Congratulations to our 2017 Pay it Forward Recipients

Since 2010, The Sponsorship Report, Hilborn Charity eNEWS 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.

The five recipients of Pay it Forward bursaries for 2017 are:

  • Jordan Abney, BC School Sports, Burnaby BC
  • Gail Hanney, Decoda Literacy Foundation, Vancouver BC
  • Nathan Mckillop, GoodLife Kids Foundation, London ON
  • Rebekah Morrison-Wize, London Arts Council, London ON
  • Michael Wallace, Theatre Museum Canada, Toronto ON

Pay it Forward is a unique program that offers employees of registered Canadian charities an opportunity to attend Sponsorship Week, Canada’s premier professional development conference for sponsorship marketers – free of charge! For bursary recipients from outside the Greater Toronto Area, we are pleased to offer complimentary return airfare to Toronto courtesy of WestJet, departing from a WestJet-served airport nearest to the recipient’s place of employment.

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

The Sponsorship Boot Camp
Moves Management
Building a Business Case for Cause Sponsorship
The Municipal Forum on Sponsorship
What Sponsors Really Want

Thank you to everyone who applied. Be sure to revisit this page next year. Better yet, register for Sponsorship Week 2017 and get a head start on everyone else!
