One aspect of Photonics that separates it from the competition is its steadfast devotion to helping non-profits throughout Greater Cincinnati.

I, Alan Brown, have always believed that I have a duty to make an ongoing contribution to “The Greater Good.” It is a duty and a responsibility. For me, if I do nothing, I feel I’m contributing to the opposite.

This personal belief has influenced my business, and as a long-time business owner in Cincinnati, I always want to give back to the community that has helped create my livelihood. Photonics’ contribution to “The Greater Good” has largely been through our work with non-profits. All non-profits have needs, and many of those needs stem from not having enough resources to market themselves. That’s where Photonics fits in. We offer our services to non-profits at a reduced rate and do quite a bit of pro-bono work within the community.

There are many non-profits doing remarkable work and providing much-needed services and support to our community members who need it most. I love working with the leaders of these organizations to help them make a difference whether it is through their website, a marketing campaign, or a re-branding process. With the merry season of giving just around the corner, consider giving some of your own time or resources to local organizations. Here are just a few that we hold dear to our hearts at Photonics:

Cincinnati Youth Collaborative (CYC): CYC makes a significant difference in the lives of vulnerable young people in 2nd grade through college by providing a range of services designed to keep kids in school, prepared for college and career, and on the pathway to success. Photonics created a new website for CYC recently.

ReSource: ReSource’s mission is to build stronger nonprofits by distributing corporate donations, including excess goods such as furniture, personal care items and other products, to their member nonprofits. Photonics developed a new website for ReSource this year so they can continue to help area nonprofits succeed.

Congregation Beth Adam: Congregation Beth Adamis a unique community integrating Jewish tradition and humanistic principles. Photonics has worked with Congregation Beth Adam for many years on web development and graphic design services.

Thank you to these organizations and countless others who make a difference in our Cincinnati community day in and day out. We are honored to stand beside you and the good work that you do.

NOTE: As of 2018, ReSource joined ESCC to become the OneSource Center for Nonprofit Excellence.
