Corporate Partnerships

In very good company

Businesses that choose to align themselves with SCIO are forward-thinking organizations that see the good they can do in this province. There are endless opportunities to match your business goals with our mission and activities. The result? A strong, creative partnership that changes things, for the better.

Choose your partner

The great benefits for your company in partnering with SCIO include exposure to a dynamic community of over 30,000 clients, families and friends from across the province and Canada.

In addition, your company earns a reputation as a caring and generous corporate citizen who makes a difference in your community. Your employees are buoyed by your commitment to an exceptional cause and are energized to help improve accessibility and support services in our province.

We will work with you to create a customized corporate engagement plan, which can include sponsorships, cause-related marketing programs, participation in fundraising events, corporate and employee volunteering, and workplace giving.

As a small grass roots non-profit, we guarantee that your corporate participation will have great impact for people living with a spinal cord injury in your community and across the province, and satisfy your business partnership needs.

Partnership options

The following partnerships offer many benefits including enhanced brand awareness, community reputation and employee spirit.

Philanthropy

As a registered Canadian charity with over 73 years of history in Ontario, we will provide you with tax benefits, a tax receipt and recognition for your financial support. You also receive peace of mind from knowing your investment in SCIO directly impacts the services, support and advocacy we provide to strengthen our community.

Sponsorship

Here are a few dynamic and engaging sponsorship opportunities to consider:

  • Promote a strong presence of your company at popular community events in Toronto and across the province.
  • Outline your business offerings on a relevant topic within the Living with an SCI section of our website (give us your logo, ad and a link to your content and we’re good to go!)
  • Become a go-to company for our community by getting listed. Your brand on our popular online business directory is a smart match.
  • Get your workforce up to speed on expert disability awareness training for your HR department and staff. Online or in person, our training is developed and often delivered by those with lived experience.

Cause-related marketing

Harness the brand equity of SCIO by creating a special promotion that is mutually beneficial, advertises your company’s brand and supports a cause close to the hearts of your customers and employees.

Corporate teams

Form a corporate team to participate in fun activities-based events such as golf, curling, snowboarding or lawn bowling. There’s always something exciting going on at SCIO.

Employee engagement and volunteering

Getting involved with SCIO is a fantastic team-building and volunteer opportunity that will motivate and unite your employees. On your company employee volunteer day, consider coming to work for us. We can customize an opportunity that helps you to meet your business and social responsibility goals while raising your company’s profile in the community.
