Office of Corporate Alliances sponsored by Signet Jewelers, Ltd.

The support we receive from the corporate community is essential to our ability to deliver our mission successfully.

With your support of Akron Children’s, you are investing in children from communities across a 28-county geographic footprint. The total economic impact for Children’s Hospital has been estimated at more than $1 billion annually.

Corporate Gifts play a critical role in funding a number of programs in pediatric research, family services, advocacy and charity care. While companies may make unrestricted contributions to the hospital, companies may also give to specific hospital departments, specialty areas and programs consistent with a company’s business objectives.

Cause-Related Marketing provides your company the opportunity to make a socially responsible investment and a smart business move when we develop a cause marketing campaign together. 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. 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, clients and employees.

Employee giving programs provide payroll deductions to your employees which demonstrates that you care about them, as well as their philanthropic interests.

Event sponsorships enable your brand to receive meaningful exposure when you demonstrate your commitment to children’s health issues at an Akron Children’s Hospital event.

Matching gift programs demonstrate good corporate citizenry on your part when you match your employees' donations.

In-kind gifts help Akron Children’s Hospital fulfill its mission of caring for children, and to do so more efficiently. Benefits to companies include reduction of inventory-carrying costs, public recognition, stronger community product support, and tax deduction of up to twice the cost in some cases.

Volunteer opportunities impact our patients and also add a great economic value to the hospital which enables us to direct more dollars to our patient care programs and projects.

Companies interested in making an investment in their community have a partner in Akron Children’s Hospital, and we value the support of small and large businesses alike in providing the highest quality pediatric specialty care. Our staff will work closely with your company to design a custom partnership tailored to your company’s needs and giving priorities to best fit the mission of your organization and ours.
