Corporate Sponsorship Guidelines

Working with corporate partners helps the European Disability Forum (EDF) reach new and diverse audiences, while raising funds to support our work in Europe. In May 2018, the EDF Annual General Assembly adopted corporate sponsorship guidelines with the objective of enabling the creation of mutually beneficial partnerships between the EDF and the corporate sector. The Guidelines are set out in order to enable the EDF to access financial support from the private sector while ensuring that EDF that partnerships do not conflict with EDFs values.
