Your involvement will make an immediate difference in countless lives in our community

 

Through your support, countless lives in our community will be changed. You will give access to services to those who need it most, you will validate their worth as human beings, you will join us in our mission to serve anyone needing help, and never having to say no because of money.

How Does This Work?

You Want To Get Involved But Not Sure How It Works and Why You Should Join Us?

We believe that the primary reason we should be getting involved in the community is because it’s the right thing to do. We’re also business owners and realize that while altruism is great, there needs to be a benefit to the business. We think we’re covered both in our Step Forward Corporate Sponsorship Program.

What Does The Program Include?

Immediate Impact on the Community

Your funds go immediately into our program and start helping people today – 100% of the funds go directly to clients.

You get recognized publicly for your support

While most don’t do it for the recognition, as a business owner, brand recognition counts. As a part of your support, you’ll be recognized publicly in various forms depending on your support level.

Perks

As a part of your involvement, you’ll receive some perks. From social media shout outs, to articles for your staff newsletters or websites, or lunch and learns, we’ve got you covered!

How It Works

Call Us With Questions

We want you to have an opportunity to ask us any questions you’d like about the program, and also for us to get to know you. This is a partnership and we should get to know each other and make sure it’s a great fit for everyone.
