Cause related marketing Definition from Business & Finance Dictionaries & Glossaries
Raynet Business & Marketing Glossary
a commercial company working (and seen to be working) with a NFP organisation (charity, school etc.) on a mutual business beneficial basis. Unlike Philanthropy, money spent on cause marketing is a business expense, not a donation, and is expected to show a return on investment (see philanthropy) e.g. Tesco giving coupons on sales to be used for school computors.

Cause related marketing Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
English Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia
Cause marketing or cause-related marketing refers to a type of marketing involving the cooperative efforts of a for-profit business and a non-profit organization for mutual benefit. The term is sometimes used more broadly and generally to refer to any type of marketing effort for social and other charitable causes, including in-house marketing efforts by non-profit organizations. Cause marketing differs from corporate giving (philanthropy), as the latter generally involves a specific donation that is tax-deductible, while cause marketing is a marketing relationship not necessarily based on a donation.
