The Action Plan

Print or PDF
An intellectually based, empirically proven method of maximizing wealth and spreading it most widely through an emotionally satisfying advocacy.

Step One: Conduct a Survey
-A study of the history of and motivation for business charity to set the stage for encouraging business giving based on “enlightened self interest” – a company prospering by helping others.
-The emphasis will be on to what extent business giving is more consistent with the aims of the giver, as well as more plentiful, effective & permanent, if it is in the giver’s best interests and produces:

  1. better qualified, more reliable, more loyal and more productive employees,
  2. uniquely powerful marketing opportunities, and
  3. A more prosperous community and economy.

The result can be:

  1. an expanding supply of increasingly meaningful jobs
  2. a better life for the beneficiaries, all to the betterment of the company, community and nation.

Step Two: encourage Charity Consistent with the Free Enterprise System by:

  1. quantifying the extent that businesses have flourished due to adoption of this win/win policy
  2. as a way to encourage others to follow this uniquely American means of economic progress,
  3. and then create a strategic plan to help more businesses implement the business strategy.

Step Three: Eliminate violation of Donor Intent through showing that if the funding entity is the business which creates the funds, then two benefits result:

  1. the motivation to continue funding is permanent,
  2. the risk of donor intent being abridged is far lower.
