Partnership Opportunities

Over the past number of years there has been a change occurring in the non-profit and for-profit relationship. For-profit enterprises have begun to expect, and rightly so, that they need to receive value for their investments. The value that they receive does not have to be financial, but it does have to be a solid return on their social investment.

As a result, both types of organizations are seeking long-term, multi-faceted, value-driven partnerships.

With this in mind, Special Olympics Edmonton is seeking partnerships that maximize the following:

  • Meet the business objectives of each partner
