Become a Corporate Champion

Each year, many companies join the movement to solve the cruel mystery of lupus through corporate teams, sponsorship, cause related marketing, and outright giving. The companies that are involved with the Lupus Foundation of America's North Carolina Chapter not only thousands of dollars worth of research and programs, they also successfully market themselves to their core consumer audiences.

Our Corporate Champions share our passion to solve the cruel mystery of lupus by creating meaningful opportunities for their company and employees to get involved and support our mission.  In collaboration with our corporate champions, we develop innovative methods to engage consumers and employees in fundraising and awareness campaigns to advance lupus research and provide education and support to those living with lupus and their caregivers.

Our chapter is focused on exploring cause-related marketing and sponsorship opportunities with corporations who exemplify similar core values such as commitment, passion, vision and an unwavering determination to make a difference in the lupus community.  

Sponsorship
