Massage Donation Request Form
A Note About Massage Donations: On any given business day, the Kneaded Energy Companies receive an average of 2-5 calls everyday, requesting we provide massage therapy service, at no charge.
The requests we receive for massage services, for the most part, support very worthy causes like; raffles for charity events or non profit organizations, fundraisers to fight against cancer and other diseases, care for the caregivers, employee appreciation days and community events.
Kneaded Energy is committed to giving massage to the community. We currently provide over 500 hours and thousands of massages, each year, for the Greensboro community on a volunteer basis. We feel it is our responsibility to share our gifts and talents with the community.
The federal government requires that we pay our employees, our professionally trained and licensed massage therapists for any massage work they perform. This includes company sponsored volunteer services. It is against the law for us to ask our employees to donate their time or volunteer their time or build our clientele at their expense. Likewise the students of our school have to be supervised by an instructor for any massage work they perform and that supervisor has to be paid for their time. Any events we choose for our students have to have an educational component to the event so we can stop the massage to advise them, instruct them, assist them and relate it back to their required curriculum. Any event we choose for our students needs to have tangible classroom objectives.
For this reason, we estimate that for every fully priced, fully paid massage in the office, approximately $4-6.00 of paid massage goes to fund our community outreach. Each time we offer a discount, special or price reduction, we jeopardize the extent of our community budget and outreach.
Please, if you would like to donate to our community outreach, don't hesitate to call us. Any donations toward community outreach are appreciated. We can tell you for which event(s) we used your donation or you can request which specific event you want to sponsor. For an additional fee, we can provide a banner with your name, company or organization as our sponsor.
If you are seeking free massage for your event, please know we have as much as we'd love to help your organization as well, we will consider FIRST those organizations who:
1) Are financially contributing clients of Kneaded Energy, or whose employees are contributing clients of Kneaded Energy.
2) Will offer to pay a partial contribution to cover our costs.
3) Will consider an offer of in-kind products or services in exchange for our massage services. This could include things like:
- bone density tests,
- teeth cleaning,
- eye exams,
- gas cards,
- oil changes,
- free checking,
- fast food or restaurant gift cards,
- movie tickets,
4) Or, those companies willing to apply for and qualify for grant funding through the Massage Therapy Foundation.
We finalize our budget in November/December of each year. If you would like to be considered for 100% donation of services, please submit your request no later than November 1st. Others will be considered on an as needed basis. Thank you.
