My friend Dan is launching a great organization called Triangle Gives Back with the goal of engaging corporations in the Triangle area of North Carolina to give more back to the community. The Triangle area ranks highly in many national lists that compare quality of living, education, business climate, universities, etc but its rankings for philanthropy are a little further down the list. Triangle Gives Back will be a hub for businesses, employees, organizations, and individuals to discuss opportunities for giving and partnering across the divide between for-profit and not-for-profit sectors.
As one specific example, businesses will pledge discounts to qualified member not-for-profit organizations who can then take advantage of the service or product discounts. Preation has pledged a discount for Eden Platform’s monthly subscription cost to Triangle Gives Back. Under this arrangement Triangle based charitable organizations can optimize their websites with no technical or marketing expertise required at a low and discounted cost. Eden Platform is offered with no setup fee and no term commitment so not-for-profit organizations can rest easy knowing that Preation has entirely removed the risk from the process of optimizing a website for the search engines. Non-profit organizations use Eden Platform to reduce cost and delays, empower staff and volunteers, and expand the reach and influence of their missions online.
