The Women’s Foundation works with corporates as strategic partners and sponsors on a wide range of programmes, research and other initiatives. Opportunities for corporate involvement range from being a lead sponsor of a specific community programme, to hosting a group of under-privileged teens for a company visit and careers talk, to providing TWF with venue and other in-kind support. Corporate financial sponsorship for TWF’s community programmes typically starts at HK$50,000. We are always delighted to discuss employee volunteering opportunities as part of what we offer corporate partners in return for their financial and in-kind support.
With the generous support of Goldman Sachs and GS Gives, TWF has published a series of substantive research reports on women and girls in Hong Kong.
Corporate Partnership Examples
Our current and past key programme sponsors include Barclays, CLSA and JP Morgan. Barclays has been the lead sponsor of our Financial Literacy and Employability Programmes for Marginalised Women for several years and is also supporting our Life Skills Programme for Adolescent Girls and Boys. JP Morgan was the anchor sponsor for the three year pilot of our Life Skills Programme. Meanwhile, CLSA has sponsored our TEEN Programme for at risk teen girls and boys for over five years. Besides financial support, employees from Barclays, JP Morgan and CLSA have served on our programme steering committees assisting with strategic planning, content development, the selection of trainers and NGO partners, and other key aspects of the programmes.
We have enjoyed a three year strategic partnership with Bloomberg who are the lead sponsor for our Leading Women Speaker Series examining the opportunities and challenges facing women in male-dominated industries.
And we are extremely grateful to the 30+ leading companies who support our Mentoring Programme for Women Leaders and provide the Programme with funding support as well as venues for our busy calendar of events..
Corporate Matched Funding
If your organisation offers matched funding for employee donations, we would love to discuss with you how TWF can be included in the list of eligible charities. TWF is fortunate to be recognised as an eligible charity for matched funding by leading corporates including BP, Capital Group, Cisco and Macquarie.
