Feeding America is a non-profit organization which works closely with the private sector, and has a mission to feed America’s hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engaging the US public, private, and government agencies. It is the largest domestic hunger-relief organization in the US.
Feeding America is a good example of a non-profit which actively seeks private sector partnerships, offers them a variety of opportunities to partner with the project, and publicizes their involvement clearly in all of their publications.
On its website, the Partners page lists major US corporations which provide a variety of support mechanisms from direct funding to in-kind contributions. There are a variety of partner levels of involvement. For example, the Mission partners make aggregate contributions or commitments of $500,000 or more, donations of 5 million pounds or more of food and grocery products, or combined gifts of $250,000 or more and 2.5 million pounds or more of food and grocery products. The Guiding Partners make aggregate contributions or commitments of $250,000 or more, donations of 2.5 million pounds or more of food and grocery products, or combined gifts of $150,000 or more and 1.5 million pounds or more of food and grocery products.
