Making a corporate contribution is a meaningful way to take a leadership role in improving the quality of life for children, youth and their families. Corporate engagement publicly demonstrates that your business or company genuinely cares for the community. Corporate support is one of the best methods for increasing the community impact of programs and services. DCAF works to develop win-win partnerships with all contributors and supporters.
Partnering with DCAF goes beyond a donation or sponsorship. As a result, there are a variety of ways a business or corporation can assist. You and your colleagues could initiate and plan a special event to support DCAF. In addition, this leads to employee engagement opportunities which are fantastic ways to build team spirit and improve employee morale. There is an exhaustive list of corporate engagement options available, upon request. Activations include the following: speaking opportunities, social media, sampling and coupons, volunteering, cause marketing, employee grants, payroll deduction programs and traditional co-marketing partnerships. DCAF maximizes the ROI for all business and corporate supporters. An understanding of both organization’s goals and objectives is a great place to start. Let’s have a discussion to determine how this opportunity can benefit both organizations.
Consider partnering with DCAF to help double or triple donations for children and youth. Become a corporate matching partner. As a result, encourage donors to participate knowing that your business or corporation is matching their generosity with your generosity.

Corporate Spotlight – Sunspace
Sunspace Sunrooms is a relatively new supporter for DCAF. However, this Newcastle based business is a very active supporter of the Durham community. Best known as the specialists in custom designed Sunrooms, Screen Rooms, Patio Covers, Porch Enclosures, Decks, Railings, Sunshades and WeatherMaster Porch Windows & Doors. Built to extend enjoyment of your indoor/outdoor living space!
In 2020, during COVID – this sunroom manufacturing specialist extended their dedication as they shared their kindness and commitment to support children and youth in Durham through their top-level support of DCAF’s Fore The Future Golf Classic. The support of Sunspace included their sponsorship along with the hosting of a specialty hole – Break The Vinyl. Golfers were invited to do their best to drive a golf ball through the patented WeatherMaster vinyl used in the sunroom’s manufactured by Sunspace. No one was able to break through the vinyl. In fact, very few were actually able to hit the target. Those who did hit the target were eligible for some great prizes. Thanks to Sunspace, over $40,000 was raised to support DCAF’s Post-Secondary Bursary Program.
In 2021, with the increase in support required for families in vulnerable situations – Sunspace has donated an additional $10,000 to assist children and youth in our community. The 2021 Fore-The-Future Golf Classic was once again supported by Sunspace Sunrooms. DCAF’s Camps for Kids program is also very pleased to welcome Sunspace Sunrooms as a supporter. Special thanks to the entire team and the ownership at Sunspace Sunrooms for their support and generosity. Together we are truly working to ensure that No Child, Youth or Family Shall Be Left Behind.
