Other benefits include:

  • The opportunity to build a strategic partnership that will actively support disadvantaged and homeless youth while delivering on your business, brand, and community objectives.

In-Kind Support

In-kind support can be a useful model for businesses who are not necessarily in a position to make direct monetary donations, but would still like to make a contribution. It relies on the giving of gifts “in-kind”, or in lieu of monetary donations and funding, and often plays to the strengths of a business and what it can most conveniently do to help.

Examples of in-kind gifts include:

  • Goods, like computers, software, furniture, and office equipment
  • Services, like meeting space, printing, driving and administrative/financial support
  • Expertise, like legal, graphic design, landscaping or business advice; marketing and web site development; and strategic planning
