Business Pay It Forward Ideas

Pay it Forward Business Challenge

There are many ways businesses can get involved.

Let us know what your business is doing this Pay it Forward May! Email us at We hope to inspire others through the stories of Pay it Forward kindness taking place in our community.

Spread the word. If the person thanks you and wants to “repay” you (that is, pay it “back”), let them know that what you’d really like is for them to pay it “forward”—you’d like them to do something nice for someone, and ask those people to do something nice for more people. The idea is to consciously increase the kindness in the community.

Even small acts, such as paying for the person’s coffee behind you in the drive through, counts. If it makes the world a friendlier place, you succeeded!
