The Raptor Center provides corporations opportunities to sponsor events, trail features, social media channels, and other high-profile outlets. Depending on the level you choose, sponsorship packages may include tickets, sponsorship recognition on signage or printed materials, speaking opportunities or naming rights.
CORPORATE FOUNDATION GRANTS
Some companies create charitable foundations to manage their annual donations to charitable causes. The Raptor Center has forged long term relationships with corporate foundations in order to partner with them to help them meet their goals for the Charlotte region. Priorities such as education, research, the environment, children, access, and volunteerism drive corporations to give to the Raptor Center to support our service to this community.
Matching gifts represent about $20,000/year in the Raptor Center’s annual giving total. Many employers will match their employee’s financial contributions and/or your volunteer efforts to help the Raptor Center. To find out if your employer matches charitable contributions or to pick up a matching gift form, please speak to a Human Resources representative at your company.
Service on our Board of Directors is an important part of how we work with companies. Many companies encourage their employees, especially their leadership, to be part of a non-profit organization by serving on the board of directors. Our board members are advisors, partners, and experts who assist the staff in the strategic planning and direction of the organization.
