The ADS Difference Mission Give Back Foundation CSR Support Request Form
ADS is committed to supporting our nation’s military, veteran and first-responder communities. We take our relationship and commitment to them and their families very seriously. That being said, we want to ensure the non-profit organizations we choose to work with share our passion and dedication to these extraordinary individuals. While we would like to fulfill all requests for partnership, we receive more appeals than we are able to satisfy.
In order to provide the most “good,” ADS prefers to cultivate partnerships with organizations that have goals that reinforce and are aligned with our mission to provide support to these communities both in theater and at home, rather than sponsor individual events . Ideally, these synergetic partnerships help us stay focused on our mission and help us generate greater impact.
If your organization is interested in becoming an ADS non-profit partner, you may apply via our online application process. Due to the large number of proposals we receive, only proposals submitted through the online application process will be considered. Donation or partnership requests submitted by mail, phone or e-mail will be directed to the online application.
Organizations wishing to be considered for partnership must meet the following criteria:
- Only IRS-registered 501c designated organizations in the U.S. are eligible to apply.
- At a minimum, organizations must have been in existence for three years.
- If initially approved for partnership, your organization must submit Form 990 for prior tax year.
- Organizations should have a focus on military, veterans and first responder community support*
To maintain focus on our mission and achieve the most impact, ADS does not provide support for:
- Individuals (scholarships, stipends, fellowships, personal assistance)
- For-profit ventures
- Religious groups for religious purposes
- Any support that does not meet the IRS’s definition of a charitable purpose
Currently, ADS is partnered with a number of non-profit organizations. The opportunity for us to take on new partnerships is limited. While requests may meet all our guidelines and criteria, acceptance should not automatically be assumed. All applications for the upcoming year are reviewed in the 4th quarter of every fiscal year. Accepted applicants will be contacted no later than December 31st.
*ADS will accept a limited number of sponsorship requests that benefit the general community and are not specifically focused on the military, veteran and first-responder communities. Applicants must fulfill the same criteria listed above. We reserve the right to choose the organizations and events that we feel best support our corporate social responsibility objectives.
We actively seek out customers’ equipment and logistics challenges and deliver innovative and cost-effective solutions.
Serving those who serve, because every hero deserves to come home.
