According to research from whatimpact.com, a third of companies are struggling to find a CSR partner.
The main reasons cited are:
- Lack of connections
- Budget constraints
- Lack of time to research and develop a CSR programme
So can you do more to make yourselves more attractive to potential CSR partners?
Could you perhaps:
- Run awareness events (virtual and in person) to help build connections
- Find non-financial ways that a company to satisfy its CSR objectives whilst helping you to deliver your impact
- Offer simple options and programmes that make it easy for a company to partner with you?
