You’ve made Akron Children’s Hospital your children’s charity of choice. You’ve invested in our community while supporting children – your own, your employees’ or your neighbors’ children. Now it’s our turn to help you meet your business goals

Cause Marketing: Philanthropy with an ROI

By partnering with Akron Children's on a cause-related marketing program, we can help you reach your business goals while you're giving back to the community.  When we develop a cause marketing campaign together, you’ll be making a socially responsible investment and a smart business move. As consumers increasingly spend their retail dollars with businesses that give back to the local community, and employees prefer working for companies that support local causes, your company will benefit from aligning with Akron Children’s Hospital.

Successful cause related marketing programs can include:

  • Change collection or round up promotions
  • Retail product sales with proceeds going to Akron Children’s
  • Internal employee fundraising activities
  • Select naming opportunities for transformational partnership contributions
  • Employee volunteering opportunities

Our staff  will work with you to design, create and activate a custom program that fits your business needs and the needs of your customers and employees and which can include a variety of opportunities:

Employee Giving Programs: Offering payroll deductions to your employees is just one more employee benefit that shows workers you care about them and their interests.

Event Sponsorship: Demonstrate your commitment to children’s health issues at your own company’s Akron Children’s Hospital event.

Matching Gifts Programs: Match your employees’ contributions to Akron Children’s Hospital and demonstrate good corporate citizenry on your part to your employees

Volunteer Opportunities: In addition to their impact on our patients, volunteers from the business community add a great economic value to the hospital and allow us to direct more dollars to the programs and projects that provide the greatest benefit to our patients.

Altogether, investments from business partners play a critical role in the ongoing success of Akron Children’s Hospital, and we value the support of small and large businesses alike in providing the highest quality pediatric specialty care.
