Four For Friday for Entrepreneurs - The Giving Back Edition
Q2 - Volunteering: About 61.8 million Americans, (26.4 percent of the adult population) donated eight billion hours of volunteer service worth $162 billion the last time such figures where tallied. Does your company give employees paid time off to volunteer in the community?
Q3 - Starting Up: If someone offered you a large sum of money for your company (enough that you could retire and never have to work again) but the offer came with the stipulation that you must start a new nonprofit and work in that organization for at least one year, would you take the offer? If so, what type of nonprofit would you start?
Q4 - Cause Marketing: If you could afford to make a public donation of a portion of your company's sales to a nonprofit, what cause would you support? Do you think such an act would differentiate you within your market or provide such a return on investment that doing so would make good business sense?
