Business Solutions To Community Progress
Let’s take a look at who in the business world supports community development. Many businesses are very active in promoting housing and work-based programs that increase both the awareness and financial support of social community programs. These programs such as Habitat For Humanity, which builds homes for the under privileged, and the United Way Homes for Life Program are all good examples of business and community members working together.
By bringing together these needed resources and the financial backing of the more wealthy companies we build a partnership to solve community problems in both urban areas and the rural population too. Businesses have more freedom to be create change and innovation than what our government is able to do.
The innovators combined with the ceo s of all size companies contribute a combined total of 83 percent of all donations to community sponsored reinvestment programs such as the ones previously listed and many more. Forbes Magazine ranks Fortune 500 list companies that share and contribute the most to community reinvestment and new development by a ladder profile. Companies like McDonalds, Starbucks, Panera Bread, Exxon Mobil, CVS Pharmacy, Shaw’s Supermarkets and many others contribute more per capital in donations and sponsorships than all the others out there.
Most Chambers of Commerce and local and national business groups are heavy involved in civic development and support of charity and community reinvestment. When business and civic organizations join together they are better able to address and manage problems both at the local and national level when there is a need to be filled.
The engine of business is the leaders and problem solvers who can put forward both financial and intellectual resources to get the job done and solve community problems from a more efficient and stable platform than can most any other vehicle that is available.
Looking at cooperative ventures with people of all types shows how businesses can be the catalyst for great changes in a community. They can offer a fresh opportunity for outreach to community leaders and provide more suggestions and solve problems that otherwise would be left to the back burner or never tackled at all. Partnership in a world of everyday change means that you can have both businesses and civic organizations working together to achieve common goals to solve issues that benefit both sides.
Doing this helps us achieve a better community through private business outsourcing, in partnership with civic groups. You are then able to grow a very nice urban or rural landscape that is both aesthetic and functional while also creating new jobs and homes where more people will want to stay and raise their families for all future generation to come. Business is always the solution and will continue to be that functional piece that drives innovative ideas in a inter connected world that we currently live in this millennium.. Businesses are the ones who reach out to better persons lives in concert with government and civic organizations, so that we can grow a better future for everyone.
