By joining in partnership with Seva, businesses can play an important role in changing lives, while also inspiring their employees, gain recognition for their philanthropy and foster a reputation for social responsibility.

There are many ways companies can become involved in Seva's work:

Sponsorship:

Sponsorship opportunities range from one-time sponsorship of events such as our signature concert "Motown Meltdown" or multi-year funding of specific overseas projects. Seva would be happy to discuss sponsorship options, large or small, that fit your corporation's market and interests.

Cause-related marketing:

Align your brand with Seva Canada. Your corporation can distinguish itself from competitors through cross merchandising, promotions and co-branded advertisements, with a portion of sales directly supporting Seva Canada's work.

Workplace giving and matching gifts:

Seva Canada is extremely grateful to the corporations that support our sight programs through workplace giving and matching programs. Workplace giving is a convenient way for employees to support Seva by making charitable contributions through automatic payroll deduction. Many corporations choose to demonstrate their commitment to philanthropy by matching charitable contributions made by employees.

Employee fundraising:

If you have an idea to raise funds among your colleagues, we'd love to hear from you. For ideas please visit our personal fundraising campaigns page and independent fundraising events page.

Gifts-in-kind:

Over the years Seva has benefited from generous in-kind donations of equipment and supplies for our Vancouver office and specific ophthalmic supplies requested by our overseas partners. Sometimes costs of shipping makes sending medical and ophthalmic supplies overseas prohibitive, so each gift-in-kind must by carefully considered.

Public awareness:

A simple and no- or low-cost way to support Seva through raising public awareness of Seva's work. Your corporation can help Seva by displaying brochures in your office or retail locations, by placing inserts or notices in your customer mailings or publications, or by hosting informational sessions for your staff or clients.
