Hope is Not a Strategy

Too often when we give, we don’t know what happens to our precious resources. We hope the organizations we give to are actually reputable. We hope they’re good stewards of our gifts and use them in the way we intended.

But just as in life, when it comes to giving, hope is not a strategy.

When you partner with Return on Good, we’ll do the hard work of developing a plan and doing the research so there will be no surprises.

You won’t have to hope that your gift went to an upstanding organization. You won’t have to hope it did good in the world. You’ll know it because we’ll provide you with the data to prove it.

Save Time & Energy with Return on Good

Return on Good ensures the organizations you or your company give to have strong leadership and solid financials. That their mission and vision are true. That they actually do with your money what they say they’re going to do with it.

We do that through research and planning. We do that by demanding data and sharing it with you every year so you have peace of mind.

By allowing Return on Good to facilitate your gift, you’ll also save time and energy. That’s because we take care of everything, from a confidential inquiry to recognition to stewardship.

Every step of the way, we’ll listen to you and honor your wishes. We’ll talk to those you want us to talk with, from family members to board members and financial planners to current receiving organizations.

For each gift, we’ll have an agreed-upon contract that clearly outlines your expectations for your gift, from how your gift will be used to recognition to how and when your gift will be recognized.

In short: With Return on Good, you’re in the driver’s seat of your philanthropic mission. Always.
