It was great to see BBN members come together to learn more about a variety of different causes that could benefit from our initial Impact Fund donation and cast their votes – alongside the ongoing business networking, accountability groups and business workshops.
Giving back to both the planet and people is a key part of the Better Business Network. Membership fees go towards the running of the network itself but alongside this, members collectively vote on what the membership fees are spent on – including the donation amount to high impact non-profits and money for training and development programmes.
This will be the first of many donations to good causes, non-profits and charities via our partners at 1% For The Planet. For now though, we couldn’t be happier to be a small part in the furthering of the Blue Sky Fund’s goal to give every young person the opportunity to discover themselves by actively engaging the natural world.
