Sponsorship Opportunities

Corporate  Event Sponsorship

When you join our fight by becoming an investor, you are helping RAIN continue to empower persons living with HIV and those at risk to be healthy and stigma free. Your investment can make a true and lasting impact in the lives of local teenagers, young adults and adults living with HIV.

I invite you to be a part of our success through any of our sponsorship opportunities that aligns with your needs and goals.

All sponsorships can be tailored to meet your needs and desires.

RAIN maximizes its services to individuals and the community by keeping administrative and fundraising costs to a minimum. RAIN averages between 90¢ and 94¢ of every dollar raised going back to direct services.
