Corporate Partnerships

Become Part of the Equation

Become an Annual Corporate Partner

Cradles to Crayons reserves this special designation for corporations that annually provide $100,000, $75,000, or $50,000 to support our efforts. As an Annual Corporate Partner, you have the opportunity to customize a plan that maximizes the effect of your philanthropy  while providing meaningful volunteer and engagement opportunities for your employees.

Support our Everyday Essentials Program

When supporting this crucial program, your financial assistance goes directly to providing everyday essentials to the 1 in 3 children in Massachusetts at risk of experiencing Clothing Insecurity — while helping us build additional capacity to serve more children in the years ahead.

Help fund our signature initiatives and events

During the year, Cradles to Crayons presents targeted initiatives that focus on critical seasonal needs. We can tailor support of these signature initiatives and their related events to align with your corporate philanthropy plan.

Engage your employees with hands-on volunteerism

Roll up your sleeves and participate in an impactful, hands-on volunteer activity alongside your colleagues! Whether at The Giving Factory or in your office space, our shifts give volunteers the opportunity to sort, quality check, and package the items we distribute to children across Massachusetts.

Support our Strategic Product Purchase Program

While our successful grassroots model provides the bulk of our inventory, community donations can vary widely from week to week and year to year. We created our Strategic Product Purchase Program to address the inventory shortfalls that occur as a result. Cradles to Crayons has built relationships with local and national retailers, wholesalers, and manufacturers to acquire items at very low costs when the need and opportunity arise — purchasing new items at prices far below retail value.

Learn more about our Ready for Learning Initiative and how we are helping prepare local children for the upcoming school year here.

Unlike their peers, kids from low-income or homeless families lack basic school supplies that provide them with a real chance to learn and succeed. Ready for Learning’s signature event, Backpack-A-Thon®, brings together more than 1,100 volunteers, primarily corporate, to stuff thousands of backpacks for kids to feel prepared for a year of learning. Backpack-A-Thon® is a high-energy corporate event fueled by great spirit and friendly competition.
