‘Tis the season to boost specials, be merry, and give back. But when you’re in the cannabis business, giving back to your community and the causes that you care about can become a bit of a chore instead of a reason to celebrate. Since cannabis is still considered a Schedule 1 drug federally, most non-profits cannot or will not accept donations of any kind from a cannabis company. Seems silly, right? The good news is, there are ways your cannabis company can get involved this holiday season with a little creativity and gumption.
When organizing about a community charity event, it’s important to first think about what you feel passionate about. Do the issues of homelessness, hunger, LGBTQ rights, or domestic violence tug at your heartstrings? Does your local community have a need for assistance in these areas? Think about what issues speak to you and your culture, and choosing a cause that speaks to you will come easy. Hosting a charity event isn’t only about generating positive publicity for your cannabis brand, it is a way to positively impact your community and the people who support your business.
Cannabis Marketing, Inc. has successfully worked with cannabis, CBD, and hemp companies to help them positively impact their community. From gathering hundreds of pounds of food for local food banks, to gathering local donations of coats and clothes for the city’s homeless and less fortunate, we work with you to ensure your efforts are worthwhile and your community reaps the benefits. Giving back is more than getting recognition for your philanthropic efforts; it also helps de-stigmatize the negativity that surrounds our industry. It only takes one brand to make a difference!
Why Work With An Agency for A Community Charity Event?
You are busy, as all business owners are. Between managing your grow, inspecting product quality, and managing employees, your days are already more than hectic. Working with an agency to vet quality non-profits, organize the details of your event, and help promote your brand, keeps your focus on managing your business. We take the legwork and stress out of your daily life and promote your event using every possible avenue to get positive exposure while encouraging community participation. Our creative team pushes your event through blogs, social media, and even radio to get the word out and increase participation. Your cannabis, hemp, or CBD brand should be recognized for your efforts, and we have the connections to help you maximize your efforts. After all, a campaign executed poorly won’t help you, your business, or the cause you care so much about. So why not invest a little bit of money to get the most for your philanthropic efforts? You get back what you put in, and we are just as passionate and driven about your cause as you are.

The types of events your cannabis, hemp, or CBD company can sponsor are varied, and it really takes a little digging to find those non-profits who will accept donations, either in cash or kind. In recent years, we have successfully run local campaigns for charities such as the Southern Colorado Care & Share and West Side Cares. Donating food, clothes, and other items give your company the opportunity to make a true difference in people’s lives. Let us help you find a cause you care about!
Here are some other charities and causes we would love to work with your brand to promote:
- Breast Cancer Awareness
- LGBTQ Support
- Food Banks
- Domestic Violence
- Scholarship and Financial Aid
- Crisis Services
- Arts & Culture
There is a prime opportunity for your brand to set yourself apart. Creating a community event, or partnering with an event that is already established, only gives you the opportunity to increase your brand recognition while making a true difference. There are many non-profits who will say no, but the only thing you need is for one to say “Yes!” to help grow your brand exposure, help your local community, and help to destigmatize the cannabis culture. Change happens with one person taking a stand and connecting with others. Wouldn’t you like to be the brand that is creating change in our industry?
