Become a Corporate Partner

Together, we can end ovarian cancer.  Creating a Corporate Partnership with OCRA as the beneficiary provides an excellent opportunity to demonstrate your company’s values and commitment to supporting women and life-saving research.

We will help you design a unique campaign highlighting your company’s commitment to women’s health, and improving the lives of everyone touched by this disease. The first step is to complete and submit a proposal. All companies and brands wishing to use OCRA trademarks, logo and name, must complete and submit a proposal.

Is your company a good match for OCRA?

Meeting your business objectives is just as important to us as ensuring that we support programs and campaigns that are in line with our mission.  We invite you to View and download our Corporate Partnership Guidelines to see if your company is a good fit. We receive many offers for corporate partnerships and we would like to support every program; regrettably, we are not able to do so.

Registered Trademarks

OCRA owns certain trademarks, including the Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance name and logo. Corporate partners may use OCRA registered marks only if there is a fully executed Cause Marketing Agreement.

Donation Disclosure

Cause-related marketing programs that benefit OCRA are regulated by the Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance Standards for Charity Accountability as well as by applicable state commercial co-venture laws. Their regulations require full disclosure to the consumer regarding the benefit to the charity when donations are raised through a consumer purchase. The disclosure statement should appear on all packaging, social, digital and promotional materials in clear and unambiguous terms. Transparency is mandatory. If your program is accepted, OCRA will work with your company to suggest appropriate disclosure language.

Learn more about the BBB Standards (including Standard 19, specifically addressing cause-related marketing promotions).

Registration as a Commercial Co-Venturer

All cause-marketing programs to benefit OCRA must follow all applicable state laws. Specific requirements for commercial co-ventures vary from state to state. We cannot provide legal advice, and we encourage partners to seek their own legal counsel.
