Ways To Support

At JustLeadershipUSA, we know that the people closest to the problem are also closest to the solution, but often farthest away from resources and power. That’s why we are on a mission to educate, elevate and empower the people and communities most impacted by systemic injustice to drive meaningful and lasting policy reform. But we can’t do it alone.

JLUSA relies on philanthropic support to fuel our leadership development and advocacy training programs, and support the urgent campaigns JLUSA Leaders spearhead throughout the country. Donors and community supporters are crucial to propelling our mission forward. Donate today, and see below to learn more about all the ways to give and get involved.

Corporate Partnerships

JLUSA understands that where your company invests its time, resources, and energy is a big decision.  So when it comes to corporate philanthropy, we know that one size doesn’t fit all. We are passionate about building customized and meaningful partnership opportunities that achieve your business goals while making a crucial impact. Through a comprehensive partnership with JLUSA, your brand has an opportunity to take an active and prominent role in elevating the voices of criminal justice advocates throughout the country.

Partnership options include:

Employee Engagement

Successful corporate philanthropy leverages the passions and interests of the company’s workforce. Through employee giving campaigns, volunteerism, and event participation, corporations can turn a JLUSA partnership into a cultural institution of your workplace.

Cause Marketing

Cause marketing partnerships, including fundraising via point-of-sale, vendor/business-to-business partnerships, and integrated marketing campaigns, can help enhance customer loyalty, drive sales, and send a strong message that your company is dedicated to social, criminal, and racial justice.

Event Sponsorship

JLUSA’s community events provide opportunities to engage with employees, business partners and clients, while networking with like-minded socially responsible corporate leaders. Through a customized event marketing and engagement plan, your company will prominently align with JLUSA’s mission to elevate criminal justice reforms led by directly-impacted leaders.

Corporate Giving

Within JLUSA’s wide range of leadership programs, direct action campaigns, and advocacy trainings, companies can find funding opportunities that best align with your community engagement and giving priorities.

Foundation Giving

JustLeadershipUSA’s Development Team actively seeks private foundations to partner with our leadership to advance our mission. We serve as a liaison between grantmaking foundations and JLUSA. The philanthropic support provided by private foundations is essential to ensuring that JLUSA can continue its leadership development and advocacy training programs and equip directly-impacted individuals with the tools to affect change in their communities and nationwide.
