Congratulations to our 2018 Pay it Forward bursary recipients

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.

This year’s recipients are:

  • Khristine Cuthbertson, Crow’s Theatre
  • Christine Freeman, The Sunshine Foundation of Canada
  • Rebecca Hare, Dixon Hall
  • Elizabeth LoPresti, Friends of the Royal Alberta Museum Society
  • Trish Marinoni, The Food Bank of Waterloo Region

Thank you to all our applicants.

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 their 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 year’s recipients will 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 bursary recipients may choose to attend one workshop, or build the multi-day program that best meets their professional development needs.
