Challenge: how does three-year-old Love INC scale from its current 15 member churches to a mature affiliate with 50+ churches? Transform itself from “here”; currently scraping by financially, to “there”; scaling to a fully mature, financially sound flourishing affiliate. More importantly, “getting there” in a healthy, strategic manner.
Our ability to scale Love INC to maturity is largely dependent on generous multi-year reserve funding from individual donors and corporate sponsorships.
Solution: Multi-year reserves from Love INC Corporate Sponsors’ Society, in tandem with our Love INC Sustainers’ Society (Individual donors)
“Through their annual gifts, Love INC’s Corporate Sponsors’ Society members demonstrate their commitment to the mission fulfillment of Love INC of Metro Tampa Inc. Year in and out, our members help fill the financial gap that exists for infrastructure and unfunded /underfunded programs and services.”

Why partner as a Love INC Corporate Sponsor?
Love INC’s high-impact outcomes help Tampa flourish. Love INC, opened in April 2017 as a part of Love INC National, www.loveinc.org, an organization with 134 affiliates and a 44-year history of providing a Christ-centered model to alleviate poverty that has impacted millions of lives.
Does A Love Inc Corporate Sponsorship Align With Core Values Of Your Organization?
Love INC does not distribute emergency funds, is not set up to handle emergencies or the chronically homeless, and does not have walk-ins. Love INC’s member churches and hundreds of donors generously support Love because of its unique core values, defining differences and outcomes from other ministries:
- Serving beyond the Band-Aids – food and clothing commands of Matthew 25
- Verifying that each request for assistance is legitimate to prevent dependency
- Investing relationally with those we serve
- Reducing duplication of local services
- Lessening the strain on any one church to do it all
- Demonstrating unity in the Body of Christ
ROI (Return on Investment) – Love INC’s guests transform from chaos to shalom; lives lived as God intended.
Update: Shalandra is a Portico Café employee and a 2019 referral to Love INC from member church, The Portico, the downtown mission of member church Hyde Park United Methodist Church. http://theportico.org/cafe/
To reunify with her two children requires employment (she works two jobs!), safe housing and reliable transportation.
Love INC member churches pooled resources, ($3,200 – transmission etc.) with Shalandra’s required sacrificial contribution to transform a St. Andrews Episcopal member’s van donation into safe reliable transportation.
