I've been spending a lot of time recently developing a new service under the umbrella of LRCConsulting. This service will help small to medium sized corporations and high net worth individuals give their money, goods, and time away more intentionally. After all of these years helping nonprofits be intentional about their seeking, it seems symmetrical to look at the other side. Over the next two months, my associate, Katie Raley and I will be meeting with owners of local businesses to see why and how they give. Our hunch is that giving particularly here locally is fairly random and lacks the focus and impact of a more thoughtful approach. My hope is that in working with local companies my firm will benefit nonprofits as they seek donations. They will find companies will clear guidelines and a clear mission that will help a local agency find people that care about what they care about.
