Ways to Partner
There is no “one-size-fits-all” approach ‐ we will work together with you to create a program and partnership that fits your company’s unique culture, while making an impact.
View our list of seasonal opportunities below!
Donate through your business or encourage your team toward social good through employee giving. You can support specific programs or projects that align with your corporate culture or simply give where it is needed most.
Sponsor meals or a UGM event and help provide vital services to the community, while elevating the profile of your business. Inspire your employees, vendors or customers to be creative and give back by hosting your own fundraiser for UGM. Our online tools and resource kit will help translate your ideas into reality.
Basic necessities and hygiene items are a daily need in our community. Contact us to learn about our current needs. Samples, excess inventory, or out-of-season inventory, are all items we may be able to use to help those in need. Gift of goods may qualify for a charitable tax receipt.
Awareness & Education
We want to share with you how your support is making a difference for those struggling with homelessness. We would love to customize a virtual workshop or take you on a tour of UGM by video at your virtual staff meeting or lunch and learn. We also offer Executive Leadership Days designed specifically for business leaders to experience the front line of working in the Downtown Eastside.

UGM is deeply grateful for the generosity and compassion of our corporate partners. The following organizations have supported UGM at a significant level in the past year.
Lending a Hand
On July 15th, Union Gospel Mission and
Concert Properties joined forces and put on an
unforgettable celebration for the community:
UGM’s annual Summer BBQ!
Individuals, families, volunteers, and UGM staff
basked in the sun together, connecting over
conversation, and sharing a hearty meal.
The air was filled with fun, joy, and the smell of
sizzling smokies and burgers. A big thanks to all
the volunteers and kitchen staff who grilled up
3,000 smokies and burgers!
"We are pleased to support UGM's Annual Summer BBQ as lead sponsor again this year. Giving back to the communities where we work is one of our founding principles and over the years it has become even more important as the need increases. We are fortunate to have employees who live our values and are eager to donate their time to this meaningful event." David Podmore, OBC, Concert Properties Chair, President & CEO
