Group Engagement

Corporate Matching

Many employers have what is known as a “corporate matching” program in which the employer will match an employee’s donation to a tax-deductible nonprofit organization. These programs are an excellent way to double the funds you plan to donate to a nonprofit organization. Some employers also have a foundation or other program that will make a donation to a nonprofit organization of your choice to recognize your volunteer activity. If you are interested in making a gift to Our Response, please check with your employer to determine whether it has a program that would enable you to multiply your gift.

Event Sponsorship

Since Our Response was founded, businesses and churches have provided financial donations to cover the costs of Our Response events. These tax-deductible sponsorships enable all funds raised during the events to further the development efforts in Kivuruga, Rwanda. Event sponsors are publicly recognized for their support. Our Response invites you to take advantage of the many sponsorship opportunities that are provided to organizations throughout the year.

Current Organizational Partners

No formal agreement is required to be considered an organizational partner of Our Response.  Instead, organizational partners are those entities that promote Our Response events, encourage individuals to get involved with Our Response, and engage in special events that Our Response hosts throughout the year. Our Response has resources available for events specific to your organization.
