Service aims to aid Broomfield charities
Last Updated: 14:18 March 28, 2013
The service is designed to help local charities raise their visibility within the community and provide businesses and philanthropic individuals with information about a charity.
"This tool allows us to harness the goodness of our residents and businesses and really strengthen our community in a way that we haven't been able to before," said Jennifer Kerr, president and chief executive of Broomfield's chamber.
Mike Saunders, executive director of the Broomfield Business Resource Center, said many of the noblest causes operate seemingly in the shadows with little or no public awareness.
"Through the BRC, we are developing a Strategic Philanthropy initiative," Saunders said. "This will bring Broomfield businesses in touch with a strategy to increase their own business while helping local Broomfield charities and nonprofits."
To sign up for more information, go online at www.BroomfieldChamberForGood.com and enter an email address to receive weekly updates on needs that exist among charitable organizations in Broomfield.

Businesses interested in partnering with the chamber and sponsoring the Broomfield Chamber for Good website should contact Saunders at 303-466-1775, extension 6.
