Help to Employers from The City Mission
The City Mission has a variety of services, programs, workshops, resources, and opportunities that can be helpful to business owners or managers, or their employees.
Helping your employees
How Companies can Help The City Mission
The City Mission receives no public funding - no city, county, state nor federal - and we rely on private donations. Corporate sponsorships of our events or programs can provide great assistance in initiating or continuing benefits to our clients. Below are just a few of the ways that corporations can help.
Program Support Opportunities
All programs have portions that can be funded by corporations or grants from foundations. If you have an interest in supporting a particular program area or to learn of the ones for which we are currently seeking funding, please email our Grant Manager or call (216) 431-3510 ext. 248.
Event or Project Sponsorships
We have the following opportunities available to help change these lives for your consideration:
- “Field of Hope" Luncheon (Thursday, September 20, 2012)
- Monthly Pathways Family Nights (various months available)
- Exterior Mural Project (Carnegie Ave. side of our Pathways Family Outreach Services building)

Volunteer or Donate Services
Create a special day for your employees to get involved. Please contact our Volunteer Supervisor at least 6-9 weeks in advance of your desired date.
To learn more about donating professional services, call (216) 431-3510 ext. 269 or email our Chief Development Officer.
Throw a Birthday Party for the Mission (or create your own fundraiser)
We had a wonderful 100th anniversary celebration event and year in 2010. As we continue serving the homeless and hurting, your help would be welcome in raising funds to provide the programming and maintain the facilities. If you would be interested in holding your own fundraiser and would like a speaker or display, help publicizing the event to our supporters, etc., please call (216) 431-3510 ext. 235.
Matching Your Employees' Contributions
A number of local and national companies will match the contributions of their employees to charities. If you need any information to add us to your current program or to start a new one, please contact our Development Office at (216) 431-3510 ext. 269
Honors and Memorials
Acknowledging people who have made an impact in our life or that of a company or in the community can inspire others to do the same. And it can change lives of the people they may never meet.
Giving Honor or Memorial Gifts
Invite a Speaker to Your Meeting
A great way to enhance a staff or a regional business meeting is to invite a speaker from another organization. Check out our Speakers Bureau to see some of the people you could consider inviting.
