Thinking about developing a corporate involvement program with a local school? Read 4imprint’s Newest Blue Paper® and Podcast First
(OSHKOSH, Wis.) – From sponsorships, to fundraising partnerships, to incentive programs and beyond, more and more businesses are partnering with schools through corporate involvement programs. The latest Blue Paper™ and Podcast from promotional products retailer 4imprint, called Corporate Involvement in Schools, provides background on the different types of involvement and delves into the benefits presented to businesses and schools.
“Many businesses are in a position to fill a need within the community or provide resources to future employees,” says Kevin Lyons-Tarr, president for 4imprint. “Corporate involvement is a way to do so while increasing visibility and enhancing reputation through goodwill: A win-win situation.”
Schools that stand to benefit from such involvement are eager for partnerships, too: In a recent study conducted by the Association of Community College Trustees and Collegis, a technology services provider to higher education, 96 percent of community college trustees predicted more corporate involvement in higher education in the form of private/public partnerships.
Corporate Involvement in Schools examines …
• The varying scope of involvement
• Examples of successful involvement programs
• Steps businesses can take to assess the need for a corporate involvement program in the community
• How to go about developing these programs.
