Corporate Sponsorships

"We were especially drawn to helping AIDS

Community Resources because all of the money raised stays locally.  Those are the kinds of charities Empower Federal Credit Union likes to support."  John Wakefield, Empower Federal Credit Union 

Imagine a marketing opportunity guaranteed to introduce thousands of area residents to your business all while publicizing your support of a good cause. Sponsorship of AIDS Community Resources' special events guarantees just that and more!

ACR has numerous fundraising and educational events in nine New York counties: Cayuga, Herkimer, Jefferson, Lewis, Madison, Oneida, Onondaga, Oswego, and St. Lawrence.

AIDS Walk/Runs 

  •  Syracuse/Central New York
  •  Utica/The Mohawk Valley
  •  Watertown/Northern New York 

These three AIDS Walk/Runs were bigger and better in 2006.  Combined, they raised $255,000 – a 16% increase over 2006!  Proceeds are spent on youth HIV prevention programs, and to help AIDS Community Resources’ clients in the Central, Northern, and Mohawk Valley regions of New York.

AIDS Community Resources welcomes the opportunity to tailor a sponsorship package to meet your specific corporate or community marketing needs.  We also have a Corporate Packet ready to present to you with different Sponsor opportunities.

ACR Public Relations Director Jean Kessner is sponsored bicyclist Don Hughes in the 2007 AIDS Ride.

Online giving is especially important for bicycle riders in the Empire State AIDS Ride.  They have to raise $3500 in order to participate.  In 2007, 17 riders signed on to benefit AIDS Community Resources.
