Corporate America has always played an enormous role in the success of the USO.
Companies that partner with the USO find it a rich and rewarding experience, one that benefits not just the corporation and the USO but, even more important, our service members and their families. With input from our partners, we have developed different ways we can work together to strengthen our military by keeping them connected to family, home and country:
Short-term cause-related programs benefit the USO while offering companies a marketing tool to reach their target market and link them to the mission of supporting the troops.
More and more, Americans want to become involved in causes that are important to them through their workplaces.
If you have a corporate foundation seeking to reach troops and their families, you can join other generous donors and provide grant support for the USO.
Sponsorship of a Program or Event
Many of our supporters wish to direct their sponsorship to a specific USO program or event that directly meets their corporate goals.
Your company’s products or services can make a tremendous difference to our work. From airfare to furniture, computers and snacks for USO centers, to phone cards for deployed troops to call home, USO partners are providing vital in-kind support.
Through radio and television, on billboards, in kiosks or through other media, media partners can help build awareness and support from the American public—another vital means of support.
