Become a Corporate Sponsor

"Children with life threatening illnesses have many homes. Teens and young adults have none. Next Step fills this vacuum by providing life changing opportunities to young people." - Paul Newman, Late Actor & Philanthropist


It is an exciting time for Next Step. In April 2014 we moved into a new space in Cambridge, MA that is bigger and closer to public transportation. We are welcoming more youth than ever into the Next Step community since we moved into our new home, Next Step Central, and we want to continue to grow.

 Our corporate sponsors are critical partners in helping us continue to expand our free year-round education and support programming for young people battling cancer, blood diseases and rare genetic disorders. Your support will empower seriously ill young people to move from "Why Me?" to "What's Next?" during their complicated transition to adulthood.

We have a number of sponsorship opportunities in 2017:

  • Become a year-round sponsor with a customized package that fits the needs of your company.
  • Sponsor "Casino Night in Boston" hosted by New England Patriots All-Pro, Devin McCourty, and his Tackle Sickle Cell campaign ( The event will raise funds and awareness for teenagers living with sickle cell disease. 
  • Sponsor our Next Step Block Party.
  • Sponsor our Boston Marathon team.
  • Sponsor our Falmouth Road Race team.

“Next Step has changed my life in an indescribable way. I’ve gained so many life skills that I wouldn’t have attained as easily, due to my physical disability. I’ve become so much more open and honest about my disease and I truly understand the reality of it. Next Step has helped me realize I can achieve anything, despite any setbacks or obstacles along the way.”
