Bread for the City believes that collaboration is how change happens. We are a compassionate, forward-thinking, data-driven, and growing nonprofit with deep roots (45+ years) serving Washington, DC residents living on low-income. Our Corporate Partnerships Program is a unique opportunity to work with us and our community towards a better DC: a city where everyone has their basic needs met, and neighborhoods have real power to build prosperity and enact change. Our corporate partners are committed to working in DC; envisioning a better world; and building a sustainable partnership with a community-based organization.

To join us as a Corporate Partner today and to learn more about this unique program, contact Christina Puppi, Corporate Partnerships Manager, using the form below:
Your team will be eligible for priority volunteering opportunities for our regularly scheduled group volunteer shifts, as well as access to exclusive volunteer day events (like MLK Day and September 11th’s National Day of Service & Remembrance).
Corporate Partners are invited to gather for community discussions with our leadership team who are subject matter experts on DC: the history of the city; the landscape of affordable housing gentrification and racial equity; and how food insecurity impacts our residents. Learn about the issues facing our community from your office or home by participating in brown-bag lunches on topics that impact all of us.
Drives deliver incredible support, helping us expand our outreach and maximize impact. Host a fundraising drive for our annual Holiday Helpings program or to support our pandemic response efforts; bring the team together for a “baby shower” in-kind drive for our “breadcrumbs”; or organize a food drive to provide direct access to vital, nutritious groceries provided to thousands of clients and their families every year.
A night filled with dancing, giving, and community. Our annual gala brings 500+ of our supporters together to raise funding and celebrate Bread for the City’s mission. Corporate Partners receive tickets to the celebration and recognition opportunities.
The Bread for the City family wants to meet you! We’ll make sure that you get to see where your dollars are going when you visit and tour our centers, join our special events, toast accomplishments with our staff, or participate in an on-site drive event where you can get to work volunteering with our program teams.
Special events like our gala, Holiday Helpings, ribbon cutting ceremonies, campaign toasts, and more are great ways to meet other Corporate Partners, discuss and collaborate on initiatives for progress, and make new friends.
As part of our mission to create a partnership that delivers community impact and helps tell your corporate story, together we can design a media plan highlighting your great work, partnership accomplishments, and recognition for event sponsorship.
