Corporate Participation Opportunities

Bringing comfort and joy to young patients (and their families) affected by cancer or bone marrow transplants is not only our mission, it is something we do every single day. While many people have known someone affected by cancer, far fewer truly understand the implications of diagnosis, the trauma of treatment and the long-term emotional and physical side effects that our patients endure. It is critical that we, as a community, care while we wait for a cure.

In just a few short years, The Dragonfly Foundation has grown to support thousands of registered Dragonflies, including patients, parents, caregivers, and siblings or offspring). Our reach will continue to grow as we take on other partner hospitals near and far from our headquarters in Cincinnati, OH. As a 501(c)3, The Dragonfly Foundation is the perfect corporate partner for directing funding and other gifts to where they will do the most good.  Simply put, when it comes to meeting community support goals, specifically children and young adults enduring cancer or bone marrow transplants, it’s the right thing to do.
