At Long Island Alzheimer's Foundation (LIAF), we are proud to partner with corporations who join us to help us continue toward our mission of improving the quality of life for individuals living with Alzheimer's disease and related memory disorders — as well as their caregivers.
In addition to corporate donations and corporate sponsorships, we regularly host company volunteer days — where teams spend hours, half days, or whole days with the seniors at LIAF. In many instances, organizations use the LIAF volunteering opportunities in place of traditional team building exercises.
When your company becomes a corporate partner to the Long Island Alzheimer's Foundation, you can leverage the partnership in several ways:
If you're looking for a way to lower your corporate tax liability, all cash or cash equivalent donations to the Long Island Alzheimer's Foundation is tax deductible.
Most importantly, you can rest assured your corporate donations will be put to great use. We are a local 501(3)(c) nonprofit organization with deep roots throughout the Long Island, Nassau County, and Queens County area. We pride ourselves on our transparency and ethics. You can view the past three years of our financial records.
Your philanthropic donations will not go unnoticed in the Long Island, Nassau County, and Queens County area. Since we are a local nonprofit, we heavily rely on the media and our website to spread the word about the great work we're doing. Anytime you make a donation or partner with us for an event, your business can gain exposure by doing so.
Today, there are several nonprofits vying for your limited corporate dollars. As a result, it's important for you to choose wisely and choose a nonprofit that can make the biggest impact and possibly provide the biggest return. Serving the Alzheimer's community is this cause. Virtually everyone has a grandparent, a parent, or sibling over the age of 65; and 5.3 million people in the United States over the age of 65 are living with Alzheimer's dementia. By partnering with LIAF, you'll be supporting one of the last remaining unifying rallying causes that virtually affects everyone.
According to a recently release study by the marketing firm Cone LLC, an astonishing 94% of consumers will switch brands if one supported a cause while another didn't — when factors like product type and cost are made equal. And by supporting LIAF, you'll be supporting a cause that impacts millions of Americans.
Volunteering with the Long Island Alzheimer's Foundation can be an excellent tool to bolster your brand's public profile throughout the Nassau County and Queens County area and improve public perception. However, most of our corporate volunteer partners report the experience helps forge valuable internal relationships, build teamwork, and improve company morale.
When you schedule a corporate volunteering event at LIAF, your employees will have the opportunity to interact with each other in a setting outside of work. They will work together for an undeniably common good cause — improving the lives of those living with Alzheimer's disease. In many instances, office quarrels are settled when the more compassionate side of your workers is put on display.
Another common benefit is improved office communication. By working in unison with a common goal, our environment has the tendency to stimulate communication and bolster team building. And when your employees return to the office or field, the shared 'feel-good' experience at LIAF can have a profound effect on productivity.
Virtually everyone wants to be proud of where they work and the type of work they do. In addition, most people want to feel their work plays into the greater good of society. Scheduling regular volunteer days at LIAF can help you meet this need. At the same time, corporate volunteer days can instill a sense of pride in your employees — knowing their organization isn't only focused on the bottom line.
Corporate volunteer trips can be tailored as much as possible to help meet your organization's goals. In either case, your employees will walk away with shared memories. We alway suggest you host a recap for everyone to discuss their experiences and to discover emotional commonalities to create connections and build teamwork.
One of the key reasons local companies choose to volunteer at LIAF instead of team building exercises is the cost. LIAF corporate volunteering costs nothing, while team building exercises come with a hefty price tag. Both LIAF volunteering and team building can build teamwork, bolster communication, bolster office relationships, and work to improve productivity. Corporate volunteering at LIAF can work to instill your employees with a sense of greater good and civic duty. In addition, we may be able to structure your volunteer day to best meet the strategic initiatives of your organization.
Thank you in advance for your financial generosity and for your time. Both are greatly appreciated and play a vital role in empowering us to impact the lives of families living with Alzheimer's disease. We encourage you to give us a call at (516) 767-6856 to discuss our LIAF corporate volunteering opportunities and how we may be able to help you meet your goals.
