About the Show

Charitable giving is often challenging for businesses. Providing prizes and products to school and charity events is an easier decision knowing that 42% of people would pay extra to companies committed to positive social and environmental impact (Nielsen). In fact, the publicity and ROI associated with feel-good events just may be a business owner’s most cost-effective marketing option available, if done well. That is where Renee Zau, CEO and Co-founder of Donation Match, saw a need and launched Donation Match. She had been a franchisee of two companies, launched five businesses, managed a regional marketing co-op, personally mentored over 100 business owners, and worked on over 50 charity events before partnering with husband Darryl to launch DonationMatch.com, the premiere self-service platform streamlining how products reach local community events and target audiences.
