Is your cause marketing working for your socially responsible customer? More and more consumers are interested buying from companies that give back to social causes – especially during the holidays. Use these insights collected by #TeamTEGNA to make sure your brand is reaching this growing audience. 

A study from Porter Novelli found that 72% of consumers say it’s “more important than ever” to purchase from companies that reflect their values, and the Blackhawk Network found that 60% of consumers are looking to buy from companies that give back to charitable causes. Additionally, 68% say they will purchase gift cards that benefit philanthropic endeavors. Meanwhile, the Integer Group says that 57% will support brands that give back to local communities rather than supporting global or national causes.  

How will these consumers know the causes your brand supports? Advertising & News. The Integer Group survey found that 40% of consumers hear about a brand’s charitable efforts through advertising, while 28% hear about it through news media.
