We're here for those that have served our country, and you can be too. A corporate sponsorship is a great way to make a huge difference to Veterans with mental health difficulties resulting from military service.
The basis of Veterans With Dogs' mission is on creating life-changing partnerships. We fulfil our mission by creating life-changing partnerships between our former service personnel and assistance dogs. That effort is supported and made possible through our partnerships with individual supporters, communities, organisations and corporations.
We welcome corporate partnerships as a means for us to realise financial support and the ability to reach more people about our programmes. In turn, a partnership with VWD can help a company achieve some significant business benefits such as an enhanced image with customers, the demonstration of a commitment to social responsibility, the creation of product differentiation, the generation of an emotional connection to customers, and securing and retaining of valued employees.
Veterans With Dogs do not charge for the services we provide to recipients, so we must raise all funds necessary to support the placement of our assistance dogs. Assistance dog sponsorships are instrumental in covering the costs associated with raising, training, boarding, lifetime medical care, and placement of an assistance dog with an individual who has a mental health condition. Veterans With Dogs is committed to covering the associated costs for the life of every assistance dog placed with a Veteran. This responsibility means we need considerable help to continue our mission.
A corporate partnership with us can:
- Enhance the image of your company by displaying your commitment to support the ex-forces community.
- Raise the profile of your company within the business community.
- Improve customer and client relationships by displaying your good will.
- Create links to other companies supporting Veterans With Dogs.
- Improve company morale by bringing employees together to support somethingthat is separate from work.
- Create marketing opportunities by reaching out and connecting with the wider community.
How do corporate partnerships work?
Choose Veterans With Dogs as your 'Charity of the Year'
Fundraising is a great way to bring employees together and can improve personal development and team building. It is a clear indication of your company’s commitment to the local community, which can improve customer and client relations. Companies can further motivate their staff to get involved by offering to match their efforts.
If employees do not have the time to organise a fundraising event, they could always take part in someone else's, such as the London Marathon or a local fun run.
Even something as simple as putting one of our collecting tins in your reception area would be of great benefit.
Whether you’re fundraising as a small team or as an entire organisation, perhaps consider raising money for Veterans With Dogs at your place of work. Veterans With Dogs would be more than happy to support your company’s corporate social responsibility programme and engage your employees.
