Ready to commit?
There are two ways to do so, depending on which path best matches your mission:
1. Tax Deductible Donation
Project Protect Face Masks are obtained through a tax free charitable donation.
Coronavirus Project Protect is a project of the Tides Center tides.org. Tides supports over 140 projects with fiscal sponsorship, providing them with 501(c)(3) charitable status (and, thus, the ability to accept tax-deductible donations). The Tides Center is harnessing the power of philanthropic giving and collective action to catalyze support where it is needed most to tackle COVID-19.
Since 1976, Tides has scaled more than 1400 social ventures, fueled social change in 120+ countries, and mobilized over $3 billion for impact. The Tides Center provides us with comprehensive fiscal sponsorship and nonprofit management services that have allowed us to create the Project Protect face mask program quickly and efficiently, and with less risk. The Tides Center provides our financial systems, and nonprofit management backed by experienced team members who share our values.
2. Company Transaction (Not a tax deductible donation)
If you prefer to include your company identity, logo or branding directly on the face mask itself, you may choose this purchasing method. (Per US tax code, philanthropic contributions can not have a dual purpose in marketing or promotion of a company.)
This method of program participation allows you to have heightened visibility for your company, and brand recognition among those who receive and use your branded face mask.
Simply stated, your company logo, tagline and branded message will be laser-printed directly on the mask itself, in addition to the packaging.
