Making Independence Possible
SARAH Partners Program

SARAH Family of Agencies
Founded in 1957, the SARAH family of agencies serves hundreds of local individuals living with intellectual and other disabilities. Our programs and services include residential housing and support, day programs and recreational activities, employment and transitional services, respite care and birth-to-three early intervention services. SARAH's primary goal is to help individuals live fulfilling, productive and engaged lives within the community.

Program Overview
The SARAH Partners Program is designed to develop fully integrated, mutually-beneficial partnerships with local businesses and regional companies. Our goal is to build robust and long-term relationships in support of SARAH's mission and each company's specific goals and objectives. By working directly with local business leaders, SARAH Foundation staff will tailor a partnership model that includes multiple points of entry and mission focused interactions.

Partnership Model
Every partnership with SARAH is unique and there are a broad range of initiatives and opportunities to collectively form a strong partnership. Key partnership components are categorized below.

  • Mission Alignment
    We seek partnerships with socially responsible, inclusive businesses with similar values.
  • Executive Participation
    Partnerships include the possibility for executives to participate in leadership roles, including board membership, event committees and other meaningful opportunities.
  • Financial Impact
    Philanthropic contributions are critical to SARAH's long-term sustainability and the partners program offers numerous ways for companies to contribute to our mission, including annual gifts, event sponsorships, grants and campaign leadership.
  • Employee Engagement
    Unique and compelling volunteer opportunities – ranging from annual events to "adopt-a-house" initiatives to donation drives – provide dynamic experiences to directly engage employees in the mission of serving others.
  • Brand and Community Awareness
    Co-branding initiatives can generate significant revenue and awareness for SARAH's mission and programs while providing a company or business the opportunity to connect with its customers and clients in meaningful ways in-person, digitally and through creative product and service engagement.
