How can your company become a partner?
- Invite us onsite to recruit volunteers within your company. Our Lunch Buddies Mentoring program is perfect for the busy business professional who has a flexible lunch schedule. An added benefit is that our volunteer programs build teamwork and employee engagement.
- Provide BBBS with a company point of contact.
- Utilize your company’s charitable giving programs by supporting BBBS, the most well-known and well-respected name in youth mentoring.
- Do you have employee bulletin boards to hang posters? Can we include recruitment information in an employee email blast, monthly or quarterly newsletter, or for paycheck stuffers?
- Do you have talented, leadership quality employees who might make a great addition to our Board of Directors or County Action Team?
- Host a mini-fundraiser for BBBS – penny drive, bake sale, employee recognition day, sell $1 snowman pin-ups during the holidays or pay money to wear jeans on Friday the ideas are endless!
- Sponsor an ad in our quarterly newsletter or on our new website – both are great ways to connect with our agency while helping defray our costs to provide relevant information to our program participants and area businesses.
- Allow an annual Bowl for Kids’ Sake presentation to your employees. Get involved as a group – maybe even a ‘company bowl’ is right for you!
- Donate in-kind services/products such as printing, postage, paper or office space.
- Sponsor a match activity or donate event tickets for our matches.
