Giving Back with Give to the Max Day 2018 and More

‘Tis the sea­son for giv­ing, and at Bell­mont Part­ners, we’re all about it. Today is Minnesota’s giv­ing hol­i­day – Give to the Max Day – and our non­prof­it prac­tice group has been busy help­ing clients pre­pare for the big day. From strate­giz­ing with 2017’s top-of-the-leader­board Sec­ond Har­vest Heart­land for the “Pack to the Max” event, in which vol­un­teers are pack­ing food dona­tions all 24 hours today, to assist­ing MnFIRE in prepar­ing mate­ri­als to par­tic­i­pate in Give to the Max for the first time and many more orga­ni­za­tions in between, we’re excit­ed to help our non­prof­it clients seize the oppor­tu­ni­ty to raise aware­ness of their work along with rais­ing funds for their causes.

We even got a jump on giv­ing back this month by spon­sor­ing the inau­gur­al Tech Impact Day in Min­neapo­lis on Novem­ber 9. The day fea­tured demos by com­pa­nies who work in the non­prof­it field – includ­ing Bell­mont Part­ners – and in-depth work­ing ses­sions that paired com­pa­nies with non­prof­its to strate­gize and imple­ment tech-relat­ed ini­tia­tives. Vol­un­teers from our team were paired with Great Riv­er Green­ing and Women Against Mil­i­tary Mad­ness to con­sult on social media projects. It was a high-impact day, and we were inspired by the turnout of pro­fes­sion­als from the for-prof­it and non­prof­it sec­tors to col­lab­o­rate on issues that will help orga­ni­za­tions move their mis­sions forward.

At Bell­mont Part­ners, we’re deeply invest­ed in our com­mu­ni­ties and are pas­sion­ate about how we can put our com­mu­ni­ca­tions exper­tise to work for a wide vari­ety of caus­es and ini­tia­tives. In addi­tion to our ongo­ing work with non­prof­it clients and our par­tic­i­pa­tion in events such as Tech Impact Day, we also have a year­long pro­gram called Bell­mont Gives Back. Through this pro­gram, each employ­ee can devote a set amount of hours per month to vol­un­teer their tal­ents to orga­ni­za­tions that are impor­tant to them as indi­vid­u­als. As we heard at Tech Impact Day, this type of “skilled vol­un­teer­ing” is a grow­ing, sought after type of giv­ing back that can tru­ly help non­prof­its real­ize their missions.

As Min­neso­ta cel­e­brates Give to the Max Day, we encour­age you to con­sid­er a dona­tion to your favorite orga­ni­za­tions and to learn about and sup­port non­prof­its that may be new to you. To give you a few ideas, here’s a sam­pling of the non­prof­its we’ve worked with or vol­un­teered with in the past that are par­tic­i­pat­ing in Give to the Max Day:
