Mercy Corps has developed two exciting new corporate partnership initiatives to help save and improve lives — the Disaster Response Corps and the Preferred Disaster Response Partners program. These programs help your company make an impact while providing specially tailored benefits to help you engage your stakeholders and be recognized for your leadership in assisting families in crisis

Disaster Response Corps

An exclusive opportunity for Mercy Corps’ corporate partners to impact the lives of those affected by global emergencies year-round.

When the worst happens — be it a natural or manmade disaster — the Disaster Response Corps allows us to always be ready to respond by supporting our year-round emergency response work. With your support, we are saving and improving lives around the world 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

What is the Disaster Response Corps?

An exclusive group of key Mercy Corps corporate partners, Disaster Response Corps members make an annual membership gift of $50,000 or more to Mercy Corps’ disaster response efforts, which allows us to plan for and respond to global emergencies without hesitation while simplifying your disaster response planning and budgeting activities.

Thanks to champions like our Disaster Response Corps members, Mercy Corps has responded to more than 50 urgent calls for help since 2000 – from Haiti to Indonesia to Darfur. In addition to supporting our agency’s role as first responders, the Disaster Response Corps supports other activities that are crucial to saving lives including disaster risk reduction efforts, which prepare and fortify communities to lessen the effects of disasters, and training for national staff to respond to emergencies.

Preferred Disaster Response Partners Program

A unique opportunity for Mercy Corps’ corporate partners to support victims of emergencies immediately when a disaster strikes.

Mercy Corps’ Preferred Disaster Response Partners program provides a turnkey solution to corporate emergency giving — helping your organization support lifesaving efforts while maximizing employee and consumer engagement.

What is the Preferred Disaster Response Partners program?

The Preferred Disaster Response Partners program is an opportunity for Mercy Corps’ corporate partners to support our life saving work while engaging your employees and/or consumers using Mercy Corps’ customized online giving tools. This opportunity is only available to companies who expect to raise $50,000 or more through employee or consumer giving.

Our team works with Preferred Disaster Response Partners to craft a customized partnership agreement outlining the activities you choose to engage in following an emergency. The non-binding agreement states that when an emergency hits and your company wants to help, you will choose Mercy Corps as your preferred partner. As your partner, Mercy Corps will not only assist survivors with food, clean water, shelter, urgent care and economic recovery, but will also support your employee and consumer communication efforts.
