CORPORATE CONTRIBUTIONS & SPONSORSHIPS
Although a monetary contribution is always appreciated, there are many other ways that a corporation can help. Depending on your objectives, you can either sponsor a Foundation event or designate a percentage of your company's profits (annually or related to a specific corporate event) to the Foundation.
Like any other business, the Foundation has administrative and operating costs associated with its work. Any contribution that can reduce operating expenses will allow the Foundation to allocate more funds to research and educational programs. Contributions of this nature include "in kind" gifts of office equipment (i.e. photocopier, fax, computers, file cabinets), office supplies, and/or merchandise for fundraisers. Professional services such as legal, accounting, fundraising, publicity, or advertising on a pro bono or discounted basis is needed, along with the underwriting of printing and copying charges related to stationary, business cards, mailing materials and pamphlets.
