Part of the MICAH:6, Inc Mission outlines the company view on charitable giving:
“By generously giving to organizations, projects and causes, MICAH:6, Inc promotes philanthropy within the local and world-wide economies.”
We have recently launched our unique “10 for 10” giving campaign to help meet this mission objective. Every year, MICAH:6, Inc gives an average of 10% of all revenue to a variety of local, national and international charities. We want to expand our reach and encourage other small businesses to give as well.
Our primary goal with this campaign is to highlight some amazing organizations through the US and around the world, and give them a little extra attention. A secondary purpose is to encourage other small businesses to step up their community giving efforts by matching our donations.
Here’s how the “10% for 10 organizations” works. Each quarter, we list (10) non-profit organizations on the bottom of every invoice that MICAH:6, Inc sends out. From this list, our clients can select which organizations receive 10% of the balance they are paying. Our clients can choose to have the full 10% of the invoice donated to one organization, or split that 10% between several or all 10 organizations listed. They will also have the option to match our 10% to double the donation impact.
