Buy One GIVE One donated ad space program extended

Business Record is working to leverage our platforms to help the community through our Buy One GIVE One promotion to help small businesses and nonprofits who have been faced with great struggles during the Covid19 crisis.

This program is designed to highlight what corporations have done to support the community AND give a small business or nonprofit of their choice the ability to showcase the work they are doing, programs they are providing and/or garner fundraising support they need to continue impacting the community.

Each week throughout the summer, the Business Record will provide ad space for companies around the metro to showcase their support, draw attention to the programs developed to help in the crisis, brand services or to say thank you to frontline workers.

When companies participate, you are able to GIVE another ad to a small business or nonprofit of your choice. Additionally through BR’s social media platforms, you will receive a social media post highlighting the organization you have chosen and your support of this program. The Business Record will help foster digital connection and promotion through our Business Record Daily and Covid19 coverage on
