Corporate Giving

Many companies are looking for ways to give back to their community.  Easter Seals UCP appreciates that and offers many different ways for businesses and their employees to get involved:

Matching Gifts: Many companies offer a matching gifts program to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations of their choice.  Most companies will match the employee's gift dollar for dollar, while some companies will double or even triple the amount of the gift.  Check with your Human Resources department to see if your company has a matching gift program.

Employee Giving: Many companies offer their employees the option of giving to a non-profit of their choice, with the donations automatically deducted from the employee's paycheck.  Check with your Human Resources department to see if your company has an Employee Giving program.

Special Event Sponsorships: Easter Seals UCP receives a majority of its funding from state and local government agencies and Medicaid reimbursements.  However, these funding streams do not cover the full cost of providing services.  The goal of Easter Seals UCP special events, in addition to educating the general public of our services, is to sustain Easter Seals UCP's life-changing programs while bridging the gap in funding streams.  Businesses and corporations may choose to sponsor any of our 3 Juice & Jazz events, 6 Walk With Me events, or our Ride Without Limits.  There are various sponsorship levels for each event.

Cause-Marketing Campaigns: Corporations can partner with Easter Seals UCP through cause-marketing campaigns, like the Food Lion Shop&Care program.  These campaigns give the corporation a way to give back, while giving Easter Seals UCP a chance to reach possible donors through the corporation's customer base.
