Employee engagement
There are a wide range of activities and giving opportunities to engage your employees, raise your corporate profile and benefit Sunnybrook. For example, your employees could organize a third-party event - like a golf tournament or a benefit concert - and donate the proceeds to the Sunnybrook program of your choice.

We offer your staff easy to use web-based tools to help them organize their fundraising teams, ask for donations and keep track of the funds raised.

Corporate matching
A matching gift is a donation made by an employer that matches the amount of an employee's gift. Depending on the matching strategy a company has in place, it may match an employee's gift dollar-for-dollar or in multiples, resulting in a much larger more impactful gift. Corporate matching demonstrates to your employees that you support their charitable giving and want to boost the community.

Cause-related marketing
Cause-related marketing brings together a for-profit business and a non-profit organization for their mutual benefit. One example of cause-related marketing is a transactional gift program, where shoppers are asked to add a donation onto their purchases at check out.

Programs like these raise your public profile while raising important funds for Sunnybrook. They can increase customer loyalty by demonstrating your commitment to the community.

Studies show cause-related marketing is good for business.


A 2010 Edelman Good Purpose Study found 66 per cent of global consumers would recommend a brand's products or services if there is a good cause behind them. The same study found 64 per cent believe it's no longer enough for corporations to give money; they must integrate good causes into their everyday business.

There are endless possibilities for cause-related marketing opportunities. Our dedicated Corporate Partnership team will collaborate with you to determine a program that works best for your organization.
