Corporate partnerships are an important aspect of Florence Crittenton’s fundraising efforts, and bring great value to both FCH and businesses. We are all part of the communities we serve, often times even serving the same clients. By partnering together we can offer a more cohesive set of services to clients, increase community awareness, and maintain sustainability in all local business practices.
In addition, business alignment with non-profit work (cause marketing) is a viable option for retaining customers, with 85% of Americans reporting they have a more positive image of a product or company when it supports a cause (Source: Cone/Duke University Behavioral Cause Study)
