Partnering with the Arthritis Foundation

As a partner of the Arthritis Foundation, you can make a lasting impact in the lives of those living with arthritis. Below is a sampling of platforms and programs that are available.

Event Sponsor

The Arthritis Foundation brings our mission to hundreds of thousands of people each year through an array of special events, such as Walk to Cure Arthritis, Jingle Bell Run, Bone Bash and Dinners and Galas. Each of these events is important for increasing funding and awareness and ensuring viable research, public health programs and advocacy efforts.  National sponsorship opportunities are available for each of these programs, providing partners with significant visibility and opportunities for one-on-one consumer engagement and sampling.

Let’s Get a Grip on Arthritis 

With 86% of Americans saying they would switch brands to one that supports a good cause, many companies understand the value of working with trusted and established organizations like the Arthritis Foundation. Let's Get a Grip on Arthritis, our national cause campaign, lets you reach new audiences in new ways, leap-frogging your competition while moving arthritis out of the shadows to spark change. The campaign leverages paid, owned, earned and shared assets to drive value for corporate partners. 

 

LiveYES! Arthritis Network

The Arthritis Foundation’s Live Yes! Arthritis Network is transforming how people with arthritis live life with less pain and are more active in their care. This customized approach focuses on improving physical health, social and emotional health and experience of care. Simply put, the Live Yes! Arthritis Network is an organized and structured way of making connections, guiding people in a more precise, uniform fashion to the resources they need, when and where they need them. Partners of the Live Yes! Arthritis Network provide funding to expand our patient-reported outcomes dashboard, tools, resources and community programs that will make a direct impact on the lives of those with arthritis.  The network also provides an opportunity to position your company as a leader.
