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 demonstrates that your business or company genuinely cares for the community. 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. This leads to employee engagement opportunities which are great ways to build your team spirit and improve employee morale. There is an exhaustive list of corporate engagement opportunities. Activations may include the following: speaking opportunities, social media, sampling and coupons, cause marketing and traditional logo placement. 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.
Contact Executive Director, Dennis Ullman to set-up a meeting and begin to explore the possibilities. Be sure to ask about Currency for Kids, a unique and innovative program. Together we are working to ensure that No Child Shall Be Left Behind.
Since the late sixties, General Motors Canada employees have supported Sharon’s Kids. The legacy of Sharon Clark is still being maintained by General Motors Canada today. In the fall of 2019, General Motors donated the last pick-up truck to roll off the line from the Oshawa Assembly Plant. The GM Lottery generated over $117,000 in support of Sharon’s Kids and the Post-Secondary Bursary Program.
With the negative impacts of COVID-19 being experienced by children, youth and families. General Motors Canada continued their support of Sharon’s Kids, Holiday Hope and DCAF. In 2020, GM Canada donated two Corvettes as part of Corvettes for Kids. An incredible online auction that raised over $368,000. Special thanks also to Paul Sadlon Motors and Manheim Auctions. This incredible level of supported made such an impact on Sharon’s Kids and Holiday Hope.
The generosity continued as GM employees donated over $20,000 in toys, clothing and gift cards to assist over 30 children, youth and families living in vulnerable situations. In 2021, General Motors Canada also provided an additional donation of $10,000. Funds raised by General Motors Canada help to support many programs. Along with Sharon’s Kids and Holiday Hope, other program assistance included Post-Secondary Bursary Program, Mentoring for Success and Positive Transitions for Youth. Thank you to General Motors Canada for being an incredible community partner.
