Signature Corporate Partner: Bloomingdale’s
As our founding corporate sponsor, Bloomingdale's has helped raise essential financial support for the Child Mind Institute and provided the priceless gift of public awareness.
Since the partnership began in 2009, Bloomingdale’s has raised funds for the Child Mind Institute through sales of the Child Mind Institute Holiday Bear, limited-edition Christopher Radko ornaments, Charitybuzz Holiday Auctions and various in-store events. Along with invaluable national advertising and marketing, the company has helped us establish special relationships with celebrities and designers and forge partnerships with highly respected companies.
“The partnership with Bloomingdale’s was instrumental in the Child Mind Institute’s early success and continues to be essential to our future. Bloomingdale’s took a risk on behalf of an important cause and brought us instant credibility and recognition, putting the Child Mind Institute and children’s mental health care on the map.”
—Dr. Harold S. Koplewicz, MD, President, Child Mind Institute
Our deepest thanks to Tony Spring, Bloomingdale’s Chairman and CEO; Anne Keating, Consultant, Philanthropy; and the entire Public Relations, Marketing, and Visual teams for building an impactful corporate partnership that has changed the trajectory of the Child Mind Institute and children’s mental health for years to come.
“It’s our responsibility to be aware of causes that affect both our customers and employees, and as a company look at issues that need to be brought to the forefront and to take chances. Bloomingdale’s is proud to have been a supporter of the Child Mind Institute from the beginning, and we believe strongly in continuing this tradition.”
—Anne Keating, Consultant and Former Senior Vice President of Public Relations, Special Events & Corporate Philanthropy, Bloomingdale’s

“We could never be as successful a business without being actively involved in important causes,” says Spring. “I watch people — they pick up and they love the products, but then they smile a little bit more because it’s making a difference for the communities and it’s making a difference in the children in their neighborhoods.”
