Events are one of the easiest ways to partner with nonprofits, providing the opportunity to market directly to a target audience and build brand loyalty among that audience. They also allow you to engage your employees with the community around them and build your reputation as a socially responsible business. While nonprofit partnerships can be one of the most lucrative investments your business can make, too often, the potential of that partnership isn’t maximized.
