Americans’ expectations of companies’ philanthropic and social roles are at an all-time high: 83% say companies have a responsibility to help support causes, and 92% acknowledge they have a more positive image of a company that supports a cause they care about. Few, if any, causes have broader or more compelling appeal than coming to the aid of abused and neglected children. Chelan-Douglas CASA is a highly effective, practical way to bring brighter futures to children while meeting your corporate goals and investing in the community where you live and work. Our mission is very compelling to our partners’ existing customers, potential customers and employees.
Types of Corporate Support
Chelan-Douglas CASA relies on corporate giving, which can be divided in to direct cash contributions and non-cash donations. Corporate contributions can come from sponsorships, matching gift programs, workplace giving campaigns, company sponsorship, and company foundations. Non-cash donations can come in the form of in-kind support, such as in-kind services, program support for kids, service days and office supply needs.
Sponsorship of Chelan-Douglas CASA provides an opportunity to bring positive change to the lives of vulnerable children while providing your company with numerous benefits. These include reaching new target audiences, increasing stakeholder loyalty and making a social impact in the communities where you do business.
