Corporate Giving

Foundation and corporate giving advances lifesaving healthcare and supports the innovative programs we provide.

Many foundations (including family foundations), donor-advised funds and corporations that share our values choose to align their name with our ministry. We work with each organization to determine a giving opportunity that best suits its mission and resources, ensuring its customers and employees are proud to be a part of a business that helps our community in such a lasting way.

  • Cause Marketing

    Our Lady of the Lake has been a long-time beneficiary of companies who leverage their business to generate support for hospital programs. Our cause marketing program works closely with companies to tie their business or products to causes within Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital.

    Cause marketing programs can bolster employee morale while also improving engagement with consumers. Industry research has found that:

    • Americans are likely to switch brands to one that supports a cause if price and quality are equal.
    • Consumers have a more positive image of a company that supports a cause they care about.
    • Consumers want companies to tell them what they are doing to benefit a cause.

    Examples of cause marketing include:

    • Pledging a percentage of sales, proceeds or a predetermined sum
    • Donating in a client’s name in lieu of gifts, awards, etc.
    • Point of Sale
      • Selling paper icons at the register
      • Providing change collection canisters or “round up” promotions

    To get started with a cause marketing campaign to support Our Lady of the Lake, please contact: Courtney Switzer, Children's Miracle Network Specialist, courtney.bowen@fmolhs.org.

  • Employee Engagement

    Employee giving programs can boost morale and engage your employees in meaningful philanthropy. When an employee feels their company shares their beliefs, productivity increases.

    In a recent national survey, 64% of employees say opportunities to support causes and issues they care about are as important as wellness programs or tuition reimbursements.

    You can retain outstanding employees while giving back to your community through an Employee Engagement program partnered with Our Lady of the Lake. Offering giving programs for employees will ensure your company is attractive to the top talent of the future.
