Partner


The Foundation's Partnership Program offers an official opportunity for local businesses that serve our community to work seamlessly with the Foundation and its chapters. Partnerships create a win-win dynamic by elevating your business and creating awareness in our community, while generating financial resources or other benefits for Douglas County students, teachers, schools and district employees. As a Foundation partner, you will be recognized through our website, social media channels, event program collateral (when appropriate), and at special events. Partnerships are reviewed annually.

Though partnerships take many forms, these are the most common agreements:

  • Give-Back: A percentage of the sales at a restaurant, for a ticketed event or retailer will be donated back to the Foundation, a school or a chapter. We bring you new customers, you support a great cause.

  • Discount: Your business offers a discounted rate to the Foundation and its chapters, in return your offer is promoted widely.

  • Trade: Your business provides product or services to the Foundation free-of-charge in exchange for promotion within the Foundation and its chapters.
