Aloha Construction’s ten-year CEO Dave Farbaky recently had the opportunity to speak with Daily Forex Report about the importance of small businesses giving back to the community and their favorite methods of doing such. Farbaky expressed that if it wasn’t for the community building these small businesses up in one way or another, they wouldn’t exist; the biggest thanks you can provide is to give back.
Most small businesses understand that donations are tax deductible, and if you apply that to local organizations it will drastically help your PR among community members. When you have positively affected someone’s life near you, they are highly likely to give back by visiting your establishment when the time is right for them. Another way to bring attention to your services and your brand is by sponsoring events. Anyone attending the event will see your brand and be more likely to at least check your services out.
A favorite method of giving back is by getting involved with local organizations your business feels connected to. It’s the easiest place to start if charity work is new to you. Do a quick google or yelp search and you will easily find all the organizations and volunteer opportunities in your area. You are bound to find something that you can find passion in. It’s important to feel like you identify with the organization; by continuing to support them and their goals you will form a solid relationship. Their gratitude will be shared through imagery, word of mouth, and interconnecting. While you are helping your community out, you will also be helping your own business grow and improve.
Once you get a handle on how charity work is done, and how non-profit organizations find a way to complete their objectives, you can consider starting your own charity organization. Some of the benefits of creating your own charity group is you can guarantee that your charitable objectives are met efficiently and to your standards, it shows you have a desire to do more with the company than increase profits, and it lets your community know what you’re contributing to your customers well being.
CEO Farbaky created Farbaky Foundation which funds events for children in his community. One of their most memorable contributions was for a family in need, in which the community came together with Farbaky Foundation and helped a family go on a shopping spree for the first time in their lives. Besides helping families near and dear to the towns they work in, they provide efficient and affordable construction work in Illinois and Wisconsin. They provide free property inspections and even offer financing on roof repair.
