Corporate Partnership Program

Since 1994, business leaders across Central Oregon have been at the forefront of support and advocacy for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Bend. Our partners are friends and benefactors who truly believe in a place where who you are, where you’re from, and the circumstances that surround you should not determine your access to experiences and opportunities to thrive.

Through a Corporate Partnership, you are joining that legacy, while also taking advantage of a unique opportunity to connect with the Bend community, build brand awareness, and show your company’s support of the most important cause: our children. By investing in us, you can truly make a difference in our community and create great futures.

For more information about our Corporate Partnership Program, please contact Rachel Cardwell, Development Director at RCardwell@bgcbend.org.
