There are several ways for your company to support CfY!

Host a Lunch & Learn – A member from our Program Team will provide a presentation about our program to employees at lunchtime. Any interested individuals can then sign-up to become a mentor! Please contact our Program Manager at PM@communityforyouth.org to schedule a Lunch & Learn.

Sponsor a Workshop – When we’re in person – we provide dinner or snacks for both mentors and students at every workshop we facilitate at CfY. They rely on that food, and we rely on donations from businesses in order to provide it. If you or the company you work for would like to donate food for our workshops, please contact Matt at kaylene@communityforyouth.org.

Sponsor our Annual Gala – Sponsor a table or sponsor at a higher level for our Annual Gala. Sponsorship includes recognition of your company at the event, as well as your logo and ad space in our program, depending on your sponsorship level. Please contact Stephen at matthew@communityforyouth.org if you are interested in sponsoring our event.

Donate Tickets/Experiences – Does your company have access to tickets to sporting events, theatre, or other events? Consider donating your tickets to CfY! Our students and mentors would love to use these tickets as a way to experience new things together. Please contact Matthew at matthew@communityforyouth.org to donate.
