Welcome! I’m glad you’re here.
I am Marie McNamara and I have spent my life as a strong supporter of the underdog.
When I say underdog, I don’t just mean the impoverished or disenfranchised – I mean the little guy. The team in last place. The car with 250K miles. The Community Bank. The small business trying to compete with big corporations. Which are all reasons why I am here.
I won’t bore you with my resume, but as we see a positive trend in large companies towards Corporate Social Responsibility, I see smaller businesses struggle to maintain similar philanthropic endeavors while keeping their employee engagement high. Most of the time, if the company has a Community Outreach Coordinator or Engagement Manager, they are also the Head of HR or the Marketing Supervisor. Typically, these big-hearted employees have assumed these responsibilities, but realistically don’t have the time to complete them. In the end, the good intentions of the company don’t yield the hoped-for results. When small companies aren’t looking strategically at their CSR Plan, they miss the opportunity to both do-good and improve their bottom line. These thoughtful ambitions keep getting pushed to the bottom of the pile. Moved on the calendar to next month… Next quarter… You get the drift.
That’s where I can help.
As your organization’s outsourced consultant, I will collaborate with you to strategically plan your Social Responsibility program. I can help you to define giving and engagement opportunities that align with your business goals. Together, we can match you with local non-profits and community partners, as well as measure your impact. I am able to take on these tasks, so that your company is more productive and your employees are happier.
GOODforBusiness, LLC will donate a percentage of their fees to The Institute of Living’s Treatment Programs for Children & Adolescents. We know all too well the problems that can stem from undiagnosed mental health issues in children. These programs enable mental-health professionals to work with parents and educators in order to support young people with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges. This early intervention results in more well-adjusted students and steers them to a path of leading a successful life.
Thank you for listening and I look forward to meeting with you.
