Partner With Us

As non-profit provider of tax and financial services for low-income families in Central Illinois, METEC has a reputation as a trusted service organization and a strong partner in the communities we serve. Partners make it possible for us to provide information, networking opportunities, training, and resources to offer free tax preparation services.

Partners provide:

  • Program related support- computers, office supplies etc.
  • Host a site, or Self prepared Tax Kiosk
  • Provide volunteers
  • Offer financial sponsorship

As tax site hosts, our partners increase their role in helping generate local economic impact. “For every $1 of Earned Income Tax Credit refund that comes into the local economy, it creates $1.60 in additional economic activity” (Center for Economic Progress Research). Tax site partners also provide marketing and outreach assistance, playing a key role in recruiting volunteers and informing low-income families of our services.

We offer numerous ways for our sponsors to become involved in helping families achieve financial security. For many who visit our tax site, the service of tax preparation provides an opportunity to enter the financial mainstream. We offer full opportunity for recognition and participation to partners and sponsors who help further our mission.

Opportunities include:

  • Exposure to and interaction with new clients
  • On-site signage and product sampling opportunities
  • Inclusion in targeted advertising – PSA’s, social network, radio etc.
  • Employee engagement and skill building through volunteerism
  • Additional tax and financial services to employees and customers

Top reasons why corporations sponsor us:

  • Demonstrate commitment to local communities
  • Target a niche market
  • Heighten brand or product visibility
