Phones4Charity corporate collection programs provide an excellent community and employee relations tool for companies. By launching a cell phone collection campaign, your company can help the environment while helping out a charitable cause. Your employees will appreciate the opportunity to safely dispose of their retired cell phones, and a charity will appreciate the contribution that your company can make as a result of your collection campaign.
Why does Phones4Charity make sense?
There are more than 800 million cell phones lying idle in American homes and businesses. Millions more are on the verge of retirement as subscribers upgrade or change service providers. Industry research has shown that wireless subscribers typically upgrade their phones on average every two years. With the current number of subscribers at over 280 million, an estimated 140 million handsets will be retired in the coming year alone.
The number of unused or retired phones will keep growing year after year, providing an endless supply of phones for the Phones4Charity program.
It can support your company's charitable initiatives
For every handset you collect you will receive funds to support your philanthropic endeavors. In this way, Phones 4 Charity acts as a virtually cost-free and hassle-free support mechanism for your company's charitable giving programs. Phones4Charity could provide additional funds to existing contributions or be the main source of your charitable funding freeing up dollars for other purposes.
It gives your philanthropic efforts strategic direction
Traditionally corporate philanthropy has involved giving money to charities and receiving recognition. Phones 4 Charity provides an opportunity for strategic philanthropy tying charitable giving to your business objectives.
Collecting outdated and unused wireless technology to help fund charitable endeavors shows the wireless industry is smart and responsible. You are providing customers and potential customers with a way to feel good about themselves and your company. A recent Cone/Roper poll showed that 83 percent of Americans have a more positive image of companies that support philanthropic initiatives.
By building or strengthening a positive image for your company, you may also build your customer base. In addition, conducting a charitable collection drive opens the doors of your retail locations to your current customers and invites potential customers to follow.
It's environmentally responsible
Phones 4 Charity provides a new message for your company to communicate. We are environmentally responsible. The key environmental aspects of the collection program are reuse of otherwise idle cell phones and the proper disposal of obsolete phones and exhausted batteries. This is an aspect of the program that can further enhance your company's image.

With Phones 4 Charity handling the logistics, it will be easy to participate and realize the benefits. Phones4Charity will work with your company in the coordination of collection materials, shipping, public relations and marketing materials. In addition, it is customizable.
