Our Corporate Partners

Our Corporate Partners: Forces for Good

Kidpower turns corporate contributions into dynamic services that have an immediate, lasting, and visible impact.

Our corporate partners have a broad range of priorities. Some want to help make schools safer, more positive places for learning. Some want to help people with disabilities thrive in the workplace and participate fully in their communities. Others want to take action to stop bullying, child abuse, or domestic violence.

They choose Kidpower because:

  1. Our community-based services directly address their priorities — and we get results.
  2. Their contributions directly, exclusively, and entirely benefit the regions or groups they want to help. We guarantee it.
  3. Our focus on solutions communicates confident leadership they are proud to connect with their name.

Corporations help us help others be safer by:

  1. Awarding grant funds to provide services and materials. We ensure that every dollar is used in the city, county, or region the corporation wants to serve and addresses the specific populations they want to help.
  2. Sponsoring local workshops. Businesses of any size can show their commitment to safety by sponsoring a workshop for a neighborhood school or nonprofit that matters to them.
  3. Matching their employees’ contributions. When individuals offer support that is matched by their employers, their combined generosity has a deeper impact.

Please call Program Manager Erika Leonard at (510) 334-2242 or email her to share more about your own company’s giving goals and to learn how our work can further those goals. We are registered with Network for Good and are registered as charitable, nongovernmental organizations in each country we serve.
