Most companies give to non-profits without looking at the business implications of their donations. They become involved in the chamber without a game plan for making it work. A year later, when the ask or renewal comes, they either write another check or give up, saying “I didn’t get anything out of it.”
Alan Byrd & Associates is here to help organizations weave through the daily asks for sponsorships, donations and memberships, finding the organizations you want to support and creating a plan to make sure you AND the organization benefit.
