Our Partners

We could not accomplish our mission and provide families with the resources and tools they need without the generous support of our partners. The Partnership for Drug-Free Kids aims to engage the private sector as a critical stakeholder in social change. Our corporate program recognizes and provides companies with ways to achieve their business and social responsibility goals through substantive partnerships, leadership, networking, employee engagement and event sponsorship opportunities.

On behalf of the families we serve, thank you to all of our supporters. See a list of all our generous 2019 partners below.

Want to get involved? Take action today by joining our Trailblazers for Hope Corporate Citizens Challenge (PDF) to raise $1.5M this year so we can serve an additional 30,000 families in need. We lose 174 individuals a day to overdose, with 115 of those the result of opioids alone. Increasingly, families and communities ravaged by the opioid epidemic are turning to the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids for help. The severity of the opioid epidemic means that our resources are increasingly strained. We need support from corporate leaders to meet the demand of families seeking help, desperate to prevent their children from becoming the next statistic.

For more information about this challenge or about becoming a partner, please contact Kaila Sassano, Vice President of Resource Development at 212-973-3555 or Kaila_sassano@drugfree.org.

Partner Spotlight: IGA


Corporate citizens like IGA are making a huge difference for the families we serve. We are so grateful that IGA’s corporate responsibility arm, IGA Cares, will provide the opportunity for stores across the nation to join forces with us to provide answers and resources to help families struggling with substance use.

Through in-store fundraising activities, opportunity to donate at the register and the sale of specially marked IGA Exclusive Brand products, IGA will raise critical funds and awareness of the nation’s opioid epidemic to help us ensure families can get the support they need at IGA Better Choices.
