Corporate Support

Become an Annual Corporate Partner

Showcase your company’s commitment to LGBTQ youth by becoming an annual corporate partner. Annual corporate partners are recognized at all SMYAL events including our signature Fall Brunch fundraiser, on our website throughout the year, in email communications to donors and supporters, and through other marketing initiatives. Corporate partners also receive complimentary tickets to all SMYAL events based on their level of support. This comprehensive partnership truly allows a corporation to make a significant impact on the lives of LGBTQ youth. To become an Annual Corporate Partner or for more information, contact Jason Laney at jason.laney@smyal.org.

Become a sponsor of a SMYAL event

SMYAL events provide a wonderful opportunity for your company to showcase its support of LGBTQ youth and the LGBTQ community. Our premiere event of the year, Fall Brunch, draws more than 750 dedicated supporters and donors while offering a range of sponsorship and recognition opportunities. Other SMYAL events throughout the year also offer unique sponsorship opportunities for lawyers, young donors, and major donors. Contact Jason Laney at jason.laney@smyal.org for additional sponsorship information.

Engage your employee resource group

Many pride or LGBTQ employee resource groups engage with SMYAL throughout the year. Engagements include organizing tables for our Fall Brunch fundraiser, promoting SMYAL fundraising events to their members and employees, holding fundraising events and happy hours in support of LGBTQ youth, and organizing volunteer opportunities for employee resource group members.

Volunteer at SMYAL

A great way for your company to engage with SMYAL is to host a volunteer day at our youth center. Employees can engage in fun and impactful activities that directly support LGBTQ youth. We can tailor the volunteer experience to your group size and abilities. For more information, contact Tim Saxton at tim.saxton@smyal.org.

Corporate Matches

Does your company have a charitable matching opportunity? If so, we hope that you will consider donating to SMYAL through your corporation and have your contribution matched. Some companies even match up to three times what the employee donates and this can magnify your support of LGBTQ youth. Check with your human resources department to inquire if your company matches contributions and if SMYAL qualifies as a 501(c)(3) social service organization.
