Every Company That Donates To Nonprofits

Donate to nonprofits

There are many compelling reasons for companies to donate to nonprofits and charities. Let’s start with the genuine benefits:

  • Companies can turn excess profit into good by donating to charities
  • Companies can support their employees’ volunteer work and charitable contributions through matching
  • It gives employees a sense of purpose in addition to their work

There are also positive albeit slightly more cynical, self-serving reasons, too:

  • Donating to charity as a company helps you attract and retain customers who support the social good
  • Depending on the jurisdiction, there is likely some tax incentive to donating
  • Companies benefit from the free publicity of doing social good (like being mentioned in this post, modestly)

If a company is generating profits, donating to nonprofits can be a win- (for the nonprofits), win- (for the company), win- (for the employees).

Here are all of the notable companies we can find who donate to nonprofits in different ways. We update the list monthly, but I’m sure we still have missed companies – let us know at the bottom of the article if we did.
