Garver became a Hearts & Hooves supporter in 2014, and committed to being a Silver Heart Sponsor for 3 years. In addition, Garver employees have jumped on board to volunteer for Hearts & Hooves in a variety of ways. They are true community supporters, and we are so thankful for them! Their commitment to their community is exemplary; we love to see corporate sponsors who choose local charitable giving, and who encourage their employees to volunteer! Why is the three year committment beneficial to either the donor or Hearts & Hooves? I'm so glad you asked!
Top 4 reasons to give as part of a multi-year committment...
1. Easier Budget Creation
For a corporate donor, while planning the coming year's budget, knowing what financial committments have already been made can make your charitiable giving planning easier and more efficient. Why review requests each year? If you've found a wonderful community partner (like Hearts & Hooves!), staying in a committed relationship can make your planning sessions a breeze.
2. Community Partnerships
Different businesses have different fiscal years, meaning that your chartiable giving may not coincide with the recipient's marketing schedule. Having a multi-year relationship allows that nonprofit to shout your praises knowing that you're committed to them for more than just the current season. It's easier to get and keep your name and logo on their website, annual report, special event publications and social media outlets when they know you're committed for the coming year. This ensures that your name gets out to the community at every opportunity, and that your market sees your committment to their community.
3. Increased Impact Through Sustainable Giving
This is the big one... Nonprofits like Hearts & Hooves are dependent on donations to operate. Knowing that they can count on a set amount of income helps them plain their year. Can we afford to expand our services in the coming year? Do we have enough money to purchase this much-needed equipment? Will we be able to pay all of our bills? These are questions that are immediately answered when that nonprofit knows what to expect in their bank account. In other words, that committement to them for 3, 5 or 10 years let's us plan how we can be most effective, where we can grow or how we should grow. Multi-year committments allow us to serve more people, and make a bigger impact in the community.
