BNI Foundation: September 2017 Update

Your Business Voices Stories

The BNI Foundation’s Business Voices
initiative is gaining serious momentum, and a big part of that is due to the
stories that Business Voices teams share about the great events and programs
they put on. The shared stories are inspirational and help to motivate others
to get involved and make Business Voices a part of their BNI regions and
chapters. Make sure to share your Business Voices stories with all of BNI by
filling out the Business Voices form here. The
online form allows you to describe your team’s event, who participated, how
many kids were impacted and more. You can also add photos from the event.

Sharing your story through the form
is the only way to get it told through the BNI Foundation’s website and social
media channels. Now there is another exciting reason to share your stories. The
very first Business Voices Team Awards will be presented at this years BNI
Global Convention taking place this November in Long Beach, CA. Keep those
stories coming and good luck.

Giving Survey

Our recent blog
about cause marketing, spells out the ways that everyone benefits when
companies and non-profit organizations join forces to put out their message. We
hope that the post spreads some awareness among BNI members and administrators
about the power of these partnerships. To learn more about your philanthropic
efforts we have posted a charitable giving survey. When you fill it out we will
use your responses to develop more ways for the BNI Foundation to partner with
BNI regions and chapters, as well local business, to make a positive impact on
the schools and children in our communities. Take the survey here

The next Givers Gain® grant cycle opens on September 15th.  Schools and educational organizations that

to School Appeal

Our Back to School donor appeal campaign is kicking off in early
September. While our current drive is a push for funding before school starts,
there are many needs that arise throughout the school year, and our continued support
is critical. We ask that you consider giving to the BNI Foundation to support
this and other similar important
causes. Funding raised during this campaign will directly impact those
in need.  Keep an eye out for the
donation letter or feel free to donate here.
