Corporate Mission Partner Program

Corporate and Nonprofit Partnerships – A Golden Opportunity

With the Internet at our fingertips, today’s consumers are becoming increasingly aware of where their money is going. This means that corporations need to consider their purpose beyond making money and increasing revenue for their shareholders. More companies are investing in CSR (corporate social responsibility) programs, which dedicate resources to delivering economic, social, and environmental benefits to all stakeholders. CSR’s is not a mandated practice in the US; instead it is something extra that companies do to improve their local and global communities. And partnering with a nonprofit is a win-win for all involved. See our current Corporate Mission Partners.

The Corporate Mission Partner Program offers the perfect CSR investment for companies. This program provides a partnership between companies and As Good as Gold (AGaG) through sponsorships of community, education and animal programs. Businesses who believe in the AGaG Mission are critical to helping us provide rescue, care, and adoption of golden retrievers and golden mixes who are in need. In addition to the direct care of the dogs in our care, AGaG educates the general public about the importance of spaying/neutering, positive training methods, diet and exercise, appropriate medical treatment, and humane care.

Consumers are willing to pay more for products from socially responsible companies. Having a CSR program means allocating resources toward a cause, community, or initiative. It is a way to push innovation, cost savings, brand differentiation, long-term thinking, customer engagement, and employee engagement. AGaG can help companies achieve their CSR goals through our Mission Partner Program. Funds raised through this program will be allocated to our General Fund, and will support items such as veterinary, and medical care for long-term medically fragile and special needs dogs, canine supplies, and special needs food for foster parents. AGaG also pays for regular and specialized types of behavioral training and counseling to increase our dogs’ adoptability and prepares them for their furever homes. And since May 2003, we have also been educating the general public about responsible pet ownership. And a Corporate Mission Partner can help, in a big way, to ensure that all these services continue.

Corporate Mission Partnership Opportunities packages are customized to each company’s objective and can include:

Marketing Opportunities and Brand Visibility: Featuring the company in a variety of ways through AGaG’s many communication and social media channels and on-site signage and materials.

Event Recognition: The visible special events and Meet & Greets conducted by AGaG provide a unique opportunity to reach a captive audience.

Unique Employee/Client Experiences: Group volunteer days, branding/promotional opportunities, event invitations, and even “surprise” fur baby visits are just some of the many exciting opportunities offered exclusively to Corporate Mission Partners supporting AGaG.

Partnering with nonprofits allows businesses to give back to the community, provide their employees with more satisfying work experiences, and solidify their reputation as a “good guy”. Consumers do gravitate toward organizations making a positive difference. By partnering with nonprofits, companies are receiving a number of benefits that support their bottom line.
