2024 Sponsorship Opportunities

CIDNY’s 2024 Mental Health Fundraiser Sponsorship Opportunities

Since 1978, the Center for Independence of Disabled, New York (CIDNY) has worked to ensure full integration, independence, and equal opportunity for all New Yorkers with disabilities, by removing barriers to the social, economic, cultural, and civic life of the community. CIDNY focuses on seven areas of advocacy for people with disabilities: physical health, mental health, housing, education, employment, voting, and transportation.

People with disabilities experience significant hardship when trying to navigate an able-bodied society. That’s where you come in. I’m reaching out today because we need corporate donors like you to help us advance our mission, and because we have a great opportunity for you to partner with us.

Our annual fundraiser in May, Mental Health Awareness Month, will raise awareness and funds for crucial initiatives for our consumers. It will take place on May 20, 2024, from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. at the Perelman Arts Center in the World Trade Center. The Perelman Arts Center is a new innovative theatre space crafted by a world-class team of award-winning architects and designers. Please join us for an evening of performances by Broadway artists, raffles, cocktails, light bites, vendors, and a keynote address.

We would love to have you become a sponsor of the event, within one of four sponsorship tiers. In return for your generous donation, you will receive recognition at the event based on the sponsorship tier:

  • Your company name highlighted in the program
  • Promotional opportunities with your logo, including newsletter coverage, website, print advertising, and social media promotion
  • Disability and Advocacy Literacy training for your employees
  • Consultation opportunities with Dr. Sharon McLennon Wier
  • Additional ticket entries for our raffle

For additional information and tickets, please refer here to purchase. If you have any questions, we would be happy to provide you with more information about how you can help support our work at CIDNY. Your donation will bring us one step closer to our goal of creating greater accessibility throughout New York City.

If you are interested in a sponsorship, please contact Makenzi Cooley at mcooley@cidny.org or 646-519-0339.
