Corporate Giving & Sponsorships

Why become a corporate sponsor?

Funding from corporate sponsors allows Rain of Hope to expand youth programs to more communities. 

The importance of after school programs is indisputable. From a report created by both the Department of Education and Justice, “Communities fare better when their young people are occupied in meaningful, supervised activities after school.“ 


  • After school programs engage children while parents are at work, and juvenile crimes are at their peak.


  • Children in programs after school have increased school attendance and improved behavior.


  • When afterschool programs integrate character education and teach social skills, children are more willing to listen, respect and support each other, and are ready to learn.


Unfortunately, youth programs, while important, are inaccessible to many. Rain of Hope aims to provide empowering programs to all, including those less likely to afford quality programming.  

Rain of Hope can provide more programs to youth with support from individuals and businesses.  This support will help us train schools nationwide to offer our quality youth programs that create caring communities.

Corporations invest in several meaningful ways:
