Join the generous group of corporations and foundations who are committed to investing in a brighter future for children with disabilities.
Support from our community partners is vital to the transformative work we do every day— but the benefits don’t end with helping to unlock the potential of the 27,000 children in our care. Building relationships that have a lasting impact on both sides means everything to us. By partnering with Kennedy Krieger, you’ll gain visibility with our many stakeholders as an employer, community partner, and important benefactor... that’s networking you can feel good about!
Ready to get involved? There are plenty of opportunities to partner with us:
Building a relationship with Kennedy Krieger is a win-win: Your corporation can ‘walk the talk’ in displaying a dedication to philanthropy, while giving a child the hope of walking for the first time. Plus, your employees and brand reputation will benefit from a culture where compassion is put to action. We gladly accept gifts in the form of cash, matching gifts, in-kind donations and grants.
Our Festival of Trees and ROAR for Kids events events attract thousands of participants—and major media coverage. In fact, Festival of Trees is the largest event of its kind on the East Coast. As a sponsor, you will share those spotlights and send a strong message to your customers, partners and employees that you’re making a difference in the lives of children with special needs.
The Women's Initiative Network hosts two signature events each year where more than 300 community stakeholders committed to supporting Baltimore's business, retail and nonprofit communities are welcomed. The Wine Walkabout and Hats & Horses Benefiting Kennedy Krieger Institute offer sponsorship opportunities. Visit Women's Initiative Network Events to learn more.
‘Matching’ isn’t always a bad thing—at least not when it comes to charitable giving! Many companies participate in matching gift programs that match part or all of their employee’s gift, so contact your Human Resources Department to see if it’s possible for you to double your impact on a child’s life, at no additional cost to you.
Foundation gifts are critical in helping to ensure that groundbreaking discoveries continue to happen every day at Kennedy Krieger—innovations that not only transform the lives of the 27,000 children we serve, but generations to come. If healthcare, education and research are close to the heart of your foundation, partnering with us is an excellent way to support your values and bottom line while building a better future for children with special needs.
The generosity of our corporate and foundation partners goes well beyond financial giving. Your contributions support our innovative research, patient care, and education programs.
