Become an Underwriter

As an Underwriter, you will be supporting the various fundraising and recognition events "I Have a Dream" hosts each year. Underwriters receive prominent recognition, depending on their giving level, in "I Have a Dream" publications, advertisements, and at special events. 

Event Underwriters

Giving levels for Event Underwriters begin at $1000, typically, and range up to $15,000 depending on the specific event. Recognition for Event Underwriters varies based on the giving level, but businesses and individuals typically receive a combination of the following:

  • Logo placement in event invitations programs
  • Banner placement at event being underwritten
  • Logo placement/acknowledgment in monthly newsletter in which event occurs
  • Recognition in Annual Report

 

Become a Corporate Dream-Maker

The next tier of Event Underwriters is as a Corporate Dream-Maker. There are three giving levels at which you can become a Corporate Dream-Maker: Doctorate ($15,000), Masters ($10,000), and Bachelors ($5,000). As a Corporate Dream-Maker, you will receive special marketing promotion and recognition for all our events during the life of your underwriter period.
