Giving Back

NORWALK, Conn., Sept. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Philanthropist, Stephen Dowicz, shares five easy philanthropic activities to start giving back.

Companies that wish to practice philanthropy should go about the process carefully. Choose a cause that you are passionate about—your employees and customers will recognize your sincerity and hopefully respond in kind. Even though you will receive recognition and free publicity for your generosity, never forget that giving your time and money is a reward in and of itself. Here are some simple philanthropic activities you can try to start giving back.

Make a cash donation. This is one of the easiest methods to start giving back. Pick a favorite charity and write a check—your generosity will be immediately appreciated.

Sponsor an event. There is nothing like a special event to raise money in a short time. Sponsor a golf tournament, race, or something similar. Hold a pasta dinner, car wash, or bake sale. The fundraising possibilities are endless!

Match employee donations. Companies that wish to practice philanthropy can offer to match monetary contributions from employees and customers. This is a great way to encourage employees to donate to important causes.

Volunteer with employees. Charities and non-profits rely strongly on their volunteer bases. Choose a cause that is important to you, sign up, and encourage your employees to do the same. Buy "team" T-shirts and hand them out before the event.

Sell logoed merchandise. Once a charity is chosen, order merchandise with both the charity's logo and your company's logo. T-shirts, hats, pencils/pens, and pins are just some examples of items you can sell on your website or in your company store. Donate the proceeds from the sales to the charity.

Offer special discounts. Discounts and similar promotions can be offered to anyone who is either a member of—or contributes to—your designated charity, Stephen M. Dowicz notes. Donate to the charity afterward. The resulting positive feelings that you and your employees will experience will be worth your efforts.

Provide equipment and/or space. Many charities work with outdated equipment or limited space to carry out their work. Consider donating gently used furniture and computers, or offering a spare meeting room for occasional meetings.
