Office of Advancement

Corporate Giving

Corporate contributions have been an important source of support in meeting an array of needs at the James P. Wilmot Cancer Institute, including funds for research initiatives, construction of scientific and clinical facilities, faculty recruitment and retention, and the enhancement of patient experiences.

Through corporate support your company can boost community visibility and achieve marketing objectives. Our team will work with your company to produce a customized program to support the individual needs of your business.

Directing your business to locally support the Wilmot Cancer Institute is more crucial than ever. Your local support helps provide the best care close to home so our family, friends and colleagues do not have to travel to fight this terrible disease.

Corporate support opportunities include:

Outright gifts

Making a gift will help research, facility recruitment and retention, patient needs and care.

Contribution of Products and Services

Contributing tangible goods, products or services are extremely beneficial to our events and programs because they subsidize many of our cost, which allow more funds to go directly to cancer research and treatment.

Corporate Co-Ventures

Create a special promotion that is mutually beneficial, promoting your company brand, products and services, while supporting a cause close to the hearts of your customers and employees.

Events Sponsorship

Appeal to your target market, create brand awareness and show your commitment to the community by sponsoring one of our prominent fundraising events.

Event Hosting

Increase company awareness by organizing an event on behalf of the Wilmot Cancer Institute.

Recognition of Business Associates or Employees

We can send a charitable gift card, on your behalf, to recognize or appreciate a business associate or employee. You can also give a business associate a ticket to one of our popular fundraising events as a gesture of appreciation or a sales initiative.

Staff Participation

Build staff moral and teamwork by forming a corporate team to participate or volunteer for a fundraising event. Offer the opportunity to an employee to make a gift through a payroll deduction and maximize their efforts through matching their charitable contribution.
