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

With your support of Akron Children’s, you are investing in children from communities close to home, across the country and around the world. And your support impacts your employees by giving them a resource to care for their family. You are also impacting the community as a whole buy supporting Akron Children’s, which has a total economic estimated at more than $1 billion annually.

There are many ways your company and its employees can support the life-changing work of Akron Children’s:

Corporate Gifts

Corporate Gifts

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. 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.
