How Your Company Can Impact Their Immediate Community
Do you have emerging leaders in your organization? For the first time ever we are beginning an Associate Board in the fall of 2019. If you're passionate about serving Clevelanders in crisis or know someone who would be a good fit to champion our mission, visit our Associate Board page to learn more. We'd also love your company to become involved in any of the following ways:
Sponsor: Expand your marketing exposure by sponsoring and attending our major fundraising events - the Running with a Mission 5k and 1 mile walk, or the Ride with a Mission motorcycle rally. Email Denise Eaddy or call (216) 431-3510, ext. 216 today for a sponsorship packet.
Support: Provide an outright grant to support any of our program/service areas such as emergency shelter, group counseling or capital improvements. For more information please email our Grant Manager, Megan Albert, or call (216) 431-3510 ext. 314.
Build: In Ohio, a single mother working a minimum wage job — the work most of our guests are eligible for — must work 100 hours each week to afford a basic two-bedroom apartment. We've created the New Horizons Program to address this massive issue. In 2018 AXA Advisors became our first corporate partner, and moved Chanelle and her family into their home in time for Christmas! New Horizons works with outside organizations to move a single-mother family from homeless to housed to homeowners. Email Ashley Field, our Community Outreach Coordinator, to learn if this life-changing opportunity is a good fit for your company.
Contribute: If your company provides goods or services that fit one of our need areas, let’s talk! Previous companies have contributed physical supplies and in-kind services such as legal aid, financial counseling, commercial cleaning materials, lawn equipment and more. Contact Chief Development Officer, Michele Krampitz, by email or call (216) 431-3510 ext. 216 for more details.
Volunteer: Do you have monthly, yearly or special opportunities to volunteer with your company? We organize impactful service activities for groups every week. Connect with us on our volunteer page and we'll help you discover the best fit for your commitment level.
Match: If your local or national company matches employee charity contributions, consider adding us to that list. For more information please contact our Development Office by emailing Denise Eaddy or calling (216) 431-3510 ext. 269
Educate: Enhance a staff or a regional business meeting by inviting one of our staff members to speak on issues of homelessness and poverty. Visit our Leadership page to view suggested speakers, and then email connect
@thecitymission.org with your request!
