How can I get involved as a Corporate Partner?

​We look forward to collaborating with companies who are aligned with our values and are passionate about community betterment, practicing dignity, and advocacy for inclusion.

 

We have four different ways of classifying your involvement: Becoming a Good Neighbour, Employee Engagement, Becoming a Corporate Advocate, and Building Financial Stability.

Become a Good Neighbour

We believe in giving Edmontonians a chance to be great community partners through our Good Neighbour’s Commitment. Through this commitment, we are asking organizations and individuals to partner with us to build empathy and understanding for our community members. We want to create a respectful dialogue around some tough issues that can often have complicated answers. We want everyone to feel safe and happy in our communities in Edmonton, and the more ways that we can partner together to achieve this goal, the better.

 

This can include:

  • touring our Community Centre

  • inviting a Boyle Street staff member into your office for a presentation

  • taking some Boyle Street-led professional development training

  • hiring our social enterprise hiregood.ca

  • engaging with us on social media

Employee Engagement

We believe in giving employees an opportunity to give back in their workplaces. Individuals within organizations and corporations can support us in various ways, and we are always grateful for any support they provide. This can happen in a variety of ways, as we are here to support you in creating giving back opportunities for your organization.

 

This can include:

  • volunteering at our Community Centre

  • organizing in-kind donation drives

  • providing cash donations

  • attending our annual events

Becoming a Corporate Advocate

A corporate advocate is an organization whose values align with Boyle Street Community Services', and are willing to advocate on our behalf. As a corporate advocate, we are asking you to help us make connections within the business community and to speak to our values as an organization when leveraging your connections. We are also looking to our advocates to use their voice regarding issues that directly affect us and the community we serve. 

This can include:

  • having our leadership meet with yours

  • committing to a shared vision for our community

  • fostering and leveraging connections

  • mutually featuring success stories

Building Financial Stability

We are looking for organizations, corporations and businesses to pledge support to us in a big way. This can include one time or ongoing commitments to financial support that allow Boyle Street Community Services to continue to grow and carry out its values and programs in effective and innovative ways.

 

This can include:

  • cash donations

  • large in-kind donations

  • annual financial contributions
