Recently, I took Freedom Road Publishing in a new direction — focusing on not-for-profit organizations. I am on the Board of one not-for-profit and I see how these organizations struggle for money to maintain operations as one after another the federal and state government funds disappear.
To show my support for these keepers of the flame of compassion, I have added new material to my website to offer a substantial discount to all 501(c)(3) organizations that choose to use Freedom Road Publishing for event flyers, brochures, and their other publications. This is known as an "in kind" donation because cash not spent is as good as cash collected.
Another place I'm holding my focus is giving back to the local community. I know it's a cliche, but nonetheless, I work to use local printers when I can. Local supplies, local books, and working with the local Indy bookstore crowd as opposed to Amazon and BN.
It sounds nuts, doesn't it? To say I'll discount my prices for one group and then increase my costs with another group. Well, I guess I'll have to figure out how to make that work. One way is to spread the good word. If you are associated with a not-for-profit, check out the site and let me offer them an in-kind donation. Visit FreedomRoadPublishing.com
