How to Grow Your Business by Supporting Charities & Causes

Sep 12, 2018 | Events

As a business owner have you ever considered making a social impact?

Maybe you’re a business owner or entrepreneur who already supports charities or social causes personally?

Or a charity or social enterprise that would like more businesses to support you?

Most business owners think they need to wait until they have enough time or money to support causes through their business but the opposite is true. Charitable giving is actually a powerful way to grow your business and do good at the same time. There is no need to wait. In fact, not supporting causes or being able to demonstrate your impact could be sending business to your competition.

This is what Alisoun Mackenzie explains in her book Give-to-Profit: How to Grow Your Business by Supporting Charities and Social Causes and will talk about during this fundraising event.

Whether you’re interested in raising funds for a cause, volunteering, or are simply curious about a more compassionate approach to business, this event will help you turn your business into a profitable force for good. If you’re a leader or fundraiser for a cause, it will also give you valuable insights on how you could attract more business supporters.

Come along to this fundraising event to discover:

  • Why it’s good for businesses to support charities and social causes
  • The 7-Steps for Growing a Business by Supporting Charities & Social Causes

This fundraising event, sponsored by Lindsays WS and Drawn to Learn, will be a mix of welcome drinks, a short keynote presentation by Alisoun Mackenzie, Q&A session, and discussions.


Businesses: £30

Charities and social enterprises: £15

All profits* will be split equally between Rowan Alba and Classroom of Hope.

*The only costs to be deducted from ticket sales proceeds will be Eventbrite costs, Paypal charges, and admin costs, estimated at £50 for the whole event.
