It's good business to support a charity - proven by the repeat support we have received

Many large corporations have programs for social responsibility and community involvement, and it is a great idea for small businesses, too.

One of the best ways to give your business a good image is to demonstrate a socially responsible ethos by support for charitable causes. It can help to increase employee morale; and make people think more positively about your business when they have to choose where to place their custom. In larger groups the team building aspect is invaluable to the business and other benefits include:

Community support and good will benefits all businesses
Brand awareness as charity and non-profit groups usually have some sort of recognition program as we do at AFTAID.
Having your business name mentioned is good promotion. People are more apt to support businesses they feel are part of their world.
The opportunity to support causes you believe in. It is great if you can tie your business purpose to a particular charity, but if you cannot, you can pick a charity or community group that you are passionate about and support them.
All in all, supporting a charity or non-profit group can help your business grow, but most of all, it can be a great way to give back to your community and help support causes that need your help.

Our thanks will be prominent

When a commercial donor benefits AFTAID with their support, we are as happy to receive the donations as we are from the individuals who support our vital work. Unlike the individuals though, we are able to spread the thanks to all our supporters through our information channels - website and Bright Side Newsletter. These are seen by a body of general public as well as many professional people who work in the caring professions.

We are happy to answer any questions you may have either by email click here, or write or telephone/fax:

"We felt we couldn't stand by and not help. This year, we adopted a charity, Aid for the Aged in Distress. AFTAID, for short. It endeavours to provide immediate help when requested, from some of the most vulnerable and unimaginably hard up people in the country. Namely, elderly people who are destitute."
MD of Silverfleet Capital
