Corporations Require a Business Rationale for Charity

Donations Qualify as Tax Deductions and Enhance Your Reputation

When is a gift charity? When is it an investment? When a corporate donor decides to donate excess inventory to EALgreen, that gift qualifies as both. Offering a business solution that simultaneously improves the bottom line and assists the supply chain with inventory management, EALgreen serves as a trusted nonprofit partner to a growing network of corporations with surplus goods. Those goods are then distributed to colleges and universities that purchase the equipment and supplies the campuses need to operate. Colleges and universities convert the money they save on their EAL purchases into scholarships for students with financial need. Products unsuitable for use by college and university campuses are sold to generate additional cash for student scholarships.

When corporate donors choose EALgreen as their charity of choice, these contributions of tangible goods support higher education resulting in sound business outcomes:
Encouraging desirable outcomes:
  • Simplify the disposal of unwanted material
  • Qualify for eligible tax reductions
  • Boost your company’s reputation
  • Contribute to a better educated and more diverse workforce

Thank you for my generous scholarship.

My goal is to earn an MBA in the field of Human Resources and I just competed successfully in a SHRM (Society of Human Resource Management) competition. (I’m second from the right in the photo).
