What is cause marketing?
This is a form of marketing in which a company and a charity team up together to tackle a social or environmental problem and create business value for the company at the same time. Typically, in cause-related marketing campaigns, a brand is affiliated with a cause and a portion of the proceeds from the sales of the brand is donated to the cause.
How does this benefit your business?
Cause marketing partnerships with the Arkansas Foodbank can provide opportunities to gain exposure for your organization, while raising awareness and funds for our neighbors in need.
