Earth Day 2013: How to give back using BizX

April 19, 2013 | Written by Austin Yuen

BizX_Gives_BackCelebrated by millions of people across the globe, Earth Day (April 22nd) is a special day dedicated to appreciating our planet. It’s also a good time for businesses to evaluate ways to help conserve resources and protect our planet for future generations. Aside from adopting internal business practices to recycle, conserve energy and reuse or repurpose goods, we also encourage business owners and employees to use BizX to give back.

And what’s great about BizX is that our members can donate their BizX dollars to nonprofit organizations. Businesses pay taxes on BizX dollars at the end of the year, just like cash profits and when businesses donate to nonprofit, it’s treated exactly like a cash donation. It is tax deductible and brings the same value to a non-profit.

Charitable organizations always need donations to help their cause, pay their employees and run their operations. Donations and fundraisers raise money for all of these purposes, but non-profits can always use more money to support their mission.

The charitable organization can use the BizX dollars to offset their operational expenses like printing, accounting services or IT services. Or they can use BizX dollars to purchase auction items, like tickets, gift certificates, hotel stays or other entertainment to help raise money for their organization. However non-profit uses the BizX dollars, it is a great way to save or raise more cash to pay employees and support their overall mission of helping others.

That said, how do you plan to give back in 2013? We’d love to hear how you use BizX to make our planet a healthier place to live. Happy Earth Day 2013!
