Imagine going to non-profits and saying, “hey what can we give you so that you have more time and money to do the good work that you are best at?” What do you think they would say? Furniture? Clothes? Printing services? Yes. Yes. And Yes. But there are a TON of other items and services that non-profits have to pay for regularly to ensure that they can best serve the people they support. Additionally, when they look for donations, it’s rare that they are successful at getting an item donated following the first ask.
Drum roll please…. (obvious transition, but bear with me)
Here at Zealous Good we want to do that for non-profits. We want to find out what they need and we want to find people and companies who want to give it to them (and therefore make the world a better place, clearly).
In the next weeks we’ll be sharing more about our pilot program where we are working with a select group of amazing Lincoln Park non-profits and helping them lower their bottom line while giving their community the opportunity to step up, support them, and be recognized for it.
So we aren’t just talking furniture, clothes and printing services anymore. We are talking software and technology updates, top soil, uniform cleaning and rental, crock pots, flooring and close to everything in between.
Do you think your company could donate something? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org – there are a lot of perks besides “doing good” (although that sure is nice) and we will make sure everyone and their mom (or more specifically your customers) know that you have donated in your community and made it a better place.
