I've been focusing on building a donor-base from individual contributors, but it's been on my roadmap to introduce a selection of business services to help companies operate more sustainably.
I actually haven't even gotten around to outlining the business donor proposition on my site yet 😞. However, whilst in a conversation with my employer, it turns out that they were intending to start donating to a tree-planting and sustainability initiative, and when hearing about my project it seemed like a perfect fit!
So, out of the blue, a business will now be making recurring donations to Target 2030 😍. It's a big jump in monthly donations, possibly equivalent to having 100 new donors sign up at once! At approximately €1000 per month (though that will vary monthly), it's going to, at least temporarily, supercharge the growth of Target 2030.
I'm going to use this as the springboard/motivation to really build out the business services proposition on the website over the next month or so. I can hopefully leverage the existence of a business donor to help encourage other businesses to donate too! ...it's always an easier pitch when you have people already making use of the service 🙂
