Sponsor Opportunities

Proud Sponsors

Proud Sponsors represent the premier-level philanthropic commitment to the overall mission of the Arthritis Foundation. The “Proud Sponsor of the Arthritis Foundation” logo and acknowledgment statement can be used in advertising, promotional and point-of-purchase materials.

 

Special Events

Throughout the year, hundreds of thousands of people attend Arthritis Foundation events around the nation. Special events like the Walk to Cure Arthritis, Jingle Bell Run/Walk and the Bone Bash gala provide both community-based opportunities and a national platform for corporate partners to demonstrate their commitment to the fight against arthritis.

 

Ease-of-Use Commendation Program

The Arthritis Foundation's Ease-of-Use Commendation is an innovative program that recognizes products proven to make life easier for people who have arthritis and other physical limitations. All products in the program are independently tested by experts at the Georgia Tech Research Institute and evaluated by people with arthritis. Ease-of-Use products stand out in the marketplace because they are tested and proven easy to use.

Portion of Purchase and Cause Marketing Sponsors

With 86% of Americans saying they would switch brands to one that supported a good cause, many companies understand the value of working with trusted and established organizations like the Arthritis Foundation. Donating a percentage of sales or implementing retail-based promotions can demonstrate corporate citizenship, while providing consumers a way to help support the fight against a disease that affects 50 million Americans and their families.
