Corporate Giving

The Food Trust offers partnership opportunities for businesses of all sizes. Our sponsors benefit from high visibility, targeted social marketing, media promotion and employee engagement volunteer opportunities. We work hand in hand with each of our corporate partners to design a customized package to meet your marketing goals. How we partner:

Sponsor The Food Trust's Farmers Markets
The Food Trust manages a network of 20+ Philadelphia farmers markets, stimulating economic development and providing fresh food access in neighborhoods across the city. We offer sponsorship opportunities at the city’s largest and most popular farmers markets; each season, more than 400,000 customers visit our markets.

Make an EITC contribution
The Food Trust is eligible for corporate support through the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program, administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development. EITC gifts support our Young Children's Nutrition Initiative, which helps young children in grades K to 3 develop an early understanding of healthy diets and nutritious foods. EITC enables businesses to receive a generous tax credit for donations made to eligible nonprofits: a two-year commitment can earn your company tax credits equal to 90% of your contribution and a one-year commitment will earn tax credits equal to 75% of your contribution - up to a maximum of $750,000 per taxable year. Learn more about how your company can contribute to The Food Trust while saving on taxes.

Support The Food Trust through a cause marketing partnership
By aligning with The Food Trust through a cause marketing partnership, your company can demonstrate its commitment to our mission of bringing healthy food to all. We can work with you around messaging and help you determine the best contribution model for your company — whether you donate a percentage of sales or make a contribution per product sold.
