Corporate and Organisation donation refers to any financial contribution made by a corporation to another entity such as MMHF that furthers the contributor’s own objectives.
MMHF is very aware that executives increasingly see themselves in a no-win situation, caught between critics demanding ever higher levels of “corporate social responsibility” and investors applying relentless pressure to maximize short-term profits.
Giving more does not satisfy the critics—the more companies donate; the more is expected of them. And executives find it hard, if not impossible, to justify charitable expenditures in terms of bottom-line benefit.
The majority of corporate contribution programs are diffuse and unfocused. Most consist of numerous small cash donations given to aid local civic causes or provide general operating support to universities and national charities in the hope of generating goodwill among employees, customers, and the local community. Rather than being tied to well-thought-out social or business objectives, the contributions often reflect the personal beliefs and values of executives or employees.
MMHF understands that Corporate dollars are better served going to one single Industry Foundation (like the Cancer Foundation) so that all corporate philanthropic donations go direct to their industry
Due to the significantly high rate of men’s suicide in male dominated industries, construction in particular MMHF has now responded by providing an industry specific not-for-profit Charity that raises funds just for the prevention of men’s suicide and the improvement of men’s mental health at work in THOSE men in need in those industries
