we #ChangeTheStars by giving back.
One of our biggest values at North Star is contributing to our world and communities.
In addition to working exclusively with companies that give back, we donate to nonprofits, offer scholarships, and volunteer.
We are proud to make giving back a part of our business model, and we’re committed to inspiring others to do the same.
Philanthropy is talk-about-able.
So many business owners are afraid to talk about their philanthropic contributions — even if it’s one of their primary values. To many, it feels too much like bragging.
We want to #changethestars around this conversation, and promote the benefits of discussing your charitable giving. When you do, you attract clients who share your values, and you increase your impact by allowing them to be part of the process.
We give to two different causes, both of which are near and dear to us:
Diversity + Inclusion
In 2019, we donated to the Writing Excuses Retreat Scholarship Fund, supporting authors from diverse backgrounds.
In 2020, we are selecting additional nonprofits that focus on inclusion and intersectionality. Stay tuned for more info.
The Environment + Planet Earth
In 2019, we contributed (and will again in 2020) to the National Forest Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit that spearheads a U.S.A.-wide reforestation effort. For every 1,000 words of copy we produce for our clients, we plant a tree.
