Aside from the obvious tax deduction they get for the donation, mention that this is a double opportunity for them. They will get some positive advertising, for donating to a worthwhile cause, and that this is a chance to give something back to the community that has supported their business.

I would emphasize the number of clients served and how this benefits them. I would also mention how the funds are used and the efficiencies that your group has developed in its operations.
