Corporate giving offers wide-ranging bottom line benefits, including competitive advantage in attracting and retaining employees, closer relationships with community leaders and officials, greater customer loyalty, increased positive name recognition and brand awareness, and enhanced reputation and standing in the community.
The Accokeek Foundation offers flexible sponsorship opportunities, at every financial level, for businesses seeking to invest in the local community. Situated in Prince George’s County, Maryland, the Accokeek Foundation is only about 12 miles from the nation’s capital and serves about 30,000 visitors each year. Events such as the Accokeek Foundation’s annual African American Heritage Day attract visitors from all over the Washington, DC, metropolitan area and beyond. Our website has more than 300,000 visitors per year. Our e-mail blasts go to hundreds of media outlets and thousands of other organizations and personal addresses, and that list is growing every day.
More than 80 percent of our income directly supports programs. Corporate partners play an important role in helping us serve the public:
- Tell your contacts about the Accokeek Foundation’s events and programs through your website, newsletter, and employee meetings. Your clients and employees will appreciate knowing about high-quality, affordable education and recreation activities.
- Enable your employees to support us through your workplace giving campaign. Consider offering an employer matching gift to the Accokeek Foundation as a way to help your employees give back to the community.
- Let us help you organize a meaningful volunteer opportunity for your staff. Our corporate volunteers tell us that the beautiful setting and wide variety of projects provide perfect team building experiences.
- Consider making a grant or other contribution to support an event or initiative. Through your corporate foundation or corporate outreach program, your cash or in-kind gifts are an effective way to show your commitment to the community, the environment, historic preservation, and education.
