#DifferentChoicesSponsorships

Show Your Support for the Aspirations of Students with Disabilities

Schools for Children is seeking sponsors for Different Choices 2021 and 2022.

Our sponsors are organizations that understand that learning and mental health disabilities need not hold anyone back from pursuing their goals. 

We are proud to work with organizations that share our commitment to inclusion and opportunity—and to ending the stigma associated with disabilities. 

A limited number of sponsorships is available starting at $500. 

Sponsorship Opportunties

Sponsorships include recognition on our website, in our email marketing and in our social media. Additional benefits are available and can be customized according to your preferences and needs.

Please email us at support@differentchoices.org and ask to speak to a member of our team.

Thank you so much for your interest.

Available Sponsorships

(One sponsorship available at this level)

We seek a presenting sponsor who shares our commitment to equity in education and to the idea that neither learning disabilities nor mental illness should preclude opportunities for higher education or a successful career.

We are looking for a partner who wants to help end the stigma associated with these differences, one who believes that a person with dyslexia, someone who experiences anxiety or depression, or a student with OCD or an eating disorder should not be excluded from opportunities to learn, to work and to grow.

Your support will ensure that we will have the resources needed to create a unique and valuable experience for the 20-25% of American high school students who have experienced such challenges and will require some assistance to succeed. Our aim is to help them find that assistance to have confidence in the future.  

We are deeply grateful for the valuable and generous contributions of in-kind sponsors to the success of this event. To learn more about our needs, please email us at support@differentchoices.org. Thank you so much!

(Two sponsorships—one Showcase and one Opportunity Expo—are available)

Sponsorship of either the College Showcase or the Voc/Tech Opportunity Expo helps us offer a virtual software platform and personal support to our exhibitors.

As a new event, this support is critical. The platform reduces costs of production for the fair and the costs of  managing exhibitors.

Your gift makes it possible for us to truly maximize our own investment of organizational resources in this new endeavour and provide a superb virtual experience for both attendees and exhibitors with presentations, virtual booths, registration and interaction all in one online place.

Different Choices 2021 is committed to educational equity and opportunity.

The Equity Champion sponsorship allows us offer waivers and discounts for college exhibitors and other programs that primarily serve BIPOC, immigrant and first-generation students. By offer reduced fees or even eliminating fees, we are able to ensure a diverse inclusive group of exhibitors.

The Equity Champion also makes it possible for us to offer waivers for workshop fees. These workshops help students and families access specific practical information and gain skills and assistance with financial aid forms, college applications, and more. These workshops require us to charge fees for knowledgeable and experienced instructors. By funding waivers, the Equity Champion increases access for all.
