Sharing our time, talent, and treasure with those in need is foundational to who we are as a company and as individuals.
HOW WE HELP
TRG has a long history of giving back – from offering pro bono services to non-profit organizations to opening our doors to those in need of a dynamic meeting space, from supporting charitable initiatives to hosting marketing seminars. Giving back is part of our DNA. Check the profiles of our team, and you’ll find even more examples of our people supporting organizations and issues close to their hearts.
Over the years, TRG has provided pro bono marketing support for organizations ranging from USO Wisconsin and Girls on the Run to Code the Way and Acts 17:28 Dance. Now, TRG offers the 90-Day Strategic Planning Initiative (SPI).
TRG developed the 90-Day SPI to assist new and small businesses in getting organized and moving forward. Our staff works with participating leaders to understand their initial strategies, current environments, and challenges. We then apply proven marketing principles to address the marketplace roadblocks and reinvigorate their business plans.
Criteria for 90-Day SPI
- Relatively small businesses
- Established for at least one year
- Based in Southeastern Wisconsin
- Willing to commit the time required to plan effectively
Interested organizations are encouraged to apply.
In 2018, Wisconsin Lutheran College and TRG Marketing partnered to develop the Good Stories Project – an opportunity for college students to learn how small businesses can have a positive impact in today’s world.
Recent media stories highlighting the negativity in business can sometimes turn off young people from seeking professional careers in business. But through the Good Stories Project, the next generation can learn first-hand how many businesses further the public good. Students interview executives and see exactly how companies positively conduct themselves. To date, the Good Stories Project has involved hundreds of students and dozens of local Wisconsin businesses.
