Our partnerships are good for our students and good for business.
Providing companies with positive ways to impact Los Angeles and highlight their philanthropy.
LA’s BEST offers many opportunities for companies to become our partners — to genuinely implement their Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives, engage employees and “give back.” We invite companies — big and small — to support LA’s BEST in ways that are aligned with their mission and our shared goals. From sponsoring the Family Health Festival or Celebrate Science Fair, to funding a CoderTime Club. From launching an employee engagement program to collaborating on a social-media campaign. There are lots of ways to highlight a company’s generosity of time, spirit and resources.
We invite you to choose one or more opportunities from the options below, and we welcome additional ideas and collaborations.
Volunteer at an LA’s BEST School Site
A one-time, monthly or quarterly experience for a group of employees. Employees can simply show up or bring a fun activity inspired by your brand to share with the kids.
Fund a Field Trip
Fund a field trip for 20 or more kids to a museum, sporting game, historical site and/or to a company’s office to learn about professions in LA and new skills directly from employees.
Participate in a Community-wide Event
Community-wide events bring together LA’s BEST families to provide them with access to services and to highlight their children’s accomplishments throughout the year. We also invite community leaders, elected officials and celebrities to attend. Tailored sponsor opportunities are available for each community-wide event as well as opportunities to volunteer.
Sponsor an Event
LA’s BEST Boards and dedicated supporters spearhead annual fundraising events with customized sponsor opportunities available.
Support Enriching Programs
Support a program that inspires students and provides them with opportunities to: learn to use digital media tools; learn about conflict resolution through team challenges; create their own masterpieces through visual art, music, dance, and drama workshops; learn about proper nutrition; participate in STEM-related activities and build things like robots. If you have an existing program you would like to implement, you can learn more about our Programmatic Partnerships.
Co-Brand a Product or Campaign
Partnerships can highlight your company’s philanthropy, drive traffic to your business and increase sales. Build on the TOMS® One For One. Put the LA’s BEST logo on your packaging stating that proceeds from the product will support LA’s BEST. Or, co-brand a social-media campaign.
