Corporate Giving

Corporate support comes to Step Up through sponsorships of the ART HEALS GALLERY; company sponsored employee payroll deduction programs; and corporate underwriting of Step Up holiday meals and more. Many Westside businesses are already affiliated with and/or supporting Step Up. Development staff is continually identifying corporations with shared area(s) of charitable interest, their fiscal year/annual budgeting process, and their personnel making the charitable giving decisions.
