You can attend Sponsorship Week 2018 for free!

And we’ve extended our application deadline!

Every year since 2010, The Sponsorship Report, its program partners and WestJet have offered five complimentary passes to Sponsorship Week conferences and workshops to deserving charities through our Pay it Forward program. Out-of-town guests travel to and from Toronto courtesy of WestJet.

We’re doing it again.

Sponsorship Week 2018 is a series of six powerful day-long workshops and two half-day workshops aimed at the needs of organizations that solicit sponsorships. Workshops are staged concurrently over three days, this year October 23 to 25, 2018, in downtown Toronto. Top-shelf presenters lead a limited number of attendees through a series of discussions and exercises designed to elevate your sponsorship program to best-in-class. The workshops are intimate, the discussions are frank and lively, and the insights you gain are profound.

It’s an opportunity everyone in the sponsorship business should grasp, and many have. This is your opportunity to do so free of charge.

This year’s recipients may choose to attend any of the following full-day or half-day workshops:

The Sponsorship Boot Camp (October 23, full-day)
What Sponsors Really Want (October 23, full-day)
Building a Business Case for Cause Sponsorship (October 24, full-day)
The Municipal Forum on Sponsorship (October 24, full-day)
Using Research to Drive Sponsorship Revenue (October 24, half-day)
Attracting and Retaining the B2B Sponsor (October 24, half-day)
Prospect, Cultivate, Pitch, Close (October 25, full-day)
Sponsorship in Education: What Every Advancement Professional Needs to Know (October 25, full-day)

Pay it Forward bursaries are available to Canadian registered charities only. The application requires your CRA registration number, and it will be verified against the CRA’s List of Registered Charities.

Bursary recipients may choose to attend one workshop, or build the multi-day program that best meets their professional development needs. To apply for your bursary, click the Pay it Forward logo below and complete the application form.

New workshops added. Deadline extended to July 6, 2018

We have added two new half-day workshops on October 24. If you haven’t yet applied, please take another look at 2018’s Sponsorship Week programming. Applications will now be accepted through July 6, 2018. Bursary recipients will be notified the week of July 16, 2018.

We hope to see you at Sponsorship Week 2018.
