Donate? Not now. WE CYCLE.
Good Returns is a new form of philanthropy that allows businesses to do more good and promotes sustainable solutions to our world's greatest problems.
Our model drives capital from businesses and corporations into problem-solving, sustainable organizations - called Impact Organizations - in order to serve humanity. Participating companies provide capital to Good Returns as an interest-free loan. Good Returns constructs a financial guarantee for every dollar and distributes it as interest-free loans to top vetted impact organizations. We also create channels for the company to tell powerful stories of impact. After one year, the capital is returned through Good Returns to the participating businesses. This cycle enables businesses to commit more resources and drive more impact – unlocking new value for companies, impact organizations, and the world.
THE POWER OF THE CYCLE
By allowing companies to lend, or cycle, rather than just donate, Good Returns creates opportunities
for more capital to be deployed for scaling sustainable solutions.
CONSIDER THIS: Over the past 50 years, corporate philanthropy has averaged a mere 0.9% of pre-tax profits.
That means that, on average, less than 1% of a company's financial output is directly being used to benefit humanity.
But we realize that businesses do not exist to simply donate. Executives answer to shareholders and shareholders demand returns.
By supplementing their annual giving with a cycle, companies can afford to commit more capital each year while sharing stories of authentic impact being generated through sustainable means. In doing so they can increase their impact without increasing their effective cost.
Don't just ask 'How can we give more?' Ask 'How can we do more with what we currently give?'
Now that's something that every shareholder can get excited about.
