How Your Startup Can Make a Positive Impact on the Community
Your startup, while you want it to be profitable for you, can also have a positive impact on the community. Your community will be your most important customers so getting involved can make a significant difference for you and them. Some examples of what you can do are to donate to local causes, commission art, and increase community improvements.
Donate to Local Causes
Donating in any manner to local causes helps to better the community, which in turn can build support for your business and build your success. Money is the one thing many people think of when it comes to donations. This can be helpful for the community, however there are other ways you can help. You can also donate your time or your resources. Your employees can participate in local causes and charities, which will make a positive impact for your community and get your name out there. You can donate your resources as well, such as products, to help in local charity events.
Art is an important part of a healthy culture and helps to bring people together. Your startup can make a positive impact on the community by commissioning art. You can commission a local artist to create a mural. Murals can make art more accessible to the public. This also helps to improve the look of your community and gives income to an artist. Commissioning a mural is just one way to make a positive impact. You can also donate to your local art charity and regularly attend exhibitions to provide community support.
Increase Community Improvements
Your small business brings in revenue, which also means that you are going to be paying taxes. Your business will pay taxes locally which means that your tax money will go to the community. Local taxes are used for roads and schools, among other community needs. When your startup does well, this means there are more funds available for such improvements. Your startup goes further than just paying taxes, but it also provides jobs. This helps to increase the wages of the community which can help to better it overall.
Your startup does more than just providing a good or service for your community. It provides jobs, tax revenue, and so much more. You can take an active role as well and participate in being a positive impact in your community.
