Philanthropy vs Profit

How technology can help businesses to get it right

Today’s consumers, governments and businesses expect the organisations they buy goods and services from to set a higher ethical standard than they may have done in the past. They often look beyond price, products and services; expecting profit-making companies to also address social and environmental issues and make a recognisable contribution to the communities they affect.

In response to this, many organisations have extended their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programmes to include activities that deliver some social good.

Four Questions that businesses should ask themselves

How can businesses ensure that their charitable activities are truly valued by their customers and employees?

How can businesses ensure that the charities they choose to support will epitomise their desired corporate brand image?

What actions can businesses take to close the local charity funding gap?

How can businesses get the information they need, decide which charities to fund and make sure that their money is being used effectively and efficiently to help those who really need it?

How technology will Transform the Charity Sector for Charitable Trusts, Foundations and Businesses

How can grant funders better use technology to collaborate and drive proactive change in the charities where it’s so desperately needed? Digitalisation is answer. It’s the only way that resource-constrained grant funders can proactively and collaboratively solve intractable social problems.
