When local businesses and nonprofits partner, each has the potential to reap plenty of benefits. The business can see a boost in sales be recognized in the community while the nonprofit can build greater awareness of its cause and potentially expand its donor base. These partnerships are a win-win situation.
The Business Benefits of Partnering with a Nonprofit
For many local businesses, deciding to partner with a nonprofit may seem like a disconnect, especially when trying to bring value to their brand and increase the bottom line. But that is far from the truth.
Even More Benefits Of Partnering With A Nonprofit
Local businesses feel the pressure and responsibility to give back and be involved in local issues and organizations. One of the ways they can help nonprofits and engage others at the same time is by creating company matching programs. In these programs, the company matches individual donations allowing the donations to quickly add up. Matching programs are an effective way to increase the support you give to a nonprofit and more including:
- Encourages employees, staff, and business partners to join your efforts to make a difference in the community
- Makes raising funds and awareness easier than without a matching program
- Demonstrates your commitment to others and your community
- Allows you to build awareness campaigns, fundraising efforts, and team-building activities to benefit others
Choosing KSC As A Nonprofit Partner
Most people know an older adult and understand the struggles that come with advancing age and living alone. Throughout our 46-year history, we’ve partnered with hundreds of local businesses who want to help us care for seniors.
Kane Senior Council (KSC) initiates, delivers, monitors, and coordinates services that promote the ability of older persons to live their lives in dignity. The issues our seniors face – like hunger, loneliness, and isolation – are often hidden in plain sight. Part of our mission is to educate others on these issues and to generate the awareness and support needed to bring about real solutions.
In normal times, seniors are susceptible to health-related issues related to social isolation. Since COVID-19, seniors are seeing fewer people and don’t see family and friends as often.
Seniors living alone are susceptible to health-related issues related to social isolation. Since COVID-19, seniors see even fewer people, including less family and friends.
One study shared by AARP said, “Nursing home residents and staff are less than 1% of the U.S. population, yet they make up about 40% of COVID-19 fatalities, setting a record-breaking death rate of roughly 1 in 65 residents lost per month.”

We rely on grants and donations, not tax-payers, to fund the services we provide. By partnering with KSC, your organization can ensure that seniors who need our services will receive them.
