There are a number of opportunities throughout the year for corporate involvement with The Foundation for Ellis Medicine.
Whether your company makes an outright gift, sponsors an event, or provides a matching gift program, your investment in Ellis sends a strong message to those you do business with: that you care about the health and well-being of our community.
Through our Corporate Philanthropy and Corporate Sponsorships, your organization can become a partner with The Foundation for Ellis Medicine.
A Corporate Partnership with Ellis can help your organization:
- Gain recognition for its good citizenship
- Be respected for its support of the area's finest hospital
- Be co-branded with one of the area’s leading Health Centers
A philanthropic partnership provides corporations the opportunity to drive advances in cardiac services, orthopedics, oncology, neurology, and women's care, that impact our families and neighbors, now and in the future.
While unrestricted gifts allow us to support our most urgent needs, you can align your giving more precisely with your business objectives by giving to one of our many programs or specialties. Stewart's Shops, for example, has supported the Sugar Free Gang, a summer camp program for youth and teens learning to live with diabetes.
In-kind gifts of products and technology can be key to advancing the lifesaving work of Ellis Medicine. It makes perfect sense to channel products to the people who need them most. Nestle, for example, provides infant formula for new moms. Donating printing, graphic design, or consulting services or contributing goods such as prizes for events or office supplies may be the most effective way for your company to support The Foundation for Ellis Medicine.
Matching gifts support employees in their personal philanthropy and encourages involvement in community organizations such as Ellis Medicine. Matching gifts are strong incentives for your employees to support Ellis Medicine and endears the company to its employees. In addition, matching gifts allow you to fulfill corporate philanthropic obligations, support a worthy organization, and receive a tax benefit. General Electric employees and retirees, for example, contribute annually to the many capital and program needs of Ellis Medicine. GE matches these gifts dollar-for-dollar and provides more than $200,000 annually to Ellis Medicine.
Sponsoring a Foundation for Ellis Medicine event is a powerful way to associate your brand with our mission and values, while reaching a targeted constituency. The benefits to your company are numerous and include:
- Media and promotional exposure
- Corporate recognition in event publications/invitations and web
- Signage and logo displays at events
