What we believe
We believe we have found a unique way of bringing business and charity together in an environment that is mutually beneficial. The business saves money on their monthly bills and the charity receives much needed funding on a regular basis – a win win situation.
Having initiated this scheme six years ago, we have seen and experienced its benefits, the rewards of which are too numerous to mention. Just a little bit of your time is all it will cost for you to become part of this fantastic scheme – time, we assure you, will be well spent.
Business For Community Needs - Affinity Scheme
Cause related marketing (CRM) is a common part of our everyday life, designed and developed to both generate ‘funding’ for IT equipment and books or other items for educational needs and to increase business revenue for the retailer. The obvious problem with this is the fact that the benefits aren’t actually seen or we don’t actually hear of the benefits that the collections have earned. The facts of the matter are that in some major “retailers” CRM schemes it can take over £250,000 of spend to raise enough funds to buy a single computer. Realistically a way needed to be sought to create funds at a much more achievable level and also to attain a more direct route to beneficiary. As a development of Communications Solutions Ltd a leading supplier of telecoms, IT and energy brokerage – Business for Community Needs (BFCN) was born in 2003 to negate this issue. Funds are generated from the sale of services or products and a fixed payment is made from ‘our profits’. For the avoidance of doubt service agreements including prices are set in place before we enter into discussions of who may benefit from any donations that are taken from our net profit.
