There are different ways that individuals or businesses can support mentoring. Individuals can donate to support our work to help mentoring programs thrive and grow. Businesses can sponsor mentoring in a variety of ways and we can customize an approach that’s right for your company.
Mentoring programs need more than mentors and money to succeed. Do you or your business have services and skills you can offer to a mentoring program? Whether it's help with technology, marketing, legal, accounting, strategic planning or fundraising we can help you find a program that could benefit from your talents. Contact Rich Greif, Director of Marketing and Public Awareness at rgreif (at) massmentors (dot) org.
Some companies also have other resources they can share such as ticket donations for theater or sporting events that we can distribute to mentor/mentee pairs in our network or significant gifts or experiences we can use for fundraising auctions. Items might include, but are not limited to: event tickets, sports memorabilia, game or concert experiences, celebrity dinners, etc. Contact Vanessa Plant, Director of Development and Partnerships, at vplant (at) massmentors (dot) org.
There are lots of ways to use your business' space to help a mentoring program. Host an information session for employees about mentoring, host a fundraiser, friendraiser or board meeting for a mentoring program, or perhaps you have unused space in your office to house a mentoring organization. Contact Rich Greif, Director of Marketing and Public Awareness at rgreif (at) massmentors (dot) org.
You can make a difference simply by helping us raise awareness of the need for mentors and resources to support mentoring programs. Check out our Advocacy page or contact Elena Sokolow-Kaufman, Manager of Government Relations at eskaufman (at) massmentors (dot) org.
