There are several ways for companies and employers to support the Foundation; including Employer Matching and Volunteer Service Grants, Payroll Deductions, and Corporate Sponsorship.
Employer Matching Funds/Volunteer Service Grants
Many companies have demonstrated their support to Phi Chi Theta by matching, or even multiplying, their employees' gifts to the Foundation. Some companies are committed to providing support to organizations where staff members are actively and substantially engaged as volunteers. Companies that have supported the Foundation through matching gift programs include Booz Allen Hamilton, State Farm Foundation, PepsiCo Foundation, AIG, and First Tennessee Bank.
Ask whether your employer participates in such a program. Certain restrictions apply to matching gifts; please consult your company's personnel office for further information.
Many companies allow their employees to designate payroll deductions to their favorite charities. Through a simple payroll deduction, you can designate an amount to be deducted from each paycheck and have it donated to the Foundation. Please consult with your company's personnel office for further information.
The Foundation awards grants annually to Phi Chi Theta for use in sponsoring educational and leadership programs at the National Chapter Meeting or Regional Conferences. We are looking for corporations that would be willing to make a financial investment to be a sponsor for the Scholarship Award Luncheon and Educational Seminars that the Foundation will be sponsoring at the National Chapter Meeting. Through your active sponsorship your company will obtain visibility and access to our diverse and professional membership base.
Additional sponsorship opportunities include having a "Phi Chi Theta Day” or an event where a percentage of gross receipts from the sales of food, merchandise, services, etc. is donated to the Foundation. Many service industry type companies (e.g., cruise lines, restaurants, ice cream shops) are willing to designate a day/time where they will donate a percentage of their receipts to non-profit organizations.
Please contact us at FoundationPrez@phichitheta.org to learn more about our Corporate Sponsorship Program or to discuss sponsorship opportunities.
