Cause Awareness Calendar 2021

3 min readFeb 17, 2021


This calendar provides nonprofits worldwide the chance to plan and raise awareness about something they care about, hence allowing them to participate in community development. Aligning your company with a cause is a pivotal move to increasing an organization’s public image, which makes the public trust your company more and create an overall positive impact. Organizations typically use this as a strategic move to maximize their public relation and market themselves better.

Additionally, having a Cause awareness calendar enables content creators to develop good content for their targeted audience in advance. This ensures that the final content created is of high quality and can satisfy the targeted audience, such as the fundraisers and sponsors, and help the organization that creates this content to achieve its objective in form of reaching as many people as possible and raising enough money to do so. As such, the Cause Awareness Calendar is a useful tool for planning content and promoting companies worldwide. This is particularly vital in the era of digital technology, which has seen a shift in marketing to involve the internet due to the social media platform’s growth within the past few decades.
