Every so often I like to remind our readers that while it is our intention to bring interesting, informative and entertaining content to you each month, ALIVE Magazine also works hand in hand with our community, providing much-needed marketing services to various charitable and cultural non-profits. For example, in this issue alone we have pages for Sentinels of Freedom, White Pony Express, Friends of the Blackhawk Museums, Discovery Counseling Center, the San Ramon Valley Education Foundation, the Lamorinda Film and Entertainment Foundation and the Clayton Theatre Company.
Through the generous support provided by our loyal advertisers over the past ten years, ALIVE Magazine has been able to provide promotional support to over 50 non-profit, community organizations. In essence, the many fine companies that regularly advertise in ALIVE have enabled us to provide in excess of $250,000.00 in promotional and advertising space to these worthy organizations.
On November 1, 2016, we will launch a new program—the ALIVE Help Foundation—that will not only provide in-kind marketing and advertising support, but direct funding to worthwhile local charitable organizations as well.
The way the program works is simple: For any business or professional (must be a new or returning advertiser) placing either a full or half page ad in ALIVE, we will donate, every month, 15% of the cost of the ad to any legitimate charitable or cultural organization of the advertiser’s choice (so long as it meets out criteria), PLUS we will run a one-time, promotional, full page advertisement (or editorial) for that charity at no cost to the charitable organization.
So, to you business owners: This is your opportunity to provide significant support to a cause that you really care about, while helping your own business at the same time. Through this “win-win” program, together we can generate the awareness and an ongoing financial resource that so many of these organizations need.
