Impact 4 Good Celebrates 10th YearJuly 11th, 2016, Bethesda, MD – Impact 4 Good, a “Philanthropic Team Building” company with offices in Maryland, New Jersey and event staff nationwide is celebrating 10 years in the meetings industry with the launch of a newly redesigned website, new corporate logo, and a new tagline. The new branding efforts reflect the company’s commitment to the ongoing growth of philanthropic events as part of the corporate business adoption of Corporate Social Responsibility, or CSR, continuing to become a core value for many companies.
Impact 4 Good provides companies across North America with full service planning and implementation of team building activities for corporate meetings and events with a “give back” philanthropic element. Employees and co-workers come together to participate in activities that make an impact on local community organizations in need. Most programs range from 30 minutes to two hours and benefit many different causes, such as fighting hunger, to literacy and education to creating gifts for children in hospitals dealing with serious illnesses.
“Our rebranding and new tagline, ‘Connecting Corporations & Communities’ helps to illustrate our ongoing commitment to the growth of this industry,” stated Alan Ranzer, co-founder and managing partner of Impact 4 Good. “When we began 10 years ago, we started with the single goal of bringing community service into the meetings industry. Today, current industry statistics state that more than 2 out of 3 meeting planners are integrating CSR into their meetings, so it’s clear that this is not a passing trend, but a core business practice for many companies. Our new tagline and rebranding focuses on going beyond meetings and events, and really helping corporations connect with communities where their employees and customers live and work.
Impact 4 Good works with charitable organization beneficiaries across the US and internationally. “Creating these significant alliances with our beneficiary organizations, and seeing the results of our events has definitely been a rewarding part of our history,” said Ranzer. During the company’s 10 years, they have tracked the number of items donated via each event, just some of which include:
- 3500 bicycles built for deserving children who have never owned a bicycle
- Over 8800 school supply backpacks to give students the tools to learn and grow
- Over 9000 Red Cross basic needs hygiene care kits assembled for times of personal tragedy or natural disaster
- More than 11,000 solar car kits prepared for students to build and learn about early engineering and STEM education
- Over 1,000 bookshelves for schools and after school programs to surround children with the tools for greater literacy
- Over 400,000 meals donated to community food banks
Impact 4 Good’s client base includes start-ups to Fortune 500 companies. Destination Management Companies (DMC’s), Incentive Houses, 3rd Party Planning companies and hoteliers also utilize their services for their own clients. “In some cases we are hired as a transparent partner, simply to create and run an event for a third party. Because of our years of experience, we have this down to a science which helps to be a valuable industry resource.”
Ranzer also added, “As our client base has grown, so has the number of locations where we are easily able to provide activities. Our team has worked everywhere from ballrooms and boardrooms in the US, to orchestrating full-scale events in Europe, the Caribbean, Central America and beyond.”
The company is also seeing more requests for pure philanthropic activities, as more companies work to create CSR opportunities within their meetings. Ranzer stated, “These days we are getting many requests for events that are purely philanthropic, without the competitive team building element. Events where participants can learn about a cause and jump into the opportunity to do good during a lunch break, or on a meeting arrival day. After 10 years of designing these events, we can create philanthropic opportunities no matter the location or length of available time on the agenda. Our new tagline reflects these changes in that we offer more than just teambuilding activities that give back, that we are here to help our clients put their philanthropic values into action whether during the meeting agenda or in their hometown community.”
