Opportunities for corporate partnerships

There are many ways organizations can partner with the Reeve Foundation, and in so doing engage their workforce while doing good. From marathons to volunteering, bespoke events to program sponsorship – take a look at the ways we can work together below or get in touch to discuss options.

Lunch & Learn

The Reeve Foundation Lunch & Learn provides your organization with a deep dive into the latest Reeve Foundation research and initiatives with the convenience of staying at headquarters or on your corporate campus.

Through top researchers in the field, Reeve Foundation senior leadership, and members of the paralysis community, your employees will learn about the breakthroughs we are making with epidural stimulation – and how that groundbreaking initiative is ‘reversing’ permanent conditions like paralysis.

Benefits of hosting a Lunch & Learn:
  • Educate your employees on research and quality of initiatives that could impact over 1.3 million Americans living with paralysis
  • Recognition in Reeve Foundation blog and email newsletter
  • Corporate partner acknowledgement in Annual Report and on ChristopherReeve.org

Volunteer day

In one day, volunteers learn about the many programs and research developments initiated through the Reeve Foundation and participate in a volunteer activity at Reeve Foundation headquarters or at an off-site location.

Volunteer activities could include:
  • Help build or clean up an accessible playground
  • Participate in a sporting event at an adaptive camp or after-school program
  • Build an accessible garden or trail
  • Referee a local wheelchair basketball tournament

We will work with you to identify a volunteer project for the paralysis community that is both impactful and meets the needs of your organization and volunteers.
