Companies & Organizations

When companies use their time, talent and resources to make an impact on society, we can help solve the difficult, yet critical challenges facing our community today – like training the next generation of leaders.

You have an opportunity to make an impact that will last a lifetime. Set an example for your employees by showing corporate commitment to improving our community, while enjoying brand visibility to thousands of families.

Join us in this mission to empower the future. We depend on businesses and organizations — just like yours! — to make our programs possible. Curriculum development and revisions, recruitment of volunteers, special events, scholarships and other student-focused initiatives are just some of the areas that will improve immensely with your generosity.

So what can you do to help? Junior Achievement has several corporate partnership opportunities to chose from:

Volunteer

Through volunteer partnerships from organizations large and small, JA volunteers inspire, prepare and empower. They band together to teach the importance of workforce readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy. By representing your company and industry to students, JA volunteers help students discover the dignity of work through the power of example.

Donate

Your investment in Junior Achievement makes a difference! Junior Achievement relies on individual, corporate and foundation gifts to advance its mission and programs. We do not receive any state or federal grants. Demand for our programs continues to grow each year and there is a growing list of schools interested in our programs.

Corporate Sponsorship Opportunities

  • JA BizTown business with your brand
  • JA Finance Park kiosk with your brand
  • Invest as a Day Sponsor at JA BizTown or JA Finance Park
  • Sponsor an entire school of students

Event Sponsorship and Participation

With several signature events throughout the year, including a Golf Classic, the JA Stock Market Challenge and JA Bowl-a-Thon events, you have multiple opportunities to support JA – and have fun doing it!

Supporting JA is one business decision you’ll never regret. Whether your company signs on to provide classroom volunteers or to sponsor an event, you’re making a solid investment in the next generation of Oregon and SW Washington workers. Our generous supporters are vital in allowing us to inspire the next generation of business leaders at no cost to students or schools.
