Corporate Sponsorship & Community-Supported Events

Community partners and corporate donors are some of the most integral parts of our fundraising efforts at Hospice Buffalo. Business owners and executives understand the value of supporting patients and family members during one of life’s most difficult times. The recognition we offer can increase your company’s exposure in the local market and reinforce your reputation for philanthropy in the community.

The Spring Bouquet Sale

The Hospice Spring Bouquet SaleTM marks the beginning of spring in Western New York each year. More than 450 businesses, schools and organizations participate in this popular fundraising drive through corporate pre-sale. Bouquets are $8 each and a magnificent tribute bouquet is available for $30. To participate in the pre-sale, simply assign a Bouquet Sale coordinator at your office to promote the sale and submit all bouquet orders and money to Hospice. It’s an easy and fun way to support Hospice Buffalo that doesn’t cost your company corporate or marketing dollars.

The Hospice Memorial Walk

The Hospice Memorial Walk offers friends and family of our patients a meaningful and easy way to raise money for Hospice Buffalo while paying special tribute to those who are no longer with us. Corporate sponsorships are available for $150 - $3,000. Companies can also organize a team of walkers, including employees and their friends and family, to participate in the Walk.

Summer Affair

Celebrate all Buffalo has to offer this summer with an evening out with friends, co-workers and family. Join us in summer revelry including cocktails, dinner, theme package auction, raffles and live music. Corporate sponsorship packages are available for $500 - $5,000. More than 500 guests enjoy this spectacular party on the waterfront — so don’t miss out on one of the hottest nights of the summer in Buffalo!

Light-A-Life Memorial Tree

Beautiful porcelain bells inscribed with the names of loved ones who have passed away before us can be purchased for $55.
