Collaboration is at the core of everything we do. We know that no single organisation can tackle the world's biggest challenges alone - the UN SDGs will only be achieved through investment and partnership across sectors. That’s why at Mercy Corps we embrace bold and purposeful partnerships built on shared objectives and a commitment to catalyse social impact at scale in response to disaster, poverty, and the impacts of climate change.
There are many ways to partner with us - from supporting an emergency appeal to developing a programme with us, or joining our employee engagement programme and making us your chosen charity. We will work with you to create a partnership with the right elements for your company, trust, or foundation, bringing together our respective expertise, ideas, and resources in support of creating a better world.
