BizGives is the first ever website that makes it easy for businesses and foundations to connect with IRS-approved non-profit organizations (NPOs). Companies have the ability to deduct up to 10 percent (http://www.nonprofitlawblog.com/charitable_givi_1/) of their pretax net income. BizGives helps businesses do good by putting them in touch with non-profits that are tax deductible.
BizGives not only helps businesses and foundations partner with the non-profits that are in alignment with company values, but also provides a space where businesses can receive recognition for the good they’re doing to help NPOs around the world. Through BizGives, businesses and foundations can easily search a database of NPOs. The NPOs will list specific causes for sponsorship opportunities, large events, budgetary needs, scholarships or programs within their organization. By using BizGive’s exclusive platform, businesses can now quickly find the best NPOs for long-term, multi-faceted, value-driven partnerships.
BizGives was founded by Tampa resident Kristen Seeley, who has both business and non-profit experience. “As a young girl, I wanted to change the world,” she said. “Through BizGives, I have created a platform that accomplishes that dream. BizGives allows businesses and foundations to change the way they fund non-profits with the click of a button!”
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) shows a corporation’s initiative to assess and take responsibility of their effects on environmental and social well-being. Many companies give to NPOs to take advantage of tax deductions, advance their business objectives, increase corporate visibility and to be good corporate citizens. However, companies should also consider that such acts open up an opportunity to showcase the good work that they’re doing in the community to potential employees and customers. Employees who have a favorable impression of their company’s philanthropic program are five times (https://www.sba.gov/blogs/how-small-businesses-can-get-ta…) more likely to remain with their employer.
The platform created by BizGives will directly affect how nonprofits’ funds are raised and, in turn, save them billions (https://hbr.org/2003/05/the-nonprofit-sectors-100-billion…)per year. Even further, through these newly streamlined channels, NPOs will be able to to allocate the money saved towards the expansion of their budgetary goals.
In order for companies to take advantage of a tax-deductible donation, the non-profit organization needs to be a legal 501c3 and registered with the IRS. BizGives does the legwork for you by providing an extensive listing of every VERIFIED NPO, signified by a checkmark next to each NPO profile that has been approved by the IRS For more information or to sign up, visit www.bizgives.com today.
