Becoming a corporate supporter of North York General benefits your bottom line while providing the Hospital with much-needed funding. Our corporate donors are organizations that invest in the health and well-being of the community. Corporate philanthropy can have a significant impact on critical community needs, while furthering organizational goals and generating visibility both in the community and within your organization.
Your organization can dedicate an annual and/or pledged gift to a specific area of the hospital, or a particular piece of equipment. Recognition for corporate donations may include naming rights, a feature on the corporate section of our inspiration gallery to be unveiled in late 2016, listing in our publications, including our Report to the Community, newsletter and website.
In addition to philanthropic support, there are many different ways your organization can invest in the health care of our shared community:
Cause Related Marketing
Cause related marketing is a partnership between your organization and North York General Foundation that engages consumers in a cause that closely connects our organizations’ missions and values. Cause related marketing gives you the opportunity to engage staff, clients and customers while creating a work environment that builds employee morale and team spirit. With a cause marketing campaign, your organization can stand out from the competition, increase sales and demonstrate to customers that you believe in giving back to the community.
Your company can also help by donating products or services through in-kind donations. By donating products or services, we are able to reduce our administrative and event costs and maximize our fundraising efforts to support our community.
Employee giving is an opportunity to elevate employee morale, boost motivation and increase employee retention. Employee giving can be achieved in a number of ways, including:
Employee Payroll Deductions
Payroll deductions are one of the easiest ways for employees to make a positive impact in their community. Employees who make contributions through payroll deduction will see their charitable donation amount appear on their employment record or T4.
Make your employees’ gifts go even further by matching their gifts. A matching gift program will encourage employee giving, show your support for your employees’ charitable interests and make an even bigger difference to patients at North York General. By matching your employees’ gifts, both your employees and your organization are eligible for charitable tax receipts or gift acknowledgement.
Host a Third Party Event
