The Sojourner House Corporate Sponsorship Program provides essential financial support to supplement the limited funding Sojourner House receives from grants, individual donations, and events. Corporate sponsorships are fully tax-deductible and available in three tailored programs to suit your business.
Every day we receive requests for assistance from people in abusive relationships who have nowhere else to turn. Thanks to our corporate sponsors, we are able to offer them and their children support groups, emergency shelter, transitional housing, advocacy, emotional support, counseling, and referrals to over 50 community partners providing additional assistance.
Last year we assisted more than 3,000 new clients. Our corporate sponsors make our work to end domestic and sexual violence possible, and give new hope to people who need a fresh start in life.
If you are interested in becoming a corporate sponsor, please contact our office at 401-861-6191 or e-mail Gloria Greenfield at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The levels of corporate sponsorship include the following:
1. Sustaining Sponsors
Sustaining Sponsors are the foundation of our program and often make a commitment on a multi-year basis to help us plan and deliver long-term services and programs.
Annual donation: $10,000 (only 5 sponsors allowed on this tier)
Contact: Sustaining Sponsors have direct access to the Sojourner House Board of Directors for informal consultation or potential business discussions. The Sojourner House staff or Board is available to make a presentation to your employees or executive management team in order to increase awareness of our work, programs, and the services we offer.
Benefits: Sustaining Sponsors receive recognition on our website, their logo in our newsletters, 5 tickets to our annual masquerade ball, and the opportunity to attend exclusive networking events.
2. Supporting Sponsors
Supporting Sponsors are the core of our program, and although they may not be able to make a commitment to us every year, they are vital to helping us maintain on-going services to our clients.
Annual donation: $3,000
Contact: Supporting Sponsors have the opportunity to have a member of our staff address your employees or executive management team to increase awareness of our work, programs, and services we offer.
Benefits: Supporting Sponsors are recognized on our website, in our newsletters, are invited to select events, and receive two tickets to our annual Masquerade Ball.
3. Community Sponsors
Community Sponsorships are intended to allow smaller local businesses and organizations to provide funding appropriate to their financial means and make a real difference in assisting with our day-to-day operations.
Annual donation: $500 (minimum)
Benefits: Community Sponsors are recognized on our website, have access to our community events, and receive two reduced tickets to our annual Masquerade Ball.
Volunteer Opportunities for Employee Groups:
Events Team: Sojourner House seeks 6-8 professional “people connectors” with event planning experience and strong local networks to join our Events Team.

Sojourner House organizes several social and educational events every season. Events Team members assist with securing venues, sponsors, performers, and other in-kind donations, fundraising, putting on the events, and follow-up responsibilities.
Skills: Strong social networking, digital communication/media skills.
