Many corporations and businesses ask us how they can help bring joy and hope to the lives of vulnerable children and their families. We have a multitude of ways in which you, your employees, clients and customers can help.
Employee Giving Opportunities
We welcome the opportunity to work with employee donation committees to design opportunities for your employees to financially support our services. Donations can be made via payroll deduction or directly to The Salvation Army.
Link your corporate name with The Salvation Army's well-known and respected 'brand'. Our advertising materials are professionally designed and produced to ensure high quality. Your company can partner with The Salvation Army by sponsoring national advertising, and receive name recognition linked with our print, media, and web related materials.
The Salvation Army would be pleased to work with your corporation to develop a program enabling you and your customers to financially support our services. We will collaborate with you to design a program that works best for you.
The Salvation Army undertakes many local special events throughout Canada. During the Christmas season for example, there is our local Toy Drive, Adopt-a-Family program, Santa Shuffle 5km Fun Run & 1km Elf Walk, Elf Trees, concerts, and many others. Corporate sponsors are always welcome and there are opportunities for local branches of your company to partner with local Salvation Army offices.
We would be pleased to discuss opportunities for specified and non-specified cash and in-kind gifts.
The Salvation Army needs more than financial support to further its mission. There are always opportunities for volunteers to help in significant ways, and feel good about upholding our communities most vulnerable people. Such activities provide a wonderful opportunity to build rapport among employees, challenge others to get involved, and partner with us to bring hope to marginalized children and their families.
If you would like to discuss any of these opportunities, please contact public relations director Deb Lowell.
