Sponsor a Matthew 25 Program

Matthew 25 values the support of the community partners who sponsor our various programs. Funding from our sponsors directly impacts the lives of people right here in eastern Iowa and helps to engage community members in our mission. If you’re interested making a difference in our community through a sponsorship of any of the following programs, contact us or call 319-200-2783.

Transform Week

Invest in Cedar Rapids neighborhoods by sponsoring our annual Transform Week. This program matches homeowners with community volunteers who can help complete home repair or landscaping projects that make both homes and neighborhoods safer, healthier, and more uplifted. Sponsorships are vital to this program, providing funding for the materials, tools, and other supplies necessary to complete each project. Check out the great marketing benefits, sponsorship levels, and other information about this opportunity in our info sheet.

Groundswell Cafe

Provide healthy meals for people in need with a Lunch for Linn sponsorship of Groundswell Cafe. Groundswell is a pay-it-forward eatery, where anyone can get a delicious healthy meal, regardless of their ability to pay. With this $1,500 sponsorship, your organization can provide a week’s worth of pay-it-forward meals for people who are struggling. To recognize your generosity, we would feature your logo on signage in the Cafe, a Facebook post, a Cafe email, and on our website. If you’re interested, some sponsors enjoy getting their staff involved by volunteering during their sponsorship week or bringing a group to the Cafe for breakfast or lunch.

Farmers Markets

Support local food and community building by being the sole Presenting Sponsor for one month of our weekly Farmers Markets, including that month’s larger Mega Market. Held from 4-7 pm on Thursdays in June-September, our Farmers Markets feature fresh produce grown on our Cultivate Hope Urban Farm, which is available at affordable prices for all and half-price for those who are income qualified. Mega Markets are a larger version of the weekly Farmers Markets and feature live music, activities, fresh brick oven pizza and more. For $2,500, your organization can be the sole Presenting Sponsor of one month of Farmers Markets and that month’s Mega Market. You’ll receive a variety of marketing benefits, including your logo on signage, our website, market emails, a Facebook post and the Facebook event description. You’ll also have the opportunity to have a table and giveaway items at the Mega Market.
