Summer took the quick road out of town and we are mere weeks from the start of the holiday season. That’s the time, according to a recent Manta poll, that small business owners dig deep and give big. More than 70 percent of respondents said that they donated to some sort of charity last year. Charitable businesses can make the grade with employees and customers—it can help build employee morale and it’s the perfect way to show you’re invested in your community. Start by researching charities (so you understand where the money goes and to make sure you can receive a tax deduction), and keep records of donations. You can give away a portion of holiday sales, partner with a favorite charity or start a food drive for your neighborhood—the possibilities are endless! (Manta.com)
