Cause Marketing

Cause-related marketing encompasses a wide variety of commercial activity that aligns your company or brand with a cause to generate both business and societal benefits.

The many benefits of cause marketing include:

  • Greater awareness for company product or service
  • Increased sales
  • Access to new audiences
  • Competitive advantage
  • Increased brand image and awareness

According to the 2013 Cone Communications/Echo Global CSR Study:

  • 92% of global consumers say they would purchase products from companies with a social or environmental benefit.
  • Only 39% of consumers support companies that offer cause marketing with choice of cause compared to 61% of consumers who support companies that make a long-term commitment to a focused issue over time.

We have developed these Cause Marketing Guidelines and Agreement to provide clear direction on expectations throughout any relationship with the Vermont Foodbank.
