Corporate Support

Pine Street Inn’s efforts to end homelessness are enhanced by our partnerships with the corporate community. Providing everything from financial contributions and business expertise to in-kind donations and volunteer service, corporations have helped Pine Street expand our services to homeless men and women throughout Greater Boston.
 
Pine Street will work with you to match philanthropic and service goals with the needs of our programs. 
 
Here are some ways corporations or foundations can help end homelessness or view our current partnerships:
 
 
 

Sponsorships

Pine Street holds a number of fundraisers and special events throughout the year that rely on corporate sponsorship and support to advance our mission. Benefits include promotion of your business in print materials, electronic communications and social media. 
 

HOME REMEDY: A BREAKFAST TO BENEFIT PINE STREET INN

Home Remedy brings together 600 of Boston’s corporate executives, community and philanthropic leaders who are committed to Pine Street's mission to end homelessness. The next Home Remedy Breakfast is scheduled for Wednesday, April 26, 2017.
 

INNBASSADORS FOR PINE STREET INN 

The Innbassadors organize fundraising and networking events and volunteer activities to improve the quality of life of homeless and formerly homeless individuals by engaging Boston’s emerging leaders. Become a corporate partner or sponsor an Innbassadors event and share your company’s commitment to the community with a receptive young audience.

 

PINE STREET INN GRADUATION

Our annual Pine Street Inn Graduation celebrates the accomplishments of the men and women who have completed a job training program, found employment, or moved from homelessness to housing during the past year.
 
For more information on event sponsorships, please contact Heidi Daniels, VP of Development & External Affairs, at 617.892.9180 or heidi.daniels@pinestreetinn.org
 

meal sponsorship

Meal sponsorship not only ensures vital nutrition, but also provides an opportunity to engage with the community through service opportunities, along with banners, signage and social media promotion.
 

Chop-A-Thon

A Chop-A-Thon is a great way to support the mission to end homelessness and offer a service opportunity for a large group.
 
 

Cause Marketing

Pine Street is ready to partner with organizations and businesses on a successful and mutually beneficial cause-related marketing campaign. Our staff is ready to collaborate with both local and national partners on creative marketing vehicles that drive business and enhance positive brand associations. 
 

NINETY-NINE RESTAURANTS

The Ninety-Nine Restaurants holds its annual Have a Heart raffle for Red Sox Green Monster seats at 50 restaurant locations in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. The raffle, aided by Pine Street social media and email communications, raised close to $160,000 for the Inn in 2014.  
 

SODEXO

Sodexo’s OXEDOS Street Grub Food Truck serves a “street food” concepts prepared using fresh, local ingredients at its Campus Dining locations – and it also supports Pine Street! Since its launch in 2012, Sodexo has donated a percentage of sales from the truck to support our programs and services.  

 
 

Organize An Event

Hosting an event to benefit Pine Street is a great way to help end homelessness in Boston. Each event directly benefits programs and services that are helping people in our community on their journey out of homelessness.
 
For more information on cause marketing and events, please contact:
Jessica Mattioli, Manager of Business Development & Events
 
 

Workplace Giving

A workplace giving program offers employees the ability to make regular donations to eligible charities through payroll deductions.
 
These programs provide funding we can count on to help men and women in need in our community. For example, if 150 people from your organization each gave $2 a week for a year, you would generate enough money to operate our Street Outreach vans for a month. 
 
Benefits: 
  • Receive recognition in our annual report if your company raises $1,000 or more
  • Promote your organization's commitment to giving back
  • Employees make convenient, automatic gifts through payroll deduction or by check or credit card
  • Offer lifesaving support to people in need in your community
 

OTHER WAYS TO SUPPORT WORKPLACE GIVING:

 
Matching Gift Programs
Many companies will match charitable gifts made by their employees to qualifying organizations. Find out if your company participates by clicking here.
 
United Way
The United Way allows employees to direct their gifts to hundreds of worthwhile charities, including Pine Street Inn. Write in your designation directly to Pine Street Inn.
