Become a corporate partner
Elevate your brand and invest in women’s education
The support of corporate partners enables us to award more grants, keep our educational resources current and continue changing lives through education.
We offer custom sponsorship opportunities that put brands and organizations in front of a national audience who believes in the power of women and education.
Each year, our Scholar Grants provide the financial leverage that enables women to return to college or make it across the graduation podium. Companies interested in sponsoring our grant program, have the opportunity to name a Scholar Grant.
The STAR Party is our annual fundraiser, JRF community celebration and opportunity to give public thanks to our incredible corporate partners. Companies interested in sponsoring the STAR Party will take part in our most broadcasted event of the year.
Our mission is to provide unrestricted Scholar Grants to students who identify as women or nonbinary, are 35 and older and demonstrate financial need. Companies also have the opportunity to provide broad support of our general operations.
Hear from our partners
Synchrony supported 20 JRF Scholars for two years through the Education as an Equalizer Initiative via the Synchrony Women’s Network. Additionally, Synchrony provided support for both the JRF Emergency Fund and overhead for two years. Education as an Equalizer build on Synchrony’s commitment to address deeply-rooted economic inequality within our communities through investment, engagement and social reform, in collaboration with academic institutions, nonprofits, government and business.
“I know from my own experiences that arming someone with education gives them optionality in the future to take control of their lives. There is nothing I believe in more. And despite what we as women are often told, it isn’t and never has been selfish to take care of yourself and to invest in your future. In June 2020, we established a fund to support women with the tools to empower themselves. We believe that as a community, women empower everyone around them, promoting collaboration, fairness and equality. Our mission for the fund is to give these tools and that choice to the next generation so that they might take on leadership *and the world) on their own terms.”
“We are proud to support the Jeannette Rankin Foundation and its efforts to empower women to transform their futures through education. Attending college later in life comes with many hurdles, and we commend the JRF Scholars who are working hard to achieve their degrees and create a better future for themselves, their families and their communities.”
“The Assurant Foundation has supported Jeanette Rankin Foundation (JRF) for the last five years because its STAR Party program provides critical funds to help JRF Scholars thrive in a connected world. In addition to monetary contributions, we provide resources for STAR Party activities, and Assurant employees volunteer to read applications for the scholar selection process, which gives them a fulfilling way to engage. We’re proud to continue to support JRF.”
