As a necessity, the majority of its resources are utilized in an effort to achieve that goal, not on internal needs. That’s where Gain by Giving, presented by Cincinnati's BBB Center for Ethics, came in. “It’s a wonderful thing for nonprofits, especially if they have a tight budget for projects they can’t quite get to,” said Rhonda Chisenhall, Vice President of Community Development for NKCAC. “It’s really nice to get small projects like this accomplished before the end of the year.” Gain by Giving is a way for companies with excess resources, time or materials to connect with nonprofits with matching needs. NKCAC matched with Dale Cassett, owner of New World Painting & Decorating Inc, who was looking for a way to get in on the giving season. “Work tends to ebb and flow this time of year,” said Cassett. “I got this message about wanting some rooms painted, and I figured we could help out.” BBB Center for Ethics in Cincinnati acted as a facilitator, bringing the two organizations together to fulfill NKCAC’s request for aid. “A couple of his workers came out and got our rooms painted in about three days,” said Chisenhall. “They did a wonderful job; it really looks warm and welcoming. We’re very happy with the work they did.” Gain by Giving is part of an effort by BBB Center for Ethics to create a more collaborative local community that brings organizational leaders together, connecting companies that can with nonprofits that need. It is open to Accredited Businesses and Charities in the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area.Interested organizations should visit gainbygiving.org, where nonprofits can list what organizational needs they have and companies can post what resources they can provide.
